Yes, I did sit my exam today, and yes, I did come home and celebrate with ice-cream smothered in home made salted caramel sauce.
I set myself a goal this semester to complete a unit at University.
Just one unit. Doesn't seem much, does it?
I thought it would be ridiculously difficult. I worried I wouldn't cope!
Yet it was surprisingly breezy, and just enough to keep me engaged, but not overwhelmed.
I am not normally the "setting goals and reaching them" kind of person.
I am the "dreaming about it, thinking about it, wishing and willing it to happen" kind of person.
Most of the time.
Today, I proved to myself that I can stick to the goal.
Proved to myself that the goal I have is enough;
Enough motivation to do the hard work, and set my sights on the prize.
Juggling motherhood with this study business has not been easy.
But today, I am patting myself on the back, enjoying ice-cream with my peeps, and thanking God for a couple of months break.
