Today I am celebrating the first day of my final semester of school!
Three years ago I was inspired to finish a photography degree that I had started when I was 18. When I left my degree unfinished I was just one class shy of graduating. The problem was that it was a math course and well, me and math have never been on good terms so I shrugged it off thinking it wasn't important and instead moved to California to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. And that I did, I have had an amazing career working on many movies, commercials and then The Bachelor for nearly a decade. After completing that pesky math class and receiving my Associates Degree in Photography I found myself feeling confident and more studious than ever so I took the leap and applied for undergraduate school. My intention behind going for my Bachelor's degree after all of these years was simply to prove to myself that I could do it. I chose a school that would take my previous credits and a major based on what I found to be interesting. I figured, if I was going to have to do this I might as well do something I enjoyed learning about. Little did I know that it was my inner compass making the decision for me. Choosing to learn about cognitive and human development was not by random, it is and always has been my passion and core focus in life. I was just too scared of not being smart enough to pursue it. I often said to others that If I were smart enough I would go to school to become a therapist. I am so glad that I took a leap of faith by believing in myself because these past two years have connected me to my inner wisdom, my inner writer, and my inner core truths. THAT I AM SMART ENOUGH!
