What are your plans for the weekend? On Saturday, I plan on dropping my kids to Nana’s house. It’s part of the self-care that I have needed so badly and a gift for finishing my bachelor’s degree. I am so happy and relieved.
I submitted my last paper on Wednesday at 11:15 p.m. and I took a moment to exhale. I felt like I had been holding my breathe for a little over two years and now, I can finally breathe again.
I thought about the moment when I would walk across the podium with my daughters watching me. COVID-19 has taken that moment away, but I know my accomplishment is not diminished.
Now that I have come to the end of this journey, there are a few things I look forward to:
• Reading a book for pleasure
• Doing more meditation + yoga
• Not constantly feeling anxious about homework deadlines
There are so many mothers out there working, taking care of their children and home, and doing their best to finish degrees. You are amazing! You are diligent! You are strong and you are more capable than you know.
Walk into the weekend giving yourself some well deserved self care, because I sure will.
What are you up to this weekend?
