The topic for this week's blog is for me to tell you what I have been experiencing over the past 6 weeks. ...Really?!!...Does anyone really want, or need, to know?...Does it matter?
I have a brain that analyzes everything (drives my children & husband crazy) and becomes detail oriented about really minute, meaningless, non-essential items. I become anal to the point of OCD and must talk myself back to what is necessary on a regular basis.
I demand perfection of myself and others. School has taught me to pick my battles, reset my priorities, and let the "non-essentials" slide. I have learned my house does not have to be clean: just not a hazard. The dogs do not care if they are walked everyday: 2 minutes or 2 hours of attention is all the same to them. My children are teens and therefore will never be really happy. My husband won't be happy until I am happy, and that won't be until I have finally finished my degree AND have a job that I enjoy. I have also learned that I do not need straight A's, but I need to learn and understand the material. Prospective employers do not care that I graduate top of the class, just that I am certified and can do a job well done.
