Starting Over…Again

Well, tomorrow begins the MFA program for me. I have started over in career choices several times in my life, now. First, I was going to be a lifer in the military. That did not end well after my deployment to the Middle East. Next, I spent 16 years of higher education attempting to become a doctor. That fell through, too. I am an amateur rock climber, a beginning saxophone player, and (I like to think) a budding author. I am also an artist. Jack of all trades, master of none. I have two B.S. degrees and an M.S. degree. I am really hoping to add to those this MFA in Creative Writing from SNHU eventually.

Starting over…again. My life has been a series of doors slamming in my face. At least that is what it feels like. I have had new beginnings, too, and I do not believe that any learning, knowledge, or experience is wasted. It all counts for something, even if it is just an answer to a question on a trivia game show. Really, though, I am glad that I have had all of these experiences in my life because that is what makes me who I am. I am exactly who I am supposed to be. Sometimes I think I would like to be somebody else…but who? Who else would I be? Just me. And that is okay. Like I said, I am exactly who I am supposed to be. Are you?
