First off, I hope all of you had a most excellent Easter/Resurrection Sunday. I was blessed to have spent the time with my family and at the local church we attend, and so passed the day quite well and with much happiness.
I return to The Takedown with some news, namely that yours truly is going back to college! That’s right – at a young 47 I am going BACK to school to obtain a Medical Assistant Associate’s Degree. Much has happened in my absence, including a most unhappy stint at a local hospital after being hired in the ICCU. (That’s another post, and another subject, so be watching for it!) It cemented in my mind that if I wanted to put the skills that I have been given to use, as well as make the most of my EMT certification, I had two choices; work full time in EMS (which is problematic because of my epilepsy conflicting with having to work overnight hours in most cases) or get off my lazy backside, GET back to school and finish the college that I had started Lo! so many years ago.
Guess which one I chose?
Friends – if you take nothing else away from this, take this with you. You are NEVER too old, too far in your career, or too anything to make a new start. So long as you are breathing, you can make a change. DO it.
God bless, my friends!
