I got the bad news the other day. Although I had been accepted into St. George's Preveterinary program, I was not accepted into their veterinary program. The pain, shock, the feelings of inadequacy, and disappointment slowed to a dull ache quickly with the love of family and friends. Thoughts of past mistakes and missed opportunities pound on my mind's door incessantly. I am trying with all my might to counter them with thoughts of today. This moment. From here on it's all that matters.
I'll be staying here, at home, finishing my B.A. in Biology until the time comes to try again. And I will try again, and again, and again until I reach my goal. In many ways, despite whatever my setbacks may be, I still feel incredibly lucky. I am so fortunate to have my fiance, Brian. My family. My best friend. My cat. The opportunity to even pursue higher education. My health. My talents and my mind. And you, my blogging friends. There so are so many things about my life I love that wading around in sadness would be a complete waste of time and energy. So here's to a new year.
Here's to never giving up on our dreams.
