These past few months away from the journal I've been
putting plans into effect and the fruits of my labor have
ripened. From here it's all about what I can do for myself.
I guess it's been that way all along but now I really
believe it. Always it's easy to hear something in words but
to actually understand....

My bro is 12 years younger than me. We talk alot and get
along. I used to warm his milk in the middle of the night
and change his diapers. He's already taller than me and I
hope he doesn't make the same mistakes I have made.

In the midst of wanting so much more for my bro I realized
I should want the same for myself. Telling someone to do
more, to want more in life doesn't work unless they're
receptive to what you have to say. Setting an example is
personal proof of what you stand for.

I'm going back to school. I start in the Fall and am very
excited/anxious/nervous. I'll be that older student on
campus taking advantage of her second chance. I'll learn so
much more this time around. Funny how life's blessings
unfold.
