I have my pre-data collection coming up next Tuesday and I have to say, I don’t feel ready. Fortunately, I have also been asked to give a talk and teach a class on Sunday so I am hopeful that I will be able to build my confidence with that “practice. My mentor believes I am ready and she told me I did a great job on my first run through of the PowerPoint Presentation.
After I finish this call I will be ready to start collecting “data” by scheduling my interviews. I still have find another participant but I am still hopeful that I can blast this out. My 2015 graduation is starting to become a distant hope because I have had to play the waiting game so much. Trying to keep my spirits up and head high as I push forward.
This week/month has been difficult for me as I have been concerned about my abilities in general. I sometimes focus on the wrong things, the odds that I would have ever gotten to where I am. After reaching out to peers I remembered what I got me this far, the simple faith that I can. I can do anything I want do.
Earning a degree has nothing to do with your past or your background; it has everything to do with your faith in yourself and your determination. You need to stay focused and organized, keep your eye on the ball, and keep going!
