Don't just live in the world

The final countdown

April 7th, 2016 | Posted by Amy Boughner in #MommyScholar

Two years ago I sat on the front porch with my Dad, trying to figure out what exactly I was doing with my career and where to go next and it was decided, somehow, all of a sudden, that I should really do the Masters in Political Management Program.

Two years ago I re-applied to university to start a two year journey that would end in a Masters degree.

Two years have passed. Many essays have been written, articles have been read, big thoughts have been had and tears have been shed. And today I finished all the last of my course work.

It feels like a long journey and also somehow like no time has passed at all.

I’ve met new people, re-introduced myself to people I already knew. I have been reinvigorated. Reminded of my love for politics. The important work that important people do here in my hometown.

I am more sure than ever of who I am and what my priorities are and also somehow less sure of what comes next. I could do anything. I feel like I could do anything. I can do good. And I know what good I can do.

I don’t know how to feel right now, except ready to keep moving.
