I did it!

I did it!

YES! I just received the news that I passed the final comprehensive exam for my Master’s in Psychology Degree. I have absolutely loved learning and expanding my knowledge of psychology; however, I am ready to be done with graduate school. In March 2020, I received the confirmation that I was accepted into National Louis University, but then did not start until September. It has been exciting and rewarding, but also challenging and stressful working full-time while going to school all while wondering if I could do it. It still has not sunk in that I don’t have homework to do, but it feels good. My intention long ago after getting my Bachelor’s degree was that after taking off a couple of years to work and save, I would return for my master’s degree or law school. Thirty-six years later, my dream has come true. I am not sure where this will lead me, but I think advanced education and learning is a gift and privilege. Thank you to those who supported and encouraged me during this journey. It’s never to late to pursue your dreams. Cheers!!

All through my day, no matter where I go, or what I do, I am always looking for the good in people, in the world, in my life or even just in my day.

While it is easy to focus on the negative aspects of life, I choose to continue looking for the good in people and in the world around me, and I want to share why they do what they do. I am the proud mother of three adult daughters and live in the Chicago area. I have worked in the Early Childhood Education field since 2001, and I write books when the inspiration comes.
