Young at Heart – Tanka (and a bit more) :)

Back to school image

It’s time to step out

of my comfort zone and back

onto a campus –

new goal is exciting, but

my nerves are doing dances

I began working full-time after high school,
married in my late twenties,
had children and here I am.

I’ve just been inspired by my daughter graduating
from community college.
A
dditionally, there were many older adults
who graduated, as well,
some in their fifties and
the oldest was 73!
I’m 52, so I think I fit in, don’t you? 🙂

My goal is to return and work towards an AA in English;
a great opportunity to refresh my brain in many aspects.
Can I do it?  Of course I can…
but I’m a little nervous, too.

I feel good about this; something new for me,
as my kids are now moving on, too.
My hubby has also encouraged me,
so the timing feels right…
to satisfy a hunger to learn more
and to keep my brain young.

If any of you can relate to this new chapter in life,
I’d love to hear your story.
Wish me luck!
🙂
