Well, I did it!! I completed my last week of course work for updating my legal secretary certification. I posted in January about “going back to school”, and the last six weeks have not been easy, but they have been rewarding.
The first week I wasn’t sure if I would be able to do all the work and even wondered if I would do well. As the weeks went on, getting the work done became easier and less stressful. I had to change how I managed my time, but it was worth it. Now I only wait for my official certification to arrive in the mail.
My family has been very supportive and encouraging and I am proud of myself for stepping out of my comfort zone and routine to pursue this new phase of “working” again. Next step, the job search!
