A dream that won't die!

Over last few months I have been thinking a lot about what I want to do, where do I want to head with my life. Do I want to go back into Property Management or another administrative job where I am stuck in front of a computer, dealing with tedious jobs and irate customers who seem to have nothing better to do than abuse people to make themselves feel better. Not that the problem gets sorted that way either!

I finished High School in Grade 10 to have my gorgeous son. I had just sorted out subjects for senior year so that I could get into University to study Nursing. Obviously, it was a hard decision to make as I was very young at the time but also I had to decide between a new life inside of me or my dream career.

So that is what I have been trying to work out lately. I can't let a dream that I have had since I was 15 go. If it has been in my head for that long, isn't that a good sign that it is not just one off!?

I want to be a midwife, an amazing midwife. I would love to give the support given to me when I had my son & daughter. I would love to help new mothers bond with their newborn babies, help get them breastfeeding, get them to nurture this beautiful time.
