The important thing now is that I concentrate on myself, my family, and the business, all of which seriously lacked in much needed attention. So, once things are more balanced, I will go back and complete my degree. I know people say that every day and never return, but I will. I have to. I don't like to leave things unfinished, and this falls into that category. This is just a small hiccup in my academic journey, and hiccups go away eventually, right?! Plus, it's just a break...nothing more.
I feel good about this decision. Of course, I am not overly thrilled with it, but I feel good about it. In my mind, that's enough.
Now I get to spend more time with these faces:
I am happy, and that's what counts.
