I am type-what-ever-is-not-A....anyone ever wonder what you are if you're not considered Type A? Well that's me. Type...B? Something like that. I am not a planner; I'm spontaneous. I am not well organized; I clean when the urge strikes. I make lists BUT then I never touch them again. So the way I look at "plans" is that they are more like goals. I "planned" on being married with two kids by the time I was 30 and I sure as heck met those goals. I planned to own a house someday and now we do. I plan to write more...and I will. So this plan to become a midwife is really going against the grain of my urge to just go with the flow. Sure, that's a good thing, I'm just not the best planner and this plan of mine, while the goal is and will always be the same, it keeps changing. I was planning on being in nursing school by January, but that is not happening. Maybe by next summer but quite possibly not until January 2015. Am I okay with that? I have to be. I'm not a college kid anymore. I have a million other reasons to take it slow, my family and work being two of those big reasons. So the plan is to be flexible, patient, and to keep on in that general direction.
I seriously cannot wait to be wearing scrubs everyday, tossing my hair up in a loose pony tail, snapping on the blue gloves and catching a baby!
