I am officially going back to school as a stay at home mom. I am going to be a full-time online student at one of my local community colleges. My degree will be a transfer Associates Of Arts & Humanities.

I have not been to college since 2016. Of course, I am excited and nervous. However, I am ready to take on this new journey as a stay at home mom. No one placed an imaginary battery in my back and told me to go back to school. 

I am going back to college because I desire better. I will also be the first person from my immediate family that has ever gone to college. Earning my associates and my bachelors degree will mean very much to me. I will be breaking yet another generational curse on my immediate family. 

I do not have many people in my everyday life that believe in my potential. I also do not have anything to prove to anyone, but myself. I am self-driven and motivated to accomplish everything that I set out to do. Being a stay at home mom to a now 22-month-old highly active toddler has brought me so much joy. (I am also still breastfeeding as well.)

I just can not sit still on my dreams. I am not that woman who waits to be given anything. As much as I enjoy being a stay at home mom, I still have ambition beyond motherhood. 

I desire to amount to more than just my natural hair or product reviews on YouTube. Being on YouTube is just a hobby. I could never take it seriously after the past five years I have placed into it. 

I desire to one day have a fresh start in a new fulfilling career. Doing YouTube videos will remain a side hustle. I want to be able to branch off and make something more of myself. 

I will be taking my talent for writing to a higher and more academic level. I am going into this semester with confidence and faith. God knows that I am ready for this next season. I also will document my online college journey as a stay at home mom on here as well. 

If you are a stay at home mom that’s considering going back to school I want you to know that you are capable. 

Do not allow anyone to talk you out of bettering your life. Do not feel guilty about taking out student loans. You must do what you need to do to open another door for yourself and family. You will be able to pay the student loan debt. 

Your future self will thank you for stepping out on faith.
