I think every so often everyone needs some motivation and inspiration.
Here are some things to remember about going back to school after a break.
#1. Being a nontraditional student is something you can be proud of.
#2. Whatever has happened in the past, if you learn from it, it was useful to you.
#3. Don't worry if you get a setback. You can always start again.
#4. It doesn't matter what other people think. What matters is what YOU think.
#5. You CAN do it.
