You Can.

This week my place at University to study midwifery was confirmed, 72 days until I start.

I’m doing what I’ve always wanted to do.

When I became a shell of a person at the hands of an abusive boyfriend at 19, I thought I couldn’t.

When I dropped out of university the first time at 20, too tired and too fragile to go on, I thought I couldn’t.

When I fell pregnant three months into a relationship at 21, I thought I couldn’t.

When it became clear my daughter was disabled at 23, I thought I couldn’t.

When my husband left me and I had another baby at 24 I thought I couldn’t.

When I became my daughters carer at 25, I thought I couldn’t.

When I started college at 26, I thought I might try.

And here I am, 27, two children, one pesky dog and a whole load of baggage. And I know I can. And I know I will.

And so can you. You can and will do whatever you damn well want to. Never give up, no matter what.
