Ordered my books

August 5th, 2010 at 08:23 am

My financial aid finally went through. I am eligible for the pell grant. I was going to order the books and use my mom's credit card, but I was able to use the financial aid at the online bookstore! They cost a little bit more, but now I don't add to the money I owe my mom. I am so excited. Classes Start August 16. Hopefully it will be smooth sailing. I am taking 3 courses, something I have never attempted before. Wish me luck!

Almost forgot my positive!

I am a nurturing caring mother who puts the happiness of her children above her own.

    Nice that financial aid will cover your books.

    I don't mean to be negative, but always putting others before yourself is not necessarily positive. It is good to be a good caretaker, but if you don't take care of yourself you are no good to anyone else.

    CCF: How about " I am learning to take care of myself in order to take care of others"?

    I think "I am a nurturing caring mother." is a great positive! But I do agree with creditcardfree's point about the rest of the sentence. I think your correction is a good goal to strive for, and you've come a long ways with that already! :-) One of my favorite lines is: "If mom ain't happy, nobody's happy."

    You've made so much progress, and you should continue to recognize and celebrate that! And "I am a nuturing caring mother" is a great positive. But, putting others first may not always the best thing...I think of it as the mom putting on the oxygen mask first in the airplane. Smile

    I'm glad you were able to turn that statement around. Sometimes we don't realize what we are telling ourselves!
