Looking to the future

Hey guys 

I hope this is the right place for this. Anyway I went to an offer holders open day on Wednesday at uni and it made me really excited for the future. It made everything seem so real for me and I can’t wait. I am going to be doing a degree in mental health nursing for those who don’t know and I am so proud of myself for using my experiences to care for others. I can’t wait for September to get started and be able to officially call myself a student nurse! Never thought I’d be able to get to this point but what it shows is that it’s never too late to follow your dreams and even if you take a different path, you can still end up at the right destination. I am 25 now and this will be my second degree, so it has taken me quite a while to get to where I want to be haha! 

Does anyone else else have any future dreams? Doesn’t have to be career goals can be anything. Even if it seems impossible I’d love to hear :) 
The sun will rise and we will try again

    Aww, this is lovely to read <3 Good on you, I bet you'd be great in mental health nursing.

    I dream of being a singer in a rock band. It probs won't happen though lol - though I'm willing to work for it and I'd love it if it could come true. I'm 14 so I guess I have some time to think about it.

    Sometimes all you need is one person to believe in you , for you to begin to believe in yourself.

    Hey @Jellyelephant

    I'm so happy for you! You're going to be an amazing mental health nurse and I'm very excited to hear all about your course when you start in September. 

    I completely agree with what you said, it's never too late to follow your dreams and it's okay if it takes a bit longer to get there than you hope. It's so inspiring how strong you really are to have fought through everything and turn your life around. You've found your way forward and I'm so proud of you Jelly! 

    Thank you for your lovely message about The Mix and all the members here. I'm so glad we were there for you when you had no-one. I can't imagine how hard that time was for you and I'm so glad you found us! I can't imagine the community without you :) 

    Well done again Jelly! This is the perfect time to celebrate with a unicorn cake. Keep us updated with everything and I hope the occupational health check goes okay too. <3

    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤
