After many unexpected set-backs, I am now in the thick of my dissertation work for my PhD. My data collection has started for my PhD dissertation project & it has brought forth many feelings. Many, many feelings. This whole process has been a little bit of a rollercoaster. Someday I will share with you all the story of how I became a Dietitian but in a nutshell, I am non-traditional student. I have been a parent the entire time I have pursued my education. I received my Associate of Science & Bachelor of Science & Dietetic Internship to become a Registered Dietitian from the time my oldest daughter was 1 1/2 years old until she was 8. I had my second daughter during that time and she was 3 1/2 when I finished the DI and became a RD. The internship counted towards half of a Master of Arts degree in Dietetics, so I finished that. And I thought I as finished.

I think making an effort to make any positive changes in your life is absolutely fantastic. I think it is wonderful no matter what time of the year you do it! New Year's is just that time of year when people take a minute to think about themselves and what they would like to accomplish for the upcoming 365 days and believe me...I am a firm believer that people (including myself) do not take enough time to really sit and ponder what we can do to make ourselves better. We often put to much pressure on ourselves trying to do things to make things better for other people, but can forget that we need goals, hope, and certainly attention and love for ourselves from ourselves.
