Going Back To School

My boss wanted me to go to college even though I had been out of high school eleven years. I was scared and afraid of failure. Many people told me I had a good job. I didn't go to college because it was a lot of work. A couple of weeks later while on the way home from work and trying to decide about college, I saw a sign that read "On The Plains Of Indecision Lie The Souls Of Countless Millions". I said I'm not going to be one of them, and the next day, I called a junior college to find out what I needed to do to get admitted the next quarter. I took the necessary action and enrolled. Even after relocation three times during the next several years, I achieved my goal and graduated. My mother was so proud of me for this accomplishment and I wish my father had been alive to see me graduate.
