It upsets me to think that other people think they actually have a say in what I want to do with my life. Some people will question why you are going towards a different goal in life. You dont have to answer to them. Let them wonder and keep going!
I am a Nurse, not because of the pay; because I love to help and "nurse" the sick. When I wake up I don't say "I have to go to work to day". Instead I say "I get to go to work today". It is an honor to help and serve my patients.
