Finally Done….

December 20, 2008 at 3:30 am (Uncategorized)

I finished high school yesterday. Thank goodness. It has taken a lot of work to be done early, but I did it. I really did it.

I have worked my butt off getting A’s and B’s during high school. It’s time to be done.  I am remembering back to my early years of high school. I would always say, “I can’t do this. I am going to fail.” I didn’t believe in myself. I would come home crying time after time thinking that I just suck.  I would always wonder why I had a learning disability. I hated it. I would always feel out of place because I was the dumb one and everyone else was very smart. I always felt dumb.  My Teachers, Mom, Dad and Whitney would tell me time after time that I am doing GREAT. They would say, “You would do great in college.” Many times I would have a teacher say, “I really want you to go to college.” This is what made me get through high school. Thanks to everyone who helped me.

I have really come to understand that God gave me a learning disability for a reason, even if I really didn’t want it. Yeah I sure did not like it, but I am going to be able to show someone else what I went through and help them get through it. It is a BIG challenge I feel God has put out there for me and I accomplished it. I wonder what the next new challenge will be.

I am excited to be able to help someone get through the same problems that I have went through.

    Finally done – you’ve only just begun. You are totally amazing and spectacularly beautiful to boot. You could do absolutely anything you want to with success. I’m so happy to be your Grandma.

    Elissa, this is so great! I’m really proud of you. Just like Whitney has been able to encourage you, you will be able to encourage others.
