A Letter To Mark The End...

A Letter To Mark The End ...

Yesterday I finished off my coursework, proof read it for the final time and handed it all in. You see it was the last night of my Business Administration Level 1 adult learners course, a very sad night for me as I've enjoyed it so much. Every Tuesday night since last September I've studied with a group of amazing people from all walks of life. Not only have I learn't so much about the tasks and duties I will need for eventually working in the Office environment but more importantly I learnt a lot about me. I learnt that I am capable of doing so much more that I ever dreamed of, as long as I put my mind to it. I'm going to miss my new friends but I will see them again soon when we start the Level 2 next September. Until then I'm sure we'l stay in touch through Emails.

As I was leaving last night, I thanked my Tutor for a wonderful class and shook her hand goodbye. In return she handed me a small white envelope and said "Here's something for you to read" intrigued, I opened it as soon as I got outside. It read:

"Dear Diane,

I am feeling very optimistic about starting this course with you. I am looking forward to learning something new whilst having the pleasure of meeting some new people. At the moment I am a stay at home mum of 3 kids but my youngest is now 15 months old and I'm feeling that It's about time I push my life forward.

I want the best for my kids and I want to set them a good example in life. Me joining your course is the very first step for me on my journey to doing this.

I'm so happy to be here and I promise I will do my best and give it my all.

Yours Sincerely


I had wrote that letter to my Tutor on our very first session. She had asked me to write Why I was there and that is what I had wrote. Attached to my letter was a small slip of paper. It simply said 

"You should be proud of yourself!"

I hadn't really thought about it until that point in time but do you know what? I am proud of myself.
I've learnt so much and made some lovely new friends. I've passed my first course and I will do better for my kids. I don't often pat myself on the back as I just do what I have to, to get through the day but yesterday something triggered in my head and I did actually feel proud ( and quite sad ) but also very pleased with myself. To you, it's just a letter BUT to me It's so much more! It's now in my Special Box so that the next time I'm feeling down, I can read it and feel proud again.


  1. Well done sweetie! From my personal experience, it is quite hard studying while having a child, let alone three!
    Congratulations on finshing the first level!
    Indeed you should be proud of yourself! :) xx

  2. Aw Thank You Lilinha x You really are an Angel xxx

  3. Thank you and keep up the good work! Remember to go to your special box whenever things get difficult! I'm sure you will do great! :) x

  4. Well done, I used to go to night school to be "me" not such & such's Mum, as much as I loved that, I have a name!
    I'm a fully trained book keeper, could do shorthand at 150wpm (which is fast I'll tell ya!), got A level Maths, English, Chemistry, Physics & a GCSE in photography & english lit (would have loved a level in them, but they didn't run the courses, I've also got a pass in conversational French, & did 1 year of law, which I loved, but sadly we moved & they don't do it nightschool here.
    It's great to go back & learn when you are ready & attain something which only a very few months ago would have seemed impossible, so all credit to you.
    I'm still intouch with people from most of my classes, including the tutors, my maths tutor was actually teeaching one of my daughters at school at the same time as me (weird!!) but I was able to pazss things along & ask for help through her HEHE.
    Make sure you show us your certificate when you receive it, mine are all in pride of place in ....... the loo! But it's there I can sit & look at them with pride.
