In life overcoming obstacles is not something that is easy to do. Depending on what you are trying to overcome it may take days, months, or even years. One mistake I made in life was dropping out if high school when I was in the ninth grade. This was my obstacle that I had to overcome. At times I would sit and think about where I could have been in the years that had passed me by. As years went by I wanted more and more to receive my GED so I could further my education and make something out of myself.
So in 2011, I decided to enroll in the GED program at the community college in my city. I was attending GED classes twice a week at the tech which wasn’t easy since I had been out of school for over fifteen years. However, because I dropped out of high school in the ninth grade I knew receiving my GED would be a challenge. Once I started taking my GED test, I would take test after test praying that I was getting closer to my goal.
Finally, two years later I have my GED, and soon after I applied at the community college and started taking classes. I knew I wanted to further my education, but I’m still not sure about what I want to do. In a month, I will be finished with my first semester of college and I’m ready to start my next. In final analysis, overcoming an obstacle is not easy to do, to overcome my obstacle took me two years, but it was well worth it.
