Having an established career and a full time job in said career, and a home to care for, what I struggle with is finding the will to dedicate time to studying, or pursuing a new degree. The ever-present possibility of failing, the looming financial black cloud of doubt in the distance, the ego-block inconvenience of leaving my field of expertise to join the bottom of the ranks of a new field (at my age). Every time I even think about the juggle of cooking/working/cleaning/reading/normal life struggles, never mind sleeping, and the risk of looking like an old fart sitting in front of books too big for her, I falter. Because the scaredy-cat in me says “Why are you even attempting to pursue this long lost dream, when you’ve already stacked the odds against yourself”.
