“The Best Time in My Life”
(Reflection on Capstone Project)
“I shall be telling this with a sigh
somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
and that has made all the difference”
(The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost)
Long time ago, I took my small steps in the road less traveled by,
A little bit scary, did not know what to expect……just keep on dreaming the impossible dream.
There are times that the dark storm hung in the horizon,
And suddenly future looks so uncertain, impossible….
But deep in my heart I still belief this is the right path….
It is the only reason to continue my quest searching for that rainbow…..
And now…… I am standing here, face to face with my biggest dream….:
the pursuit of my Master Degree in Early Childhood Education in Walden University
I could not believe my eyes that my small step has taken me this far…
Along in my journey I have learn so much….
Not just learning how to be a good writer, but also be a good listener,
Learn how to lead as well as how to serve,
Learn to focus, …. not making the excuse!
And most of that, I learn that when I surround myself with great, enthusiastic people like you all…
It would inspire me to grow my ideas, then achieve and accomplish
the glorious quest I have been dreaming long time ago…………
At the end I thank you: the wonderful people along my journey,
Particularly in the last journey doing my Capstone Project,
I thank you Dr. Teri Davis for a great guidance to bring us into a right path in this course
I thank you everyone as my colleague in this last course for being a great company,
Who give me the insight, encouragement, and support…..
I am glad that we ‘finish the race’ together.
I hope someday we are standing hand in hand, face to face, arm in arm…
To do what is right: to be the children’s guide
to celebrate the different colors they bring into the world….
As the long sunny day that soon will pass by,
Childhood is fleeting like a blink of an eye,
All that we want is for EVERY CHILD to cherish the childhood…
so they can say that
“This is the best time in my life!”
