Results day is upon us. For the last 50+ days I’ve tried to push the CFA, the months studying, the personal sacrifice, the exam day experience, push all of it deep into my subconscious for sanities sake. For the most part I successfully moved on and had a great few weeks of summer but now we’re on the eve of a day that will have great impact on most of our lives. Believe me I share the same anxieties as most of you, but I also received a healthy dose of perspective that I just wanted to share. 10 days before the exam my wife calls me home from the library as I was wrapping up a practice test. As I walk through the front door she says “I know this is probably a bad time to drop this on you but we’re pregnant!” Of course I was elated and I did my best to be thoughtful for her but also remain focused on my goal until June 1. Fast forward to today when Im sitting in my office thinking about the content of tomorrow’s email from the CFAI. I get another call from my wife, the gender results have arrived. So tonight I get to find out which color we’re painting the nursery and the best part about these results is that no matter the outcome there is only cause for celebration. Kind of puts tomorrow into perspective for me!
Good luck to everyone tomorrow, be proud of your hard work regardless of the results and dont forget to keep everything in perspective.
