Back to school...for me.

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

So this week, I decided that something "has got to give" in regard to my happiness in life.

Work is work. emoticon It sure is not what it used to be (how could it be?), and even though I know that....it is still frustrating and sad for me. Transition wise, I have settled in...and things are what they are. I have coursed out the year in fact...but not in a way that makes me happy inside. And for me...THAT is a PROBLEM.

I have these ideas in my head that will not go away...and I am finally giving them serious consideration when it comes to my own career path. But I need to have some schooling to back me up...so back I go!

It's a year long course, and I will not graduate officially until next year. In 6 months, however, I will be able to take on clients. I will reveal what it is that I am doing at a later date, but trust me....it ties into my journey here on Spark... a whole lot.

In the meantime...I will work, and study at night. I will be a mom, and study at night. I will be a wife, and study at night. I will run my own direct selling business for extra cash to pay for this course on the side....and study at night.

When I make decisions like this, I usually hem and haw, and get sick in the process. This time, I tackled that hemming and hawing straight on, made the decision and dove right in....and you know what? I felt right. Just like when I dove into Sparking back in 2008. No looking back...nothing to lose but weight and nothing to gain but my health back. With this, I have nothing to lose but some money and everything to gain back in my own career, or a start of a new path that is wild and crazy...but MINE.

Wish me luck everyone. I will be Sparking a lot more now.... it's going to be part of my "process". emoticon

Take care and have a great day!!!

    Congratulations on your decision, Annie! You must be proud of going back to school. Yes, it will be challenging, yes, it will be hard but as you said you're creating a new path for yourself and your career and this thought alone can give you the strength to continue.
I've been wanting to go back to school ever since I had my kids. And now that the working conditions here in Greece are becoming even more difficult and I've been out of work for over a decade, I realize what a big mistake I've made... I'm still hoping though. Maybe one day...

I'm cheering you on and wishing you all the luck in the world! And I can't wait to read more about your new, chosen career!

I've been thinking of school too, but just a class here and there, not a full deal. emoticon

    Wow. I'm touched by you here. And count me in as one believing in your process...

I need to do this too!
Sparking has been a deep lesson in life
One for me to continue letting in
"hemming and hawing" is NOT the way forward ;-)

You are Lovely Awesome.
Your friend,
Paula

    I like it. I'm in exactly the same spot you're in, giving it the whole year (it was a year in September) and not being happy at all and understanding that there is no going back. I'm not where you are though, where I know what I want to do and how to get it done but I feel that if I can be motivated by others who are in the same position as me then maybe there's hope for me as well and hopefully soon.

Good luck, lady! Hang in there, you're doing great!
