Okay, …it has started, …I have started. Rolling up my sleeves and getting ready to start this journey. The readings are already hitting home with me. Life is aligning things for me that is answering some of my questions and pointing me toward taking this journey. Who am I to ignore these signs. I will embrace them.
First webinar was very informative and I will admit that being back in ‘school’ has re-ignited my feelings from the ‘era’ of me being in school. I am nervous, okay I am scared, and a little worried about the course, the course load, homework and getting into the groove. First big assignment of developing my DMP (Definite Major Purpose) has me very concerned. I got it done but know that it is not anywhere near what it needs to be. I feel very confused, like I have been for most of my life, but also just realized that is probably why I am where I am because I have never been able to determine or been able to learn how to set my sites on the big picture of what it is that I want. What a change it will be for me if I am able to learn how to identify what I want most of out of my life. I could actually have a focus on which to keep my sites on. Something, quite honestly, I have been missing out on my whole life. Don’t get me wrong, there were times that I knew what I wanted but those were more short term, quick gratifications; driver’s license, passing courses, certification tests, etc. Who knew that this type of goal, goal setting, having a DMP, could have such strong effects on someones life. A journey of a thousand miles starts with just one step. I took my first step earlier tonight, stand by for the week by week description of my journey. It looks like it is going to be legend…….wait for it….ary.
