About a month ago, I opened up and shared that I’m starting a new journey. I’m going back to school!
At least for the next 5 months. I’m getting certified as a Life Coach. I’m at a point in my life that I’ve chosen to do things that I find fulfilling now that I know what those things are. One of those things is helping and motivating others. That’s why blogging is so fulfilling for me, it’s incorporating my love of writing and combining it with my drive to motivate others.
I started the first course this week. I opted for the online format for the foundation course. I had 4 assignments for the week one of which included interviewing a fellow classmate. It’s been a long time since I’ve been in a formal study environment so I was a bit nervous but the bookworm in me came out quickly! I was excited to read through material and watch the videos soaking up all of the information offered. It’s very exciting for me because for the first time I feel like I’ve made a choice with my destiny in mind.
I’m not just taking a job to pay the bills or taking a class to get a job that pays a little more so the paycheck can stretch a little farther. I’m taking this because I know it’s what I want to do with my life. I can’t wait to see what lies ahead!
When did you know what you wanted to be when you grew up? Do you enjoy what you do? Have you ever contemplated changing what you do for a living? Have you changed fields before? What was it like? Would you do it again? Should you have done it sooner? I’d love to hear your experience!
If you’d like to support me by making a financial contribution towards the tuition cost of the Life Coach program, I’d appreciate it. I have a 4 tier thank you gift set up because it’s not the dollar amount that counts, it’s the power that you making that contribution has. It’s an amazing feeling to know that people believe in you, that support is an indescribable feeling!
Don’t forget to check out the Kindness Challenge that will be starting in May. A 7 week challenge focusing on kindness. There is only 1 blog prompt a week so you can blog about it as often or as little as you want. Be sure to check it out and spread the word!
