And So It Begins…
I took care of my work e-mail before I started this. Actually, I was writing a long overdue acknowledgement message to the members of my office. They really do work hard and I tell them how much I appreciate them and their efforts on a regular basis, but I wanted to do so now, since I’m taking this time off to do the Advanced course of PD, which starts today. I’m rather glad that I did it and I gave some special acknowledgements to Val, Laurie and Lynda. They really are my support at work and I would be totally swamped and lost without them. I recognize that and appreciate them wholly.
So, how do I feel about beginning the Advanced course this morning? Well, I’m a little anxious (in a good way, mind you) to see what’s in store for us. I figure if the Basic was just the beginning and that was mind-boggling in what was created for me, the Advanced is just going to be phenomenal and way out there! But the one thing I’m not is afraid. Fear isn’t helping me do what I want and instead it hinders me. The things I want to do are really fabulous and courageous things — do the book thing, cut my own music CD, start my own ramen shop, have exactly 2 restaurants and one club in my ownership… and that’s just the beginning! I want to travel the world, see all kinds of exotic places and take do photography in outlandish ways. I want to live life to the fullest. Living life fully requires no fear (the obvious exceptions being something like “a tiger is staring at you and salivating” :D), but I don’t want to hold myself back. Not at all. I have so much to offer the world, and I may be doing it one thing at a time for a little while, but I’m doing it.
What happens today will be very interesting! I’m open to it.
