Well at last I can write something positive. It’s not life changing but it’s a step, a small one agreed, but I can finally say I have put that foot forward into my future and taken a step. And it happened at 7.30am this morning.
What have I done? I have signed up for a CBT course. OK I said it wasn’t life changing but at 57 learning anything new will be a challenge. I can’t remember the last time I did anything that stretched me mentally. I learn new things at work all the time, but that is like a gentle learning.
This is going to be something totally new to me, but something I have been interested in for some time. To be honest I am doing it in the hope I can help a family member, but at the end, if I pass,I actually get a certificate and can practise it. That means, I get to learn a skill that I can earn money by using it. I don’t expect to earn a fortune, but it could be the start of working for myself rather than someone else.
I have always been a people person, people seem to be drawn to me when they have problems and want my advice. I wonder if I have finally found my vocation?
Right let’s not run before I can walk. I first need to start doing the hard work, finding the time in my already busy life to fit this in. And then the real challenge, how much I can remember.
I’m hoping as it’s something I’m interested in I will pick it up OK.
So there you have it, my first really positive blog 😀 After a week of negatives (my son is in hospital and so is his girlfriend) I am moving forward in 2017.
So maybe you can too? Go on, find a course you are interested in, even if you think it might not be the most useful thing for moving your life forward. If you are learning something new it will make you feel happier and more positive. Believe me 😀
