Word for 2018: Forward

January 5th, 2018 at 11:26 am

My word for 2018 is going to be "Forward" as in direction and momentum.

I'm guilty of stagnation and am just plain tired of feeling that I'm carrying heavy things. I can't even say that I want simple because my attachments, finances, life, and future is complicated.

Truth is that I perseverate, and stagnate, and remuninate. And all the awareness in the world isn't going to change that without action.

I will be able to finish up a graduate certificate in Organizational Behavior in 20 weeks (two ten-week quarters). I offically signed up for two classes and can add the second weekend-seminar for February. I have to move past the regrets that I spent time and money at a religious institution that qualified me to do nothing. A set of circumstances prevented me from petition for a grandfather clause under administration that changed, and in the scheme of things, my life was affected negatively far less than others that I know. And the reality is that I am too liberal some religious settings and not conservative enough for others. Bitter pill to swallow and lesson learned, but according to a career counselor, I should be marketable at the completion of this.

Money-wise, I will just try to continue to make wise financial choices and try to get ahead slowly. Can't do much other than that.

Happy 2018 to everyone.

    20 weeks to certification sounds great...and you've already signed up-- great forward action! Hopefully, what you learned and thought about in previous classes will turn out to be useful someday.
    Happy 2018 to you!
