Monday, Newday



…I hope you all had a super fantastic weekend!!!  I didn’t really do too much, but at 5am Saturday morning, I woke up and had this almost epiphany like experience.  I had just taken a career course all last week as I had mentioned, and all of everything that I had learned about myself just kind of came together and made sense, if you will, and I felt insanely happy and clear headed.  I came to the conclusion that this one career I am choosing is going to incorporate all that I love.  I grew to learn “summed up” that I am a “Creative Humanitarian that is obsessed with Animals”, in my own words..hehe.

…I am going to take a Community/Social Services course that will put me in a helping and counselling position with possibly troubled youth.  I am going to use Animal Therapy & Art/Photography Therapy to help people!!!!  I learned that I need to be doing something to make a difference to make me feel complete and satisfied within a job and my life.  I was really surprised by this outcome as a lot of jobs I’ve had in the past, almost made me not like people in general and I ran to animals.  I have lots of experiences in my life that I can relate to these kids…quite a few friends that died from hard drugs,are living on the streets or have diseases because of the drugs.  I’ve dealt with suicides all around me and was majorly bullied as a child etc,etc.  I think with this life experience and the course I’ll take, I will be able to help some people and it will give me more of a purpose.  Yay for finally knowing!!!

DUDE!!! you are on your way!

i am so glad you figured out what you want to do, and it sounds like you will be PERFECT at it. it really does. forgive my cheeseballish-ness, but i am so happy for you and so proud of you! this is rad!!! and you will be able to help so many, and it might be really hard work, but you will make a difference. and how many people can say THAT about their jobs?! not many!


p.s. anvil show was fun. lead singer (lips) was VERY enthusiastic and hilarious. they don't have the best lyrics (AT ALL), but they really play well for that genre and they put on a pretty good show. :) one of the opening bands was rather cool and young and highly charismatic, so that was fun, too. :)

Good on you. I wish I knew what I wanted to do when I grow up. I've spent the last 52 years working out what I don't want to do.

Lovely lovely post and thank you so much for sharing - say hi to those bundles of furry love for me won't you! XO
