Moving Forward

Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today?” - Mary Manin Morrissey

What would you like to let go of?

New Directions

Women Looking at MapOn Wednesday, I had my first senior seminar class – and as a result, this blog is going to be going in a new direction for awhile.

In order to pass this class, I have to start blogging. As everyone knows, I’m already a blogger, so this wasn’t exactly a new foray for me. However, the class required for each student to physically create a new blog and since I had an existing one with an established presence, I didn’t really want to have to make another. I spoke with my teacher and I can use this one (yay!) to fulfill the requirement. However, there are some guidelines I need to follow.

Some posts have to be in relation to my senior project and/or portfolio pieces. I also have to offer my resume (check).

So, let’s see: I have a blog, I have post guidelines, and I have a direction. All in all – it works out.

Factor in my independent study work (also blog posts to be put up here) and I’ve got a ton of great things coming your way. :)

In between my musings and rantings, expect to see more postings on things related to me professionally and academically. And hey – if you’ve got a great idea for something you’d like to read about, let me know. I’m always open to suggestions and queries :)

Thanks and have a lovely day,

This Is What You Should Be Doing Right Now :)

The Eight Principles of Fun

Still Learning

Today, I was asked a question. I didn’t know the answer.

This moment is an example of how I need to remember that I don’t know everything and still have plenty to learn. I should be mindful of the fact that every day, I am a student. There are things I don’t know but could if I set my mind to it.

My senior year of college has been tough. Brutal, in fact. The ability for me to open my brain to so many new concepts and information has made it turn into gelatin from time to time….and the best part about it is that it’s okay.

It’s okay if I don’t know all the answers. Not knowing reminds me that I’ve still got a ways to go.

And the thought of having more to learn just makes me smile :)


I’ve moved!

I’m working on setting up the new digs at :)
