New year, new adventures

Happy 2015!

In yet another direction change, I have made the choice to try on a whole new career – Life Coach :D I actually hired one recently to help me get unstuck, and then I realized that doing what she does, fits remarkably well with who I am and what I value. Serendipitously, she even offers her own course in coaching :) My first priority, though, is to recover an income, as the dog training bit hasn’t really come together so well. Surprisingly, I have applied for a part time position at my credit union. The hours suit me, and I think it will be pleasant enough for the six months to a year that my education will take.

My New Year’s Resolution this year was a bit of a break from the past few years, where I had set intentions of the metaphysical persuasion. This year though, I have a rather concrete goal. A few years ago, I started piecing together a self-help book, comprised of my notes and learnings in personal growth and spiritual development. I aim to finish it in 2015 :) When pondering the nature of my future coaching practice, I realized that it will blend seamlessly with this book! I’ve gone ahead and titled them both the same, and I hope to launch them simultaneously :D (No spoilers yet; gotta keep those cards close.)

I’m really excited about my new journey. It’s so encouraging to finally have some clarity for a future that looks fulfilling. Still holding that hostel in my sights, but the path to it is looking much brighter :)

Course correction

divergent

Switching tracks again.

I am returning to canine education. Which means I’M LEAVING THE BLOODY HOTEL!

Part of the reason I abandoned this course previously, involved the belief that certification would be necessary for full-time work as a dog trainer, and another issue was a considerable amount of intimidation from the level of involvement demanded by said certification. As it turns out, I just got offered full time work as a dog trainer without that particular credential, after all!

I still intend to get me a hostel, and although I’m departing the hospitality biz, this new path will be more enjoyable, more flexible, and more lucrative, which means that I may end up more likely to acquire a mortgage with which to procure the requisite real estate to get that communal lodging venture started.

So… Yay :D Pretty excited. Transition sucks a little. I am not sure how long it will take for me to reach full-time status; somewhere between a few weeks and a couple months. Turns out, when you have plans to leave your current job that you dislike, it becomes even more intolerable. That and the indefinite time-frame is a tad frustrating, but the bright future of bold possibilities is pretty thrilling.

Looking forward to another new twist in my grand adventure!
