All is well, just busy with work and puttering around the house getting some "chores" and things done before I totally throw my life into upheaval when school starts! While I "know" my decision to go back to school is the right course for me right now...it's still really scary to me at times. I wonder things like -
- Can I even learn anymore? Seriously, I feel like my brain has no more room to absorb anything some days. I can't tell you what I had for lunch 2 days ago!
- HOW do you study? I haven't "studied" in years - a skill I will have to re-learn (see...back to the learning thing again).
- Am I going to overwhelm myself? Will I fail completely?
- Am I just too old to consider making such a big change - like career? Seriously....I'll be 49 in 13 days. I obviously won't be carrying a full course load - so who knows how old I'll be when I actually graduate!
And what is with this heat wave? Go away already! Hot, humid weather makes me crabby and it makes my hair ugly and anyone who knows me...knows - it's all about my hair! This weather is actually making me long for that 4 letter word that starts with S and ends with W. I have no use for this weather and it's killed my grass and my poor flowers - they are so pitiful right now!
I've done a little scrapping over recent weeks...not a lot though. Haven't had too much mojo.
I also find it a challenge to keep a positive attitude going - it is so easy to get sucked into "stinking thinking". It really does require daily care and feeding to keep a positive attitude going. I think I find the challenge hardest at work. There are so many negative attitudes and no matter how much you try and avoid the chatter....you hear it...people seek others out to share bad news and gossip. Attitude is contagious....sometimes I think bad attitudes are more contagious or maybe people think it's more interesting.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
