Well I’ve been very proactive over the last few days!
I’ve found out about some NLP courses and have approached work to see if they’ll contribute towards the cost. (They may, they may not – but at least I didn’t get a definitive no!) They could well benefit from the skills I hope I’m about to learn! This will also give me a skill I want to develop so I can then use in a few years time as a second career when I retire.
It’s all a bit daunting but exciting! A feeling that I’ve committed to doing this! I can hardly bow out now having announced my intentions to my boss at work, here on this blog, to my Life Coach…… All these people matter as I feel I’d be letting them down as well as myself if I didn’t give it my best shot now. I know all that really matters is not letting me down – but for reasons I cannot explain part of not letting me down also includes not letting down those people I’ve now told!
So I’m giving myself something to focus on – a GOAL!! Which is a major improvement on focusing on my failed marriage – which I already have a degree in – and a certificate to prove it!! (and which I do with monotonous regularity at least once or twice a day)
In the meantime I still have my photography skills to hone, my french homework (as ever!!), my lines to learn for the pantomime…… and lots of books to read so when I do do these courses I have got some groundwork done.
Oh yes and e-harmony (one of the internet dating sites I’m on) want to make me a special member of the month (or something like that) so I’ve agreed!! Well it might boost my ‘exposure’! And I might get some better possible dates – as I’ve just trawled all their recommendations and most look older than my dad!!
