~I have finally completed my 12 week business program at the University of Victoria. It’s been an incredible journey and extremely intense to say the least. With a final exam every week and homework every night, my blog posts have yet again been few and far between.
But now another phase of life is completed. Now for the next step. To make my world what I want it to be.
I’m feeling a bit nervous to go back out into the real world and everyone keeps asking me what I am going to do now that I have a certificate in business.
In all honesty, I have no idea.
I do however know exactly what I want to do. I want to write and travel the world and somehow make those two things go together. Whatever the next step is, I’m actually not quite sure where it’s going to take me. I have always ended up answering phones, greeting people and filing at a reception desk and I would like to try to do something completely different. I’ve always defaulted to working in a dental office because that’s really the only field I’m experienced in. But now I want to do something different, exciting and new! 🙂
And since nothing is written in stone, I need to build up the confidence to try something I’ve never tried before. I can now say I have extra abilities and skills I didn’t have before.
I’m done looking for postings on Craigslist and I’m ready to start networking through people who are doing what I want to be doing. I would love to get into a publication where I can learn the ins and outs of the writing industry. I want to know what it’s like to work directly with an Editor.
So I’ve revamped my resumé and I’m working on making my portfolio look perfect. It’s never to late to change something and I guess that’s exactly what I did. I suppose I just need to dive right into the job search as soon as possible and put myself out there.
I refuse to give up.
I refuse to do something I don’t love thoroughly.
I vow to myself I will not stop searching until I find the perfect job. I may not be an extraordinary writer but I am willing to follow my dream as far as I can.
“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.

Whoo Graduation!! 😀 Here we go!
One thought on “Another Phase of Life Completed~Now for the next step”
Just take a step into the cold waters of fear,it will lead you to the next,just begin even if it’s not what you want to begin with
