As the New Year approaches, I am filled with a sense of excitement for my future. Surprisingly, I am also doing a bit of grieving. I know it's normal. While I am not questioning my decision to go back to school and embark on this new path, I know that I am letting go of some old goals and dreams.
The really cool thing is I will always be a writer. No matter whether I work at the magazine where I am employed or not, I will always have the skill set to be a writer. I have to say, this writing gig with The New Social Worker Online is a real gift for me. I can still do what I love and gear it toward my new dreams and goals.
So, as I cut my hours at my day job where I am an editor, I will add hours toward getting my Masters in social work. And I will write for this magazine. Sounds like a win-win.
I look forward to hearing from you as I stay the course. I'd love to hear about your dreams and hopes.
I wish you the happiest of New Years.
