Today was a very exciting day. Not because I got a big job promotion, or got married, or had a baby or any other major life changing milestones but it was exciting. I accomplished something I never thought I could. Most of us have something we really want to do in life but are afraid to take that leap. Afraid to fail, afraid to succeed. Well I leaped and I am so glad I did. I decided I wanted to learn a new set of job skills. I was not required to learn them for my current job but I knew if I did a whole new world would open. I have MS and focus is a major struggle for me. Oftentimes I start projects a don’t finish. I give up because it takes me longer than most and I loose interest and I struggle with retention. Well last night it happened. My world opened up in two ways. My new skill set earned me acknowledgment from my boss and also a contract with someone else. I decided I would teach my self this new skill at my own pace in my own time. I truly didn’t expect to accomplish it because of past experience, (aopinionatedman had a little to do with that). For some reason I stuck with it and the feeling I have just for seeing that goal to fruition is amazing. A whole new world has open up and I am ready to conquer it.
Take that leap!
I have to thank my husband for suffering through this process with me. He is my motivation, my rock!
