It seems like I got side-tracked off of my quest to become a more whole person and “discover the very best in myself.” So here we go, getting back on track with #5, half way there.
Question 5: What’s the next step?
In terms of my career, I think I’ve already tackled many of the “next steps.” I put my notice in at work, I’m preparing them for the hiring/transition process by endlessly writing procedures, and I’m getting a few things in order if my life heads me in one of the two possible directions. Right now I’m in a waiting game, just waiting for an email asking me to interview – or rejecting me. Until that happens, I can’t clearly make a decision about going back to school. Although I think I would be very happy becoming a school counselor in the future, I don’t think I would be able to turn this other job down if it is a real option for me.
In terms of some person things, the next step is something I’m also already working on. I’ve managed to avoid dealing with something for the last 4-5 years, and it’s been getting in my way. I’ve finally realized that I need to face it head on or else I won’t be able to move forward.
