Back To School

Even though it’s been a while since I’ve gone “back to school,” this time of year is a great time for new beginnings. Many teachers say to the class on the first day, “You have a clean slate.”

It’s another kind of new year, a time to revamp your life. Today I’m buying a shiny new notebook and marabou pen, and I’m going to begin my new chapter.

It takes a lot of courage to go in your own direction and separate from the pack, to really go after your dreams, especially if you’re clueless about how to get there (me). But if there’s a will, there’s a way, and I’m determined to carve out the life I really want for myself and not what I “should” do, what’s “normal,” or what’s “practical.”

When are we supposed to go after what we really want? When we go through the system of corporate America and (hope to) retire? That’s not soon enough for me. I’m disillusioned. It doesn’t work like that anymore.

There is only one “right” way to live your life: The way that is right for you.

The time is now. What do you want out of this life, out of your life? What are you waiting for? Go get it.
