On to the Next!

Last month I closed a chapter in my life.  I went from student to Graduate!!!  Yay ME!  I am very pleased with my accomplishments because I decided in 2008 that a Bachelor Degree was indeed within my grasp. 

On January 25, 2014 at 10:30am, I participated in the 102nd Walsh College Commencement and was selected as the speaker to boot!

With this new found knowledge I plan to take on the World!!!!...well not exactly, I am just plain wore out right now.  World domination will have to wait until I open the next chapter.  However, I do plan to use my talent, skills, and knowledge as an asset to help someone else. This is an open invitation to all of the companies clamouring to get an newly minted graduate to give me a call. 

Right now I am so glad to have completed my degree and will be moving forward in my personal goals.  This was no easy task.  As a parent, I worked, not one but two jobs and went to school.  Also as if I hadn't already deprived myself of enough sleep, I worked overtime and volunteered for every conceivable event I could possibly squeeze in. I also started a Collegiate Chapter of the American Marketing Association at Walsh.  With so many commitments, I think I was actually in two places at one time but no one will really confirm it, they are scared by the mere thought of it! 

This busyness has caused me to put so many that I truly love on hold, waiting for this chapter to be done.  Well now it's done and time to get on with things; to live a little; to dream more; and become the person that I have imagined.

Closing this chapter will prayerfully open up some more time to blog, write, and think.  Yesterday, I was amazed. I actually had time to polish my toes AND read a magazine.  This must be how the rich and beautiful people live...and I am well on my way.....well not exactly, starting the Walsh MBA program this Fall! What can I say I am a glutton for punishment.

As I move through this new chapter, I will be updating my blog and emailing info about events and causes that I am supporting.  Hope you will ride the roller coaster of life with me and continue walking in faith!  I know I always do! 

My Life Is Golden!
