One of my favourite sayings is 'do something today that your future self will thank you for'. Now, after all the lessons I have learnt, I keep this in the back of my mind and in the forefront of every choice I make. I honestly believe that if I stick to this mantra then I will live an authentic life of peace, love and abundance. Something I now know I deserve.
So, today I did the next right thing for me and enrolled in the Diploma of Community Services (Mental Health). It is a qualification that will give me the skills and knowledge I need to work in the wider community, whether it's in the area of DV, addiction or homelessness, family breakdown or even correctional services. It will tie together my teaching training and experience, as well as my passion for art therapy, and give me the opportunity to best use what I have learnt from my own experiences to help others.
The opportunities are endless and I am super excited to take on this new adventure that will lead to the next phase of my life!
"Choice is the most powerful tool we have. Everything boils down to choice. We exist in a field of possibilities. Every choice we make shuts an infinite number of doors and opens an infinite number of doors. At any point we can change the direction of our lives by a simple choice. It is all in our hands, our hearts, and our minds."
