Six-Word Saturday #84

Posted on: April 7, 2017


Sharing my new adventures with you

In November, I shared the news that I had resigned from my teaching career of 2005-2017. In the aftermath, I started a new job and took on marketing studies and … essentially begin to reinvent myself. I said at the time, “What lays ahead besides my new job and my classes, I have no idea.” In a sense, I still don’t know. Life these days is very much about a journey of discovery. At the time, I promised to keep you updated on my life.

What follows are the highlights of my life since November. Perhaps the most important is that I still love my job as a church administrative assistant. In fact, I just recently began writing my own articles for our publications. For a time, I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to continue with my volunteer activities. Just in case, I decided to become more focused in my work, and this led to my interest in becoming a cat behavior consultant. Over all, my biggest accomplishment was finishing a year-long journalism course! The course encouraged me to explore new types of writing, with one result being two regular local columns.

Over the next few Six-Word Saturday posts, I’ll provide more details to the changes in my life. Check out other reader posts at a new SWS home: Travel with Intent.

Well done on completing the course, and how interesting about cat behaviour consultancy . . .

Doing what you love is key. Many work in jobs they hate and feel trapped. I’m glad you set yourself free to do what you want.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

My health and happiness level have improved greatly since the fall! Enjoy your weekend. 🙂

Summer Reviews

Books can take connect us with strangers, take us to unique places, and introduce us to new ideas. They can also offer hope in a chaotic world. And so I must share what I read!

Each week, I’ll introduce you to religious books, Advanced Reader Copies, animal books, or diversity books. Some I’ll review as singles and others as part of round-ups. Just ahead, there will be reviews of:
