Back to School

I decided to go back to school in my forties. I have always had an interest in the Wellness field but it wasn’t something that I decided to take action upon until 2 years ago. My degree is a Bachelor of Science and my career, up until 3 years ago, was in the financial industry. But now I am a certified Cancer Coach and almost an Holistic Nutritionist!. Good golly! So now the questions start. What am I going to do with my training? Who am I trying to reach? Well my awe inspiring answer is “ I don’t know yet. I’m still trying to figure things out”. And to be perfectly honest, I am just fine with that for now and here is why. I feel that at this point in my life I have a greater sense of who I am and what I can accomplish than in my twenties when I was just embarking on my life of independence. I don’t have the time constraints of young mothers. That pressure is off. My kids are older and for the most part, self-sufficient. I have already made LOTS of mistake and am the wiser for them. And I have nothing to prove. I am not sorry for feeding my Wellness passion on the second go round. I had different passions earlier on. I don’t feel that any of my time has been wasted. This is meant for me now and I’m settled enough in my own skin to let things come to me. I will continue to endeavour to learn and to see where the road leads me. My hope is to make a difference in the world of Wellness and Cancer Care. But if this path leads me straight to my own front door I’m good with that too.
