Midway through December, I started fleshing out what I want to accomplish in 2013 and made some tough decisions. I was supposed to have taken two other courses in November, another five through May and that is only the first half of the year. The courses would cost me upwards of $4,000 plus travel costs to Vancouver where they are offered.
I have had to accept the fact that I will not be taking any of them. I cannot afford them which leaves me quite disappointed. I am still holding out hope but most likely I will only be taking courses I can audit.
For 2013, I have decided to focus on mastering the skills that I have already fronted the costs for:
- Crystal Healing
- Touch for Health
- Weight Loss, Weight Loss, Weight Loss
- Ice Skating
- Learning more about Anatomy and Physiology
I am confident that in 2013 I will reach my Fitness and Weight Loss goals which includes changes to my diet and increased outdoor activities. I am looking forward to getting back into fishing, geocaching, ice skating, walking and finally running!
I am hoping that by gaining confidence and experience with the skills and tools I have already acquired, it will allow me to increase my income as a Practitioner, Photographer and Blogger. Thus far, I have made about 50 cents from my blogging!
Part of what took me so long to move on from my tech career, was finances. I kept telling myself that I had to pay off my first career before I could start on a second. The good thing is that I had a lot of transferable skills that I am applying as an Office Manager in a Health and Wellness Centre which has gotten my foot in the door of the industry. Now I need to work on building up a practice as a practitioner. The downside to having changed careers is that I currently make less then 25% of what I used to. But I am hopeful that someday I will eventually surpass what I was making as a geek.
I really look forward to properly fleshing out, stating my goals and doing the work necessary to manifest them. All of which I will blog about during 2013!
