Cabo Here I Come.....

Well after much thought and planning, we finally booked our winter/spring vacation! We are going to Cabo San Lucas at the end of March. I am so excited, I have been to Mexico before but never to Cabo. I look forward to relaxing by the pool with my family. I am hoping that the beautiful surroundings will inspire me!

I am a 43 year old wife and mother of 2 children 18 and 16. I have reached a time in my life where I dont feel my purpose. I say feel rather than see, I see my purpose I am a mother, wife, employee...however my kids are older and do not need me quiet as much as they use too, my husband and I have been married over twenty years we have fallen into a routine, work....I have had this job for 10 years, nothing much has changed. I need to feel my purpose!

A few of the girls I work with (young 20 something girls) are looking to further their education and go back to school to get a degree, both are going to get their LPN license. I was jealous...I know I could go to school and do the same, but I am 43 do I really want to become a nurse in my mid 40's and then have a student loan to pay off when I am done!!! So I took a hard look at what I wanted to do...

I am a full time Office Manager, and I design jewelry in my spare time, I thought what could I do to improve either of these jobs. I looked into classes at a local community college. I found non-credit on-line courses...continuing education courses, a 6 week course for $99. I thought PERFECT! There was so many to choose from...I focused in on what I could do to improve my jewelry business. They had everything from Marketing to Web Design, to Creative Writing. Well after much investigating I have enrolled in the class of "Marketing your Online Business" I start Feb. 17th. I am very excited and very hopefull that I will finally feel my purpose.
