She's Imagination.

First note, before my main entry:

When I started this blog, my first entry was on 10/10/10.  How did I miss writing on 11/11/11 ?  I don't know what I was thinking?  But to give myself some credit on 11/11/11 at 11:11am I was at the Plymouth Town Green, after walking in the Veterans Day Parade, listening to TAPS being played by a bugle.  I cannot listen to TAPS without tears swelling up in my eyes.  It happens each time.  I stopped trying to figure out why, and just know to have tissues on hand ready to be used.

OK, so Here goes to my Title:  SHE's IMAGINATION

Right now I am not working and searching for a new path of a career.  My imagination is endless.  I feel like I am 12 years old trying to figure out what I want to do when I grow up.  I am now 46 years young, and feel like I need to have some imagination and creativity as to how I want to proceed with my life.  I have SO many interests and passions.  I need to channel those into an energy that will enable me to find a job/career that I am really interested in pursuing.  I am Imagining myself in Graduate School working on a Masters Degree in Education Policy and Management.  I have a program in mind.  There are quite a few steps I need to take before I can start applying, however now is that time to start planning.

Let me first say that this is a big step for me, school has never been easy for me.  It has been a goal for quite some time, however getting the courage to follow what my dreams are has been my biggest hurdle.  I remember hearing Dr.Maestas ( Plymouth Superintendent) say at one of his assemblies to the kids that when you want to set a goal and accomplish it, you need to SAY SOMETHING and let the people around you know your goal. This for me has been the hard part.  It is hard because what if I fail?  Will people judge me harshly?  What if it takes longer than I anticipated?  So many variables.  That is where the courage comes into place.  I first need to IMAGINE myself accomplishing this lofty goal.  I then need to set smaller goals to go along the way.  Faith and Courage will help me Imagine.

So here I go, I have a goal in place.  My mind is set and I am using my Imagination to visualize success.
