Recently I have been reviewing my life and my goals and dreams and I realized that something was missing. I could never put it into words until last week, and then after an epic hike in the woods with Sweet Stella's it finally hit me.
I have to go to school; get a degree, a diploma, a certificate with MY name on it and some fancy letters at the end.
I've always struggled to find what spoke to me; bouncing from school to job to city looking for something more. I have 2 half degrees which unfortunately don't add up to a whole one. I guess you could call me the classic under achiever. When I apply myself (man, that sounds like my parents) I always succeed, but for some reason I always back away from success and throw up a smoke screen by making a drastic change in my life.
But this time it's different. Enrolling in school was a conscious, well thought out decision that I'm super excited about instead of being a distraction from something else I was trying to avoid. By sharing my new path with you only makes that decision more concrete & final.
And what will I be studying you ask? Well, I just enrolled in the Registered Holistic Nutritionist program through the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition (CSNN)! The program combines so many of my passions and interests it's kind of creepy. From science to nutrition to wellness and everything in between this course will be the perfect compliment to my lifestyle along with giving me the tools and knowledge to make even more improvements to my life as a whole. And my end goal is to be able to effectively share and communicate what I've learned in order to help others take steps to healthier & happier lives.
EEEE! I'm so excited!
So there you have it... I'm going back to school, gonna read till my brain explodes and I can't wait to start sharing all that amazing knowledge with you!
Have you gone back to school later in life? Was it by choice or necessity? And how did you handle the adjustment to becoming a student again?
