Sometimes, when we try new things, we unwittingly realize that particular choice probably wasn’t the best for the long-term. It may be a great deal or a wonderful opportunity, but that doesn’t mean it’s the path for you in the long run. Couple that with the process of healing, and you find things out about yourself very quickly.
I quit grad school.
Yup! I quit. Last Sunday night. The multiple levels of stress washed away like a river. I walked away. I was giddy and smiley, but more importantly, I was more at peace with myself.
Even though the tuition was free and there could be benefits from having a master’s degree. I am OK with it. The few classes I took served their purpose as a way to get my mind off of the upheaval life threw at me at the beginning of the year.
I am still learning about what makes me happy. I think it’s a constant evolution throughout different stages of life, but I learned being a maker is vital to my creative spirit. I had to step back from my business while shuffling through homework, work, single-mom life and caretaker, and the whole time something was missing.
Well, it won’t be missing anymore.
The garage has been cleaned and rearranged. I got rid of more things that were impeding my creativity and made myself a new space to work from.
Fuck yeah… am I excited. This afternoon will be the first I’ve done work since the spring. The possibilities are endless.
