On Track

Blair starts his new job today. He was so nervous this morning, of course he wouldn't admit it but, I knew.

So, with my husband on track and doing his bit, it's my turn to get the ball rolling.

I am, as many of you know, studying Naturopathy. I have been since 1999!! Ten years FFS!! I have withdrawn from the course twice when I have had babies or fulltime jobs and it's just not been possible to handle four little kids, a full time job, life and full time correspondence study.

But now is the time for me. I am home until Sian starts school in just under three years. Until then I am studying hard out to make sure I am a qualified Naturopath as soon as possible. Then I will do a post grad year via Charles Stuart Uni in Australia to gain my Bachelor in Health Sciences (Comp Medicine).

This is all part of the real me. I have tossed this career choice back and forth a hundred times. I am an undecisive person, I struggle to stick with a decision but I am really attempting to be true to myself and, most importantly, stop with the excuses and get off my buttocks (generous that they are) and make it happen. For me.

Living true to oneself is the only way to live, or else you live a wasted life.

What is your truth?

Excellent babe!! That's really great, I know you can do it :)

My truth: Well, the last 2 years have been allll about the truth for me. Living a real life, being real. Sorting out my issues with food and everything else. Being true to yourself is the best thing you can do :)

Hope Blair has a great first day/first week!

Good on ya for getting back into your study!

My truth: I still don't really know what I want to do when I grow up. At the moment, I am just trying to be the best me I can be. I spotted the following on Skinny Latte's blog - hope she doesn't mind me using it. I am really trying to follow this:

The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz

* Be Impeccable With Your Word. Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.

* Don’t Take Anything Personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

* Don’t Make Assumptions. Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

* Always Do Your Best. Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.

PS my turn for a long comment :0)
