My One Word: Successful
I have spent the last four years pursuing a dream: a degree in Music Therapy, and I failed. After not passing the third semester of music theory and aural skills 3 times, it was strongly suggested that I change majors. This was in spite of excellent grades in every other subject. So I took a semester off and now I’ll be returning to school as a Psychology major who happens to use a lot of music in my practice.
I also started a new business during this break, and it will allow me to do what I really want to do (pro bono counseling) as well as provide financial security for me and my husband. We’re in our sixties, and it’s already time for him to think about retiring, or at least changing directions as he’s burned out of nursing.
And, finally, I’ve been working on lifestyle changes to return my body to earlier, healthier shape! I have the desire to make all this work, even though my earlier failure still rankles when I let my guard down. I want to be SUCCESSFUL in becoming a person after God’s heart: both physically and financially healthy, helpful, and serene.
