Thinking Thursday – What Makes You Proud Today?

I am tired, and brain-weary. I have a stack of books to sell back, a smaller stack to keep and organize, and pages upon pages of notes to recycle/toss/shred/something.

The term is done.  The last two classes only await the final grades – all papers, discussion boards, etc are turned in.  These are the last two classes of the program to earn my Masters’ Degree in Human Services Counseling, Marriage & Family.


(Today I also applied to two different jobs and paid bills.  It’s been a busy morning.)

I feel kind of numb inside, though, you know?  I mean, it’s been full throttle moving forward, study study study, write write write…  I completed a really big goal, and accomplished something no one in my immediate family has done before.

But now it’s done, and I am in a similar position as what I was in before – applying for jobs and unsure of what the future holds.

I’m really tired of being “between”.  And I guess that’s what this blog is all about, finding out where I’m coming from and seeking the open door at the end of the hallway.  Mostly, I am ok with this.  Today, I am kind of…done.

I will add that I am really proud that I finished this challenge, that I did well, and that I learned a lot.  For that reason, today’s question allows you to toot your own horn:

What are you proud of, today?

Let’s celebrate, together.  For those things that are finished and fulfilled, for those feelings that are strong, or muddled – let’s celebrate.

Piles Upon Piles....

Piles Upon Piles….
