Day 130: Taking It As it Comes
So as fate would have it, my mineral makeup crafting class is today and I don’t have until Monday to finish all of my research.
Which truthfully, is a godsend.
For reasons outside of my control as well as the company’s, the dates were posted wrong because of a new web hosting mixup. And somehow I saw the first date posted and not the corrected date. But you know what? Shit happens.
I believe that in life we’re given all sorts of opportunities that test our inner calm and patience, and this is just a wonderful example of that in action. I could choose to get upset, which truthfully, I did last night after studying all dy for 12 hours, but today I woke up able to let it roll off my back, like a duck in water. I want to go into the class because no matter what I’m still looking forward to it, and I really want to learn as much as I can. I know that my attitude ultimately influences the outcome of my experiences, and I don’t want to have a crappy experience, over small glitches here and there, just because my attitude is crappy. That doesn’t compute with me.
So as always, I endeavour to take life as it comes, pull my socks up and continue. Thankfully this has just given me another opportunity to realize that I don’t need to have all of my research done in the next two days, and that I can allow myself more time. The learning process should be one that you come to naturally not forced, regardless of whether you’re in formal school or on a learning curve of your own making.
So with that, I hope to report back on all of the wonderful things that I learn. I believe that on the other side of this course I will have a TON of new energy and knowledge to play with. I can’t wait!
Wish me luck!
