Okay, after much deliberation and time I think I finally have a really good idea what I want to be when I grow up.
I've said for a few years now that I want to be a life coach, but that has always seemed so broad and I never knew exactly where to start. Now I think I'm sure I want to continue on that path, but I've discovered a branch of psychology that seems to be perfectly in sync with me. Positive Psychology was coined in 1998, but I'm just now learning about it. I love it!! I have a BS in Psychology with a minor in Philosophy, I'm an extremely optimistic person, I strongly believe in the power of spirituality and positive thought, I'm always rooting for people to discover their strenghts and play off of them...this is a lot of what Positive Psychology is all about!!
I've been wanting to go back to school, but I never knew exactly what for. I think this is it. I'm currently seeking out positions for advising at some online universities which pay comparable to what I'm making now. With a job at a university, I will get my tuition 100% reimbursed, which answers my financial question of "how the hell can I afford this when I'm living paycheck to paycheck?"
It's all falling into place, I just have to get one of these positions. Resume was updated and submitted to follow the job description, now I just need to get the interview...let's go resume!!! Next step will be the interview, so I can continue to prepare for that by working on my STAR format, and pinning down the perfect answers to potential questions (thank you HR background). Oh, and darn, guess I get to go shopping for a new rock star suit to interview in. I'm really excited about this, but I need to get the interview first!!
Wish me luck!!!
