Day Twelve - Pondering the next year
Friday, March 12, 2010
Today is pouring rain here in Southern Florida. A good day to work on my goals (long term, mid term and short term).
I am thinking about taking a sabbatical from the work world (I am not working now but was about to launch a job search) and spend a year just focusing on getting healthy and volunteering somewhere.
In this economy there are few jobs to be had anyway and rather than just be another desperate job candidate, I could take a volunteer job that uses my skills or teaches me new skills. I am thinking that it would be a change of pace for me and would allow me to give back to society. I could use this down economy for good purposes. At the end of the year, I would be transformed physically, mentally and emotionally and could add a year of community service to my resume.
Of course, I would have to live frugally in order to do this. That would be another lesson. I feel excited at the possibility of launching this new goal.
