Is this a mid life crisis?
Tuesday, December 06, 2011
So it's been a bit crazy in my world lately.
I was stressed to the max leading up to a very milestone birthday in November (hint - it starts with a "5" and then a "0"). Why do we get so hung up on numbers? Well, I do, it seems. I was not feeling great leading up to the big day.
I had also been contacted by a company, offered a job that I would really like - but had decided that it was too risky to take (commission). Hmm - only one source of income coming in - and that's me - so was quite down that it was not going to work out.
Well, they called me back and offered me a bit of salary plus the commission! Hmm - sounded like it might be doable.
So after a lot of soul searching - and an inspirational message from my brother - I pulled up my socks and decided to take the risk. Yikes.
For the past 3 weeks, I've plunged back into the "learning" mode - taking a course (on-line), every night, to get my mutual funds broker license. What? Me? In Finance? Sales - I know - but this is a whole new world for me!
Between working full time, trying to fit at least a bit of exercise in - and paying some kind of attention to my son - plus 3 - 4 hours of studying a night, I'm a pooped pup!!!
I write my exam on the 18th of December - and as long as I pass (everyone - cross your fingers!!!) - I'll be starting the new year off with a brand new job!
I am so excited -- and nervous. I've re-set my brain onto "absorb" and have been trying to wrap my head around completely new terms, etc.
So - I may be a bit scarce for the next week or so - but once I finish this - I'll be back to spend time with all my Spark Friends - and to get back to some kind of normalcy!!!
Love you all - and miss you!
