Today’s Writing Prompt:
Abide in the simple and noble regions of thy life, obey thy heart. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Write down your top three dreams. Now write down what’s holding you back from them.
1) I’d like to work in computers and related technology.
2) I’d like to be a published writer, either of words or music.
3) I’d like to move somewhere really cool, like New Zealand.
What’s holding me back is things I can do myself. To work in an IT field, I really need to learn more and get in to some specific training. I guess after finishing college and doing an additional year of teacher training that I had to pay for, I’m gun-shy on any training I have to pay for. However, if this new job I’m working on comes through, they may help pay for this training.
Being a published writer is a matter of spending the time. I haven’t given the time to it yet. However, by blogging, I’m trying to practice and get better at this writing.
Moving somewhere really cool takes building up credentials. Immigration outfits that aren’t the United States are very picky in who they let in their borders. I have to match up to that picture they want. The cool thing is that the IT experience should help me build those credentials.
