Joining in again for Wishcasting Wednesday! This week, over at http://www.jamieridlerstudios.ca, Jamie asks "What do you wish to do one day?"
As usual, Jamie asks things that I am usually thinking about. This weeks question is pretty pertinent in my life right now. Last Wednesday, I went to work only to find out that I got laid off. This is the first time anything like this has ever happened to me in the 20 years since I have been out of high school. I am a social worker and really believed that I was safe from cuts like this.
Even though this was only a part time job, it made a huge difference to my family. I am trying to think of things in a more positive light! I am able to get to be home for dinner with my family. I am able to not have to feel rushed getting things ready for when my husband comes home. I am able to get unemployment so I can actually have some income coming in to help with our finances!
The other positive thing that I am trying to think about truly relates to this week's prompt. I am trying to decide just what it is that I really want to do with my life! I have a great husband and three great kids, but what do I want to do with my professional life? How can I use my education in a more out of the box way? I am thinking that I really do want to do something with art therapy, or even do something less clinical, but still something related to art/creating and how it can be therapeutic. I've written about this before, and I still think that this is something that I really want to do one day. I would love to be part of a community that truly believes in the mind/body/spirit, not just one area. I think that my social work career and my love of creating can be mixed to truly help care for ones mind, body and spirit. I would love to be my own boss one day and again be part of a community that truly looks at the whole person, not just parts of a person! Oh, and I want to learn to use herbs and aroma therapy as part of my career too! I think herbs, essential oils and creativity can all work together to help someone have a more balanced life!
