A Simple Way to Feel More Powerful

A couple weekends ago, I took my boyo, age 3, to an arts festival. Which, to be fair, was really more for me than him, but he was a good sport and seemed to enjoy looking at the wares. After that we went to lunch, and then (in a rare turn of events) he actually asked if he could go home and nap. Asking for nap? This mama was not gonna miss this opportunity! And so we headed home. 

On the way, we passed another big outdoor festival. There were lots of people and balloons and white tents. Looked fun, but I was ready to get this kid home. 

We must have seen it at the same time.

The Alternatives to Going Back to School

Having to go back to school is a big fear for a lot of people who want to change careers. 

The assumption is that because you’ve been doing the same thing for a while and have no other skills, you’d need to get another degree to make the switch to a career you’d love.

But you can’t take time away from your life to go back to school for a couple of years. And how would you afford it? Plus, you just don’t wanna. It sounds like a LOT of work, and not the kind of thing you want to be doing right now.
