I saw this picture and knew immediately what it meant. 

I sat there staring at it, and it hit me, I am free- again. 

I sort of feel like my old self and it's nice. It's been a long, long, loooong time. 

It's also good to feel confident in who you are and your capabilities. 

I have enough life experience to understand what is truly important and what is not. 

I'm educated. I've been married. (Twice.) I have lived on my own since I was 18. I've lost people close to me. I've lost a job. Hell, I lost everything. Then I rebuilt my life. I've traveled. I've read many great novels. I have hobbies. I know what I believe in "faith" wise. Yeah... I'm good.

With that being said, I think I have finally found a new chapter. I have been doing some serious soul searching for the past few months. I feel like there has to be more to what I am doing. Since joining the Peace Corps right now is not in the cards, though it lights my soul on fire every time I think about it, I think I have found a program that will work for me. 

I found a Masters of Cultural Sustainability at Goucher College.  Get this: It's mostly online! 
Some of the classes are right up my ally with subjects like:
- Introduction to Cultural Documentation
- Ethnographic Methologies
- Environment, Culture, and Community
- Arts of Social Change
- Organizing Communities-  Advocacy, Activism, and Social Justice
- Oral History

Then there is a whole segment of Non Profit Management. 


It exists. 

Incredible stroke of luck finding this. 

So what is Cultural Sustainability?
Then ... what type of projects does someone do?

That's kind of a good example. :-) OR.. There is another example... I'm super excited!
This is perfect for me.

Now to figure out how  finance this little wish. ;-)

It's fabulous when you have that "aha!" moment, isn't it? It sneaks up on you. But suddenly ... yeah. You recognize yourself again. You feel good again. The baggage has suddenly become lighter, and ... wow. YAY!!!
