Challenge the mind to thought provoking abilities to succeed.
Motivated to change and learn and grow. Stepping out and looking at the edge of change with in my own mind and heart.


I am changing my way of looking at life my life. It is not what someone can do for me but what can I do for myself.
How can I change me!
Stepping out of my looking glass answers my own troubling question about my life and future.
When I quit my job my choices became slim in my mind. At my age a change in careers was a choice I made. But what avenue would I pursue?
There is a big world out there and as a pre-retiree it was a choice that in my mind had limitations. Those limitations were as to my experience.
Venturing out to look at where my next job could be it became clear I had very few options as Hawaii and the tourist industry is a major factor in my choices to get meaningful employment.
This did not hamper my quest.
As a woman that has built her life as a mother, looking for a job became troublesome. So step out of my box and see there are many opportunities out there if one is willing to seek it.

My life choices

I could sit back and wait for the right opportunity to come my way ( or not ).
What choices I make and my dedication to learn something new.
The mind is an awesome thing you see. You are limited only by your thinking.
Anyone can learn anything if you put your mind to it and just do it.
It takes the willingness to learn.
So now as I am learning a new profession I grow.

Good advice in your article. Many of the abilities you have developed are gold. Finding how they may be applied is easier when you ask for help. I have found myself over looking many opportunities because as an individual I tend to concentrate on now; only looking out and away from myself. I step outside and look back through the opinions of honest friends. I just started working with a company that pools the talent of professionals and got an assignment four days after joining.

Positive thinking and never hesitate to ask around, Sandralee. When one door closes, there are many ready to open. Sometimes, we have to kick open them! siva

Good for you! Some years back it was hard to (basically) start over. I am still my kids mother but, they are now adults and living their lives, so what do I now do. Not a thing wrong with change. Thank you for sharing.:)
