Pretty big day today, but I waded through it. And the nice part of the day was not one, but two meaningful conversations that I found myself in and thoroughly enjoying. And totally unrelated...!
Yno what interests me and keeps me continually looking forward? Not what I do during the day. It's what I do and who I am outside of that space. The "outside of the box" places; the parts of my day that speak to those other parts of my brain. That's where I like to live and explore.
Over everything else, I value my interactions with people most. And the best ones are the one on one hey who are you and what matters to you talks. Those are my favorites. I hate isolation. I hate stale, mundane, mechanical, sterile routine. Hate it.
I considered momentarily quite a few years ago continuing with my education. Just another 4 years full time to complete the 2 yrs left on my degree and take a 2 yr post graduate art therapy program. Just 4 years, full time. And the thought of that was too much for me. How does anyone ditch life and hit school full time?! So I shelved it and went with the flow. I ended up instead learning early childhood education, and qualified myself to run a daycare (no word of a lie). Which came in handy in soooooo many ways =) none dealing with children, other than those that were grown.
But that education was in line with my interests.
I like to know what makes people tick.
I like to know why Big Kids act how they act.
I want to know who they are, why they are what they are.
And where they are.
What is their story?
Those are things I want to know.
