Never give up.
Say “Not YET!”
Search for other avenues.
Set a goal.
Find like-minded friends to fuel your passion.
You may find that your continued growth requires new ideas that match your passion.
It may take a plan – savings or otherwise. It may require you to be “Brave” (#OneLittleWord) and travel alone knowing that by the end of the week you will have 1500 new friends!
It’s all about priorities
Being a life long learner
Today marks the 5th summer in a row that I will attend #TCRWP Writing and Reading Institutes. Exciting summers where I have grown as a writer, humbled by the craft of published authors, soaking in every morsel of knowledge about writing . . . and reading . . . and creating AVID readers and writers.
Yes, lucky me!
Lucky me that I have always maintained a “summer” job so that I could “indulge” my learning habit!
I have not been given one single cent to pay my expenses in 5 years X 2 institutes. (Yes, I have asked and I have been turned down.) But YET the learning is so important to me that I have attended on my own in order to learn and grow professionally.
Waiting for someone else to fund my learning was an impossibility. (I would still be waiting!) Attending and paying for it myself was and still is my possibility and tomorrow will bring my 5th consecutive POSSIBILITY to life!
From impossibility to possibility . . . Teachers College Reading and Writing August Institutes!
What actions do you take to move from impossibility to possibility?
What dream do you intend to make a reality?
