I am calmly nervous (?) about this new phase of my life! I am excited to take on some new adventures yet I don’t want to sabotage myself. I always hear my dad’s and mom’s voices in my head- questioning my choices, not wanting me to take any unnecessary chances in my life. Especially in the financial arena. Unfortunately, I didn’t always end up on the top of some of those choices but I really don’t think I would take anything back. Divorce really hurt me – I paid him way too much- but would I change any of that? Only if I could make it work. I’d still rather be me giving the cash than him taking it. Anyway… how quickly I ramble!
I am taking on a new adventure! 25 years ago, I was a travel agent for about 2 years before I was convinced to return to teaching. I loved the travel job and industry but there was NO money in it at that time and I needed to support myself. So I returned to education (known for it’s money, LOL, so misguided!!)! After 3 years in the Boston Public School system, I moved to Las Vegas and hooked up with Clark County School District, where I taught for 25 years. I recently retired- and I mean recent- still waiting for that first check!
In a little under 3 weeks, I will be attending tour management school in San Francisco. I am very excited and completely unsure! I want to make a go of it in the business but I don’t know how much time I want to reasonably invest. Of course I want the travel perks but you do have to work to get them. I love the idea of the school and 2 weeks of fun in Frisco, but I am also terrified of the financial investment and being a novice in an industry again! It won’t be the first time I just leap off the cliff and take a chance! Hopefully, I am smart enough and wise enough to make a go of it and it won’t be a complete disaster. But if it is, oh well, life is about living! I’ll keep you posted.
