In my opinion [and penalty of others who would agree] KNOWLEDGE IS POWER. When you stop learning, you stop living. Your lack of knowledge places limitations on your future. I am not saying college is for everyone because for the longest I didn’t think it was for me. An educational institution is not the only place information is obtained. I will however say that it’s a great place to start. A university/college will supply you with the necessary essentials to create a better life. Whether you obtain a degree, certificate or a trade, it’s a great start to improving your future.
Despite everything on my very full plate, I decided to enroll in Japanese Learning Classes. I attend a regular classroom setting class twice a week and one-on-one time with a private tutor once a week. I felt learning Japanese would not only help assist me in my current living environment but also afford me the opportunity to speak two different languages. One item that was listed on my visualization board (http://www.pinterest.com/msjaymichelle/visualization-board/).
Learning a new language will require discipline and organization. The topic of discipline and organization were discussed in our Asia Wag Bible Study last week [next week’s blog topic]. I find myself to be a very organized person but I lack the discipline aspect at times. I can create a goal and/or schedule but the follow through is my major problem. So, with taking on this new task, I am forced to follow a strict schedule because I refuse to allow this opportunity to hind anything I already have going on. I must manage my time appropriately without neglecting my time with God, spiritual growth and my wifely duties. I want to be the ambitious woman but I want happiness first.
