Crafting my Life is a 12 week online course about living with intention. During the class we figure out what we really want to be when we grow up, and then take steps to make that a reality. Crafting your life is about taking stock, finding your bliss, slaying your dragons, managing your money and learning a lot about yourself. It is also about finding support and community in like-minded people.
This is exactly what I’m looking for right now. Living with intention? That’s been on my radar for a while. What we really want to be when we grow up? Now that’s a blog post and a half, but it also mirrors the conversation I had with my book club last night. Taking stock, slaying your dragons (i.e. confronting negativity), managing money, and learning a lot about yourself? All things that I am interested in right now.
The first week’s topic is “Taking Stock.” I’m hoping to set aside a couple hours a week for this course and really get some good time to evaluate where I am and what I want for my life in the next five years.
About six and a half years ago, I was interviewing for a class I wanted to take, and the interviewer asked me, “What do you want for your life in 5 years?” I answered immediately, “I want to be a mom.” At the time it never occurred to me that there would be an answer for the time that co-existed with my time as a mom. That was it. That was my goal and my destination. Now that I’m there, and loving where I’m at, I am looking for something that continues my journey.
