I’m Crafting My Life


I’m so excited!  I signed up for Amber’s Crafting My Life course.  What does Crafting My Life mean?  Here is a basic description from her website:

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.
