It seems it is time for me to learn new things… a new season. Blogging is actually a motivating factor. I started blogging this past November. Through interactions with people online I am beginning to explore new ways of learning and possibly teaching. I need to grow. I want to. I do not want to think of myself as too old, or past learning new things. Turning 50+ must have something to do with it.
So even though I often feel like I’m slowly muddling my way through, I know I must push ahead, improve, be open and pursue learning more even though it makes me uncomfortable. It’s the unknown that feels uncomfortable, insecure. I don’t want to fail. I see photographing, printing, publishing, selling, as well as learning and teaching areas I need to grow in. Often one area impacts the others. I’m asking God to make me smarter and courageous and see the wonder in life around me.
So I enter another learning phase of life, seeking “what’s next?” while taking the next baby step… currently it is learning about InDesign (a computer layout program) with my friend Anneli. One thing for sure: it’s more fun to learn with/from a good friend! The hard part is getting the courage to begin….
