In addition to what follows, I regret the fact that my home internet service is acting all kinds of wonky which has prohibited me from posting. Hopefully the tech and I can get it straightened out this evening.
I don’t generally spend a lot of time on regrets or guilt. I think both have a tendency to hold you prisoner, and I’m all about freedom. Just because I don’t wallow in regrets doesn’t mean that I don’t have any – I just don’t have many and I don’t think about those that I do have often.
I regret not having given my career more thought when I was younger. It didn’t occur to younger me that simply getting a degree – or three – wasn’t enough. That I needed to concentrate on what/who I wanted to be professionally and make the moves to make it happen. I’ve always been pretty fortunate and have worked a number of good jobs and two really great ones. However, they’re just jobs. I’d like a career.
I truly wish I’d considered this as I was choosing my major and definitely would have done some things differently.
I know it’s not too late, and I’m currently researching options for attaining my PhD at little – or no – cost. (If anyone knows how to get a PhD for little $? Holler at your girl!) I’d like to teach Public Health and since most Public Health courses are graduate level, I’m gonna need another piece of paper in my hand in order to be able to do so.
I also regret not buying this purse when it was still floating around at TJ Maxx. Ah well!
