Spring Break and other stuff!

Well, it's Spring Break, yippeeee! I am enjoying some rest as well as catching up on some needed stuff!
I did some much needed Spring cleaning! But, my vacuum broke down on there's another thing to add on my list. Other than that, I'm studying for the GRE, yay me! It's the only requirement I have to fulfill for my application.
Also, since the end of Feb up until now, I've lost 8 lbs! woo-hoo! I'm so happy. I'm hoping to lose 22 more lbs by June. We'll see what happens! I've been feeling great and rarely tired. So, things are good and I am happy!

Have a great day!

God, I want to dream again!

Here's a song by Fireflight called "Unbreakable". It is a great song and it inspires me very much especially with all the new changes! It also ROCKS out!!! :)

I Still Can't Believe It!

Well, it's been a while, but alot has happened since then. After contemplating and weighing all the pros and cons, finances and so on....I resigned from my position as a teacher. I felt it was the right thing to do.
Just as I was becoming comfortable with my role as a teacher, I felt the gentle nudge of God that said to let go. I knew it was the right decision. My purpose had been fulfilled or is being fulfilled. It really broke my heart because teaching has been a big part of my life. I was comfortable with my role as one. But, I know God wants me to keep going, to move on....perhaps grad school, or another career. I'm following the ideas that I thought through carefully to see what doors open up.
At this point, I have taken a step out in faith. I believe God has something great in store for me. I'm excited, but at the same time I'm saying to myself, "Are you insane?!!! You are leaving a good, stable, secure job!!! What's wrong with you, woman?!!" I know I'm going to be ok, but most importantly I'll be happy because it's God's plan for my life.
I guess it's the right time to start dreaming big! :)
Love ya'll,
Laura :)
