As I write this final journey I’m a little sad it’s ending, however I realize it’s really just the beginning.I have learned how to manage my time better. I have also learned to be more mindful of what is urgent, important and not important. I feel like I have more time now for my family and myself. Thank you Anne for going though this journey with me! I appreciate your advice and words of wisdom along the way. I feel better than I have in a long time!

I am so empowered right now by the tools I have acquired along my journey that I am comfortable, finally, with who I am professionally and personally. I want to keep on my journey and see where it takes me next. I am excited to go to work and don’t press the “snooze” button every 10 minutes. I have found a new sense of fulfillment and am so excited about the things I have learned. Thank you for this course, it truly saved my life.

I so enjoyed this course and learned valuable life skills from it. I thank you so much. More than that however, I always felt like you got the heart of what I was trying to say. You are a kindred spirit and I will miss sharing insights with you and learning from your responses.

Anne, Thank you SO much! I really appreciated and enjoyed reading your comments. I learned from them too and laughed...I like how it felt like we were talking through them. I loved your idea of putting my worries in a God bag ( I am for sure doing that) I hope to take what you have taught me throughout my life and for sure with me next year as I enter the classroom again!
