Finally Seeing the Fruits of My Labors?

2011 was all about persevering. I knew I was going in the right direction, but all my goals felt so far away. It was a "Just keep swimming" kind of year.

2012, however, is ramping up to be a great year in a lot of ways!

I passed my first MFT exam! Yipperee! Now I am scheduled to take the next one in February. Then if I pass I will be a licensed MFT in CA which means more money, no more supervision, and the ability to teach at the graduate level and the potential to work in private practice. Its kind of a big deal.

This month, I am teaching Positive Psychology to Psychology undergraduates for the Bakersfield branch of National University. An awesome new field of research which is a lot of fun to learn about and teach.

I will have a radio show!!!! Starting in March, I will be hosting a local mental health and wellness show until May. Will it be awesome? YES it will.

In June, I will finally be finished with my Mental Health Loan Assumption Program, which is helping me eliminate student loan debt in exchange for working in a loan income clinic. So basically, they are paying me for working where I was already working.

So the next 6 months of 2012 are going to be busy and awesome. Licensure will open up a lot of new doors and hopefully lead to more financial prosperity as well so we can get out of credit card debt and experience more freedom.

Finally, hard work is paying off! Yay for 2012!


  1. Hootie Hoo! I know 2011 was really hard for you in a lot of ways. Things are finally getting rolling now!

  2. Carolyn I have thought this many times with you as we have watched you swim upstream. You are going to make it when you reach it the relief will be incredible and you will feel so strong! Only a little while more little salmon

  3. Thank you guys:). Having you guys believe in me has made all the difference for me in the last few years. If you don't give up on me, I won't, either:).

  4. I've enjoyed reading about your successes. It's a reminder to all of us to "just keep on swimming". I am a composer/pianist with extensive classical training. I wanted to invite you to visit my blogs. I am making and posting new music videos almost every week which you might enjoy.
