Last Friday morning, after getting some great advise from Tira and support from Matthias, I contacted the course instructor, switched my plane ticket and I am now traveling to APU earlier for the Strengths Quest elective course. I feel at peace and excited about taking this course. I was a little stressed because I was trying to get into a counseling course at Sonoma State or SFSU to use as my elective for my program, but never heard back from them. Then I realized, it was not meant to happen.
Last summer, I took the instrument as part of another course and fell in love with the idea of focusing and finding ways to use your own and others strengths. I mention in my About section my top 5 strengths. Finding what you are good at is awesome. Finding out what you are really great at..fun and challenging. I look forward to reporting back on how this elective course will help me use my top 5 strengths “Responsibility, Significance, Maximizer, Arranger and Communication” and encourage others to do the same. My strengths motivate me and drive me nuts at the same time!
To my co-hort ladies! I’m looking forward to seeing all 7 of us strong, smart, sexy and natural at Student Affairs CSA summer track APU class of 2008. Yahoo! 3rd years!
