“I might take a grad class in the fall if I can get it approved by HR,” Dawn said one day over the summer.
“For what? Through where?” My mind was spinning with questions. I have toyed with the idea of taking more classes for a while now but never got up enough courage. It’s hard to go back to taking classes after so many years away.
But after finding out more information and researching myself I decided to give HR a try too. I filled out the paperwork and waited. And waited. And waited.
“I’d really like to start soon,” I said to my team mates at lunch on Friday. “But downtown hasn’t gotten back to me in like a month.”
Their advice… call. Don’t wait for the email.
So with shaking hands that’s what I did. And within 30 minutes I was getting the approval (and apology for taking so long). I got off the phone grinning to myself. Was I really going to do this? So I couldn’t back out I texted Dawn the exciting news and raced off home register for the class titled “Creating a Mindful Environment.”
So here’s to getting back to taking classes with a positive growth mindset.
