The thought of starting a blog has entered my mind before, although I had a tough time getting my head around what I might write about. As I am beginning a new program of study at the age of forty-three – Doctor of Science in Holistic Nutrition – it occurred to me that the products of much my coursework may be of great interest to those who want to learn more about nutrition and natural health. That is yet to be seen!
It also occurred to me that the journey of a midlife career change, finding purpose and taking on new challenges might be of interest to some. In my neophyte status with social media, I did not recognize the power of community that can be developed in the virtual world. I read in amazement a young man’s story of his struggle with weight loss and the support and accountability that his followers on Twitter provided. As I am embarking on my new journey in education, I realized that I could find support and accountability as well through social media. I may just find a few like minded souls who want to journey with me through the coursework on holistic nutrition without having to read the entire books or write the papers.
I welcome your support in any way as I go through this next two years of coursework. Hopefully we will all learn something along the way.
