Mapping out life

I've had a thought.

As I've registered for classes to complete my BS in English it's interesting what has been available to me, and I get the sense that there is divine hand in what may seem like a limited number of options.

I've registered for a Philosophy class in Ethics and Values, a physical science class Life in the Universe, Intermediate Poetry, Fitness for Life, and Literature by Women. You may not recognize it as I do, but it is a semester in affirming femininity, which is what I need.

I need empowerment.

I need to define and acknowledge the feminine and her capabilities for myself. I've felt the drive to do this for many months now.

I need to claim the right to owning my own beliefs and spiritual revelations regarding my strengths and my purpose.

On top of all of this, I've finally picked up a copy of The Gift of Giving Life. Until this point I've only read excerpts on the website, which have been enlightening; but now, to heft the book in my hands, to turn its pages and read at will what the Spirit brings to me, it is stirring something more in my heart.

I have five semesters left to finish my degree. The question I get from family, "What are you going to do with it?" Well, the same thing I've been doing without it. Writing. Emoting. Giving word to the state of existence as I know it, however those words might manifest. 

So what then?

I can't say this is carved in stone, but ever since I birthed L— at home I've had deep interest in assisting in natural birth settings. There is a midwifery school an hour away that offers distance training for MS degrees.

It's just a thought.
