Great News:

IRB approved my study for my PhD!

To elaborate, the Institutional Review Board at Our Lady of the Lake University has given me the green light to conduct my doctoral dissertation research. This was my next step up since my committee blessed my Concept Proposal. Now I feel this sense of accomplishment and relief since investing countless hours, that the fruits of my labor are blooming, just like flowers are blossoming from the Spring showers. Of course, I still have more to do from here, yet reaching this point reminds me that I am getting closer to my goal, and that my investment of time and energy to my study is well worth it.

My ultimate goal actually is getting closer to GOD, by following His will and His way. Reaching my PhD can open up my capacity to serve GOD’s people, and in turn, to serve Him first and foremost. Reading Rediscovering Catholicism by Matthew Kelly has opened up my heart to fulfilling my true purpose. Reflections on my own relationship with the LORD has helped me soak in a positive perspective on all of my other practices in my daily life, because I can center them around Him.

The same applies to my new job as a professional photographer. During my orientation and training process, I have been learning new photography and sales techniques. On one day off from my work site, I’m still studying on my own to know my job and our products. The teacher nature in me has quizzed myself by writing practice exams to do test runs and ensure my knowledge. Addressing issues that call for improvement head-on will build up my progress, and approaching everything positively will lead me to keep preceding on the right path, as my boss showed us this morning!
