The Green Girl's Updated Motivational Collage

The Green Girl decided the time had come to update her Motivational Collage again.

Since my last collage, I did manage to Say Goodbye. I mentally bid farewell to things I needed released from my life.

I did not re-Cisco certify and I've decided to let that one go for now.

I have started spending more time in the kitchen and I'm slowly learning how to prepare some basic dishes.

My updated collage reflects the following:
  • Follow my heart
  • Dream
  • Accrue PDUs for PMP certification
  • Find balance

In order to maintain my PMP certification, I must earn 60 professional development units (PDUs) per three-year cycle. This is achieved by attending Project Management Institute (PMI) events and certified educational courses.

The ॐ symbol represents my desire to find balance in my life.

For the most part, I'm a rationalist. Growing up, I was intrigued by the English scientist and philosopher, Francis Bacon, and his theory of empiricism. Empiricism is the view that knowledge is derived from experience.

I have a tendency to be overly logical and analytical and I find great comfort in mathematics and science - in proven fact.

Following my heart and dreaming are ways for me to work on expanding my reality.

If a man will begin with certainties, he shall end in doubts; but if he will be content to begin with doubts he shall end in certainties. Francis Bacon

  1. Hello fellow science and math lover. :-)
    I love your collage idea. Mine right now would be too busy. I think I need to narrow down my focus, which most of the time seems like mission impossible.
    As for cooking, don't sweat it. Just throw in the pot whatever you think is going to work. Don't learn (overanalyze ;-) ), have fun with it.

  2. I love the quote and your collage. What a great way to keep the important things before you so you don't get sidetracked.

    Good luck!

  5. I still remember when you did the last collage. Time flies! I echo Ewa's fellow science and math lover. Amazing how people with similar interests connect without even knowing each other.

  6. These are all great things to focus on. I am also guided by analytics and math (that's the accountant in me) and have a hard time doing things that would qualify as "following my heart". If it doesn't make sense logistically, I'm not into it.

    I should take your lead. Looking forward to hearing about your big dreams!

  9. I didn' know there was a name for my 'condition'... thanks for the label... I quite like it!

    Visualizing and illustrating are good ways to focus on what we want, I agree.
