What role does Higher Education play in a student’s discovery of doing what they love?
I read the quote below and know that the students I coach and “advise” know little of the world outside the life they’ve known so far. With retention numbers critical and student loans at record highs, my relationship with students must embrace the whole person with personal and life dreams that are beyond the academic journey bringing them to our university.
:AN AMAZING THING HAPPENS WHEN YOU GET HONEST WITH YOURSELF AND START DOING WHAT YOU LOVE, WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY. YOUR LIFE LITERALLY SLOWS DOWN. YOU STOP WISHING FOR THE WEEKEND. YOU STOP MERELY LOOKING FORWARD TO SPECIAL EVENTS. YOU BEGIN TO LIVE IN EACH MOMENT AND YOU START FEELING LIKE A HUMAN BEING. YOU JUST RIDE THE WAVE THAT IS LIFE, WITH THIS FEELING OF CONTENTMENT AND JOY. YOU MOVE FLUIDLY, STEADILY, CALM AND GRATEFUL. A VEIL IS LIFTED, AND A WHOLE NEW PERSPECTIVE IS BORN:.
