I am pleased to say that the first quarter of my dissertation journey has ended and I received a satisfactory grade! The next quarter begins on the 30th of this month and I look forward to it. Regarding the prospectus, I still have a few things to revise and plan to have that ready for review the first week of next quarter. Last week, I traveled to my hometown to see my niece graduate high school and celebrate my mother and sister for Mother’s Day. I was able to see a few family and friends and enjoy myself. I decided to take a mental break from dissertation and it feels good. My chair agreed with me about taking the time to walk away from it for a little while. She said it would help me to see clearly.
Sometimes in life we need to step back from things so that we get a clear view. When we are close upon things, our view is limited and we do not see the whole picture. It is important that we do this frequently so that we may assess where we are and grab hold of where we are going. A peripheral vision is needed to gain view of all sides of what we are looking at. We constantly have a center view and often are distorted in our peripheral vision. As I continue with my mental break from dissertation, I encourage you to take a step back from an area of life that has been center focused and gain another view. It will help you understand why you are focused on the area and perhaps get a better grip on where you are going with it.
As always, I am excited to share my dissertation journey with you. I ask that you share this blog with someone else. We all are going through some type of journey and this might be the encouragement you or that person need to go a litter further. Let’s encounter this life changing experience together!
