Yesterday, my doctoral research was submitted (to be examined on 17th January) and with this major milestone behind me, I'm ready for the rest of my life.
I know it's a most terrible cliche, but it seems to me that sometimes it's worth a day being put aside for big thoughts about the future, so...
Today, I'm thankful for what I have, and excited about my future career and opportunities. More on all that to come.
Whether you are motivated by a spiritual dimension in general, a faith in something bigger than what we see in particular, or a feet on this earth humanist, I hope you agree that for those of us who have been blessed with (or been lucky enough, or skilful enough) to have much, then much in turn is expected of us in making our world a better place.
My thoughts on how to do that will follow every day.
