I've just thrown in my counselling course. ($5000) wasted . I decided I dont' want to sit and listen to druggies and beaten wives and criminals. I want to help on a realistic scale. So apart from doing courses at TAFE could someone fill me in on practical courses and training so i can become the best god damned aid worker in the history of mankind? (yeah I know, that was a little over the top ) I havent been this excited about a decision in sooooo many years. I've always just plodded along and I came here to find out about chooks and compost . And then I was having a heated debate about war and starvation on another forum, and it struck me, OH MY GOD. When I was a kid I wanted to be a missionary (okay stop laughing , that's not going to happen these days :lol: ) And then I look at my "favourites list" and it's full of counselling sites, permaculture sites, self suffiency sites, home made toy sites, and the list goes on......It's been under my nose all along. Great i hit 40 and suddenly know what I want to do with my life :shock: Just have to add to that list fitness sites and I'll be set.!!! WOOOHOOOO!!!!!!
