It was both a blessing and a privilege to be chosen to participate in Viviene Bigornia’s e-course titled The Roadmap to a Fulfilled Life: Living the Life God Designed You to Have. What made me decide to take this course is my desire to live a fulfilled life. It may sound cheesy to some, but at my age (I’m 36), I believe it’s never too late to make my dreams come true.
I first met Viv from the South Homeschoolers Meetup, a small gathering of homeschoolers and parents who plan to homeschool. I didn’t know much about her so before the e-course formally started, I checked out Viv’ s profile from her website, www.fulfilledwomen.com. I have discovered that she is one brave woman who was able to surpass the challenges that she encountered in her motherhood and career life, and she credits it all to her renewed relationship with GOD.
I like the format of this e-course. It is divided into four segments, where each part has a video presentation and corresponding worksheets that participants have to answer after each segment. Viv also had FB Live sessions twice for the duration of the course where participants were encouraged to comment and share their thoughts. The videos have truly inspired me and the worksheets helped me to do a self-assessment and motivated me to act on what God has called me to do. I also loved that Viv used verses from the Bible to demonstrate how God is at work in our lives and that He truly wants us to live the life that He designed for each of us.
By going through The Roadmap to a Fulfilled Life, I was able to figure out a lot of things.
- The first segment of the Fulfilled Life reminded me of the things that I already know but, as I have discovered, was not being intentional about it. This session has encouraged me to be more intentional in having a relationship with our Maker and constantly look to Him as my source of inspiration and motivation to fulfill my personal calling.
- When I got to the second segment of the e-course, I read the part where Viv said that God is economical; He will not let any experience go to waste. At that moment, I felt enligthened and relieved to know that God is indeed with me all along and that He allowed me to take on those projects and encounter difficult people to increase my work knowldege, improve my skills, and toughen up when facing challenging situations. I was really amazed and thankful thereafter
- The third segment of the e-course helped me identify the excuses that I have in chasing my dreams. My first excuse is that I feel that I can never be as good as other people. My next excuse is that chores and child care can wear me down on some days. It doesn’t help that I’m the sleepy type and would always rely on coffee to be more alert and focused. Can’t do that now because I’m pregnant. Oh excuses, excuses! I’m working on pushing myself to do what needs to be accomplished by remembering what I’ve learned from this part of the Fulfilled Life and by pondering on the Bible verses about diligence. Praying to be better soonest
- The last segment of the e-course has enabled me to do a reality check. I am taking baby steps and praying a lot as I press on to live a fulfilled life that GOD has designed for me.
Thanks a lot Viv for creating The Roadmap to a Fulfilled Life: Living the Life God Designed You to Have e-course. This has served as a wake-up call for me and prompted me to really take action and work on fulfilling my personal calling. May the Lord bless you more so you can help out more women ☺
