Caption: Me at the DH Tent at Made in America in Philly last summer… #ALLDAY
At times I’ve worked multiple jobs (at one point I was a Full Time student and had not one, not two, but THREE jobs).
At one point I thought I wanted to be a lawyer, but soon realized that my real calling was teaching and writing.
Every single job I’ve had whether it was standing in the drive-thru at McDonald’s or standing in front of 140 students per day taught me something about myself, about others and about the world.
After finishing up about 5 e-mails to members of our Instructional Team and partners we’re working with on initiatives, it hit me.
For the first time EVER, not only am I totally & completely in love with my “job,” my “job” is totally & completely in love with me!
Now don’t get me wrong… every day is not sunshine and rainbows and glitter. Some days are ROUGH… People take advantage of my kindness… Sometimes doors are slammed in my face – both literally and figuratively… and sometimes the insecurity monsters nibble on the fear that creeps in every now and then.
But those rough days are no comparison to the good days… the days when someone says you’ve said or done something that they’ll always remember… the days when you get to be a fly on a wall and witness creative genius in its purist form… the days when you can close your laptop, your calendar, your notebook with an overwhelming sense of peace, motivation and fullness.
I’ve been at this Executive Director thing for 21 months and this “job” is the joy and the center of my heart.
I thank God for not only answering my prayers, but for empowering me to be a persistent, unwavering and impervious force of change.
I am, about my Father’s business…
