Wow. Here I am today, sitting in another province, and I am very blessed to be a part of another illuminating experience working with young people.
I will be honest. I did have writer’s block on this post. So, to overcome this, I decided to take a quick look at a post that I wrote at the same time last year. Turns out, I was also working on another project that was working with youth (you can read about that post HERE). Oh yeah, I remember this event and all the surprises that came along with it (power outages on the day of the event — thank god for the sun since it was a nice day for picnics all over the campus). It seems to me that the best things in my life are the things that I take chances on.
This current summer experience was a chance I took. True to form, I applied to this job posting for the Alberta Future Leaders program on the day it was due (but only because I didn’t see the job posting until that day lol). Later in the week, I received an email saying that I was chosen for an interview. So, the interview happened and then …
Then on the day I was doing a paper presentation, again literally 5 minutes before my presentation, I received a call back saying that I got the job!
Now, here I am sitting in Jasper, Alberta, writing this blog on how I took another chance on an additional opportunity.
I am very blessed to be able to share this with you all and I hope that you all one day have the opportunity to take a chance on something worthwhile for yourself and for others!
