See Life as a Journey, Your Journey

47396749 - see life as journey - inspiration phrase on a slate blackboard with chalk and cup of tea

I am thankful that life did not turn out the way I had planned.  Why?  The life I had planned for myself when I was a teenager would have been so boring!  I would have married the wrong guy (trust me, he was the wrong guy), and I would have limited myself in so many ways.

My journey into adulthood began in 1991 after graduating from high school.  I enrolled at a local community college and worked two part-time jobs.  Several weeks into my first college semester, I received a confirmation by mail that I had been accepted by an out-of-state college.  I moved the following semester.  My parents bought me luggage, a one-way airplane ticket, a Greyhound Bus ticket, and sent me off in the dead of winter to Rexburg, Idaho.  With no car, no cell phone, and two suitcases in tow, I was dropped off late one evening by a shuttle driver outside my college dorm.

We have the opportunity and responsibility to be involved in a variety of communities that impact our world today.  What community resonates with your heart?

I have a deep appreciation for leaders who choose to serve in public office to support local, regional, state, and national governance.  I care about the participation, engagement, and leadership within associations, churches, non-profit organizations, businesses, and governments.  I admire individuals who look beyond what they can receive to focus on what they can give.  I am thankful for people who choose to give of their time and resources to support good causes, events, and have a positive impact in the world we live in.
