I’m contemplating my future tonight. You know I have goals. I’m ready to make those goals happen… So to do that, I want to expand my blog. But I think it means I need to clean it up a little.
I’m a swearer. Raised in machine shops as an only child, I had access to creative language from a very early age. I don’t think swearing is bad, when used appropriately and in proper company. But if I want to bring my professional life in, I need to make some slight modifications. Plus, a couple of weeks ago, I was sort of convicted by a meme on Facebook about the word ‘very.’ It was a beautiful quote by Robin Williams’ character in Dead Poets Society and it really moved me to try to be better with my words.
I’ve always thought that I needed a really cool niche, something that other people thought was cool. But I’ve started to realize, the more I nerd out on my job and helping people find their passion, the more I want to continue to do that. Because while I won’t say I’m awesome at it, I love doing it. I am good at my job, and I love watching people take baby steps that they wouldn’t have taken without encouragement from a friend. I love helping people work out what is holding them back. And sometimes I even enjoy sharing my story when I know that it could/might/would give someone a little hope that things can get better.
Change is Good
So you might see a few minor changes around here. Things will still look the same for a while, I’m sure, but I’ll be adding some fun things around the place, to spruce it up a bit.
Are you ready? Do you want to hear about human resources, wellness, Autism and Mental Health advocacy? What about working motherhood and women in construction?
Thanks for joining me, friends!
Much love – Mel
