I've been doing a lot lately and have been neglecting you - I apologize.
I'm working on finding what I'm truly interested in and finding ways to get involved with those things. I must say, I'm doing a pretty damn good job so far. I'm getting involved with more volunteer work outside of work, and was recently given the opportunity to work with an amazing company that focuses on getting students involved in community service projects in their own communities and globally. They take a huge group of high school students to Kenya and do service projects, and guess what! I signed up to be on their communications team for the trip!
I'm getting involved with communications for other events they are hosting, and building a communications strategy for before and during not only the Kenya trip, but every event before that!
Figuring this whole project management thing out hasn't been the easiest, but I've had my Mommy to help me along the way. She's guiding me to think about things from a much bigger picture while still keeping the details just under the surface. Needless to say there are at least a billion moving pieces at any given moment, but I'm loving every step! I'm learning so much and figuring out what works for me.
I'll be posting about the upcoming events once the communications are finalized - I hope someone can benefit from getting involved!
(side note: Starbucks really is a great place to go and get stuff done)
I've got to go for now. I still have some things to wrap up that need to be delivered tomorrow (having a plan and a timeline are crucial to any success with project management and launching communications for any event).
Stay true to yourselves out there. You're the only you there will ever be. You're the only one who can live your story. You're the only one who can be you. Just be you. Never forget that.
~until next time
Working a full time job, raising two daughters, attempting to have a social life, trying to make my family proud, and trying to make myself proud are things I do every day. I'm now beginning my journey of giving. This is step one.
