Thankful Thursday: Opportunities

I heard a speech this year (let’s call it a pre-TedTalk) about Luck. The more I listened, the more I knew wasn’t lucky — I had simply been placing myself in the right places at the right times.  
I was inspired by this talk given at the RealOrators Toastmasters Club by Darlene Fenn of COHR Consulting.

If I wasn’t so curious about who was in “my chat room” on IRC back in 1997, I wouldn’t have interrogated my future husband. If I didn’t look for something different out of my college degree, I never would have gotten my first IT job at the age of 21.

I have struggled — we all know that.  Hopefully I was never too negative or seemed to “down on my luck”.  In me, there is almost always a smile and a will to find another way to my goal.  After a year of struggling — Look at me now!

Happily married for 16 years with a Project Management job that utilizes my strong IT background.

Having what we have hasn’t been about luck — It has been about taking chances and trying on new things. Opening myself up for failure and usually “lucking out” with a big win.

Be Daring. Take Chances. Be Open.


What chances are you going to take today?
