Yesterday I had a very exciting thing happen.
We all naturally spend a lot of time doing tasks that are important but not very exciting. Occasionally we might get an opportunity to do something that we are passionate about, talented at and skilled at. Pundits call this the “sweet spot,” “purpose,” “win” or simply “dang it, you go girl.”
Yesterday I was offered an opportunity that will allow me to work in this space for a bit and I am so very thrilled and grateful.
Petrified too of course, because new opportunities are challenging and when we get something we really want in life, the stakes are so high.
Previously I have shied away from opportunities when I have been scared of failure. But thanks to maturity and my ever-increasing age, I have learned to just face my fears and jump right in.
So today I am grateful for.
- Awesome opportunities for working in my “sweet spot.”
- The maturity and experience to face my fears and “just do it.”
- Music. Because nothing quite works to life the mood and bring on the tears and help express our un-explainable feelings like a well written song. Plus dancing around the kitchen with my embarrassed kids is pretty awesome too.
So what are you grateful for today?
Have you ever managed to find opportunities in your own sweet spot?
I’d love to hear about it.
