I (keep meaning) to be here more often. I really do! But a lot has been going on for me lately, and it’s been keeping pretty busy…
For one thing. I quit my job. Now, I know I’ve threatened it, and even attempted it, before now, but now it’s official. I QUIT. I, Chere, made the decision to quit a job. My choice. That has never happened in my life before this day. You see, somewhere along my life I was taught that if you had a job, no matter how torturous it had become, you never left. No. Matter.What. You and that job were chained together till death do you part. So, you might understand now why I had such a terribly difficult time leaving. But, I did it. My last day is Oct. 15th. Hooray!
And, in the meantime, something completely out of the blue transpired. You might remember, many months ago, I was posting information from a site called wishsummit.com . This site is a site on women’s health. WISH stands for Women’s International Summits for Health. And I was so impressed by the summits I listened in on, that I wrote them a letter. I explained my strengths and experience and asked them if I they might have any volunteer work that I could do. Lo and behold, before I turned around, the founder had written me back and asked me to be involved in creating the next summit. The summit that is coming up in October, on ADD/ADHD/Autism. And so, I’ve been pretty busy. No, not pretty busy. Really, really busy!!!
And, this amazing volunteer opportunity has turned into a full time position. Yep. As I write this, I have been working my butt off making sure that this ADD summit coming up, ROCKS! I am in training at the moment, working alongside the founder of WISH herself, the most amazing woman I have met in a very long time. A complete ROCKSTAR! I am learning a TON of new stuff, it’s more than a bit overwhelming, but so much fun!
And so, ahem, I would like you to meet the new Director of WISH, at wishsummit.com . Yes, I know. I can barely believe it myself. And I haven’t wanted to say a WORD to anyone, in case I jinxed the whole thing. But instead, I’m putting my intention ‘out there’. This is BIG. Really, really big, and I intend to ROCK this job to the moon and back.
So, stay tuned, blog-o-sphere! I’ll be posting, and sharing all the GREAT things coming up with you.
