This blogpost is dedicated to Allyson Apsey, a fellow member of the #compelledtribe bloggers and author of The Path to Serendipity. She got me pondering about how life happens because of us!
Often the path of change is predictable. You MUST do this in order to do that, kinda thing. We seek opportunities or roles that will lead us to the pre-determined destination and grab the pre-existing brass ring. But, how about if that doesn't happen? What do we do? That is exactly the conundrum that I faced. How do I go about becoming an educational leader without exactly BEING an educational leader? Serendipity, that's how! It doesn't happen to you, it happens because of you. Because you remain passionate and pursue opportunities that will lead you to your purpose, great things can happen.
Three years ago, I could not have imagined all that has happened to me professionally and personally. I am thrilled by opportunities to share my voice to elevate and celebrate educators and improve education in some small way. I have met incredible #eduheroes who have deeply inspired me to have faith and follow the path of serendipity that intersects with purpose and determination--and there, at that precise juncture, will be where I am supposed to be. I don't know exactly what it will be or where, but I am enjoying the journey. I am confident that I will arrive exactly where I am to be.
Look for Allyson's book published by Dave Burgess Consulting. You will be inspired to savor every serendipitous moment that life brings you; I sure am!!
