One step forward, two big steps back...

September 28, 2016

Yesterday was one of those days where you wonder, "why did I get up this morning?"  After getting support from a group to recruit volunteers for the Homecoming Parade, I found out via email that my meet and greet location had to cancel the room reservation due to "not hosting political events that promote a candidate."  I have no problem with following rules, but when someone tells me that I have a confirmed reservation, I take that at face value and make my plans.  Suddenly, everything I had worked for was in shambles.


Now at this point, some people would choose to quit, cancel the meet and greet, and go back to bed.  And the truth is, I thought about it.  Then I calmed down and called my team, who talked me off the wall and helped me to see this was a temporary set back.  Also, the people at the previous location were upset regarding their role in the mix up and are making calls to find us a new location.  We are now close to finding a new place to hold our event. 


Yes, at first I was upset, but I found a way to work around the disappointment and get back on track.  It's called overcoming adversity, and it's difficult, but it leads to growth and maybe something even better.  Plan A doesn't always work, but Plan B might be even better!  I am now looking forward to the challenges (not problems) of the next few days as we prepare for a parade and a meet and greet! 


Have a wonderful day!
