Turning 2…

Happy anniversary

Lead Challenge Inspire is turning two today and looking back on the past 24 months, I can definitely say things have changed…

It seems like yesterday when I was writing my very first blog and then a year later my first anniversary blog post. Yet I’m now in such a different position.

Of course, my seven-month sabbatical in Canada, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Sri Lanka, Nepal and India, which kicked off this blogging adventure, had a huge impact on my life. I opened my eyes to new realities and my mind to new opportunities. I came back wanting a greater purpose for my career and a means of making a difference in our communities.

The year that followed my return was filled with doubts and questions as I launched into the harsh world of job hunting with grand, but unclear aspirations and little direct experience. Luckily, my beautiful friends and acquaintances gave me a roof and some contract work. Most of all, romance found its way into my life and it was love at first sight with my amazing ‘Dan the Man’.

Then at the end of last year, the unclear aspirations I had been voicing for 12 months came knocking at my door and I started volunteering for an organisation I immediately became passionate about: The Helmsman Project. For the last six months, I have been working as a contractor for the later as well as another very worthwhile not-for-profit, Chris O’Brien Lifehouse.

Now today, as well as my blog’s two-year anniversary, it is also my first day of full-time employment (at The Helmsman Project) since July 2012. Two years ago, I quit the security of my career to explore other horizons. I have gained purpose, love and memorable moments.

They say of kids at this age they’re in their ‘terrible two’s’… I don’t know if it applies to the world of blogging, but I’m ready for it. Because if there is one lesson I have learnt from the past two years, it is that great opportunities happen when we’re prepared to shake things up! So bring it on!

Yours truly :)
