Opportunities

Yes I am still here. I have been very busy outside of this blog. I still do have my TED Talk New York Trip to talk about and I had a birthday pass as well. I also had a spell of no motivation to which I just kinda of took a break from everything. I eleam out of that spell, my life is flooding with opportunities right now, and I am just trying to keep them in order.

I was researching to rejoin Toastmasters and I just went to a meeting Monday. They seem excited to have me join and I have already volunteered to help them network and expand their club. If you are not familiar with Toastmasters it is an international organization were all varieties of people get together with a common goal to improve their public speaking abilities. Obviously, this is a perfect organization for me to join and I look forward to seeing if this will be a good fit for me in the coming weeks.

I have also been looking to volunteer at children’s hospitals and children’s homes. It has been a difficult journey and I finally discovered the reality of this desire. I talked with someone from the hospital and she told me why it was so difficult to get in, and once you are in its years before you start actually helping the children directly. It was very real and it all made sense but it is just not an opportunity for my fast paced lifestyle. The Assistant Principle at my school told me about a great organization called Give Kids The World here in Florida. Just the other day I meet someone in the grocery store that worked there. She said the application rate is 100% acceptance pending my background check. Give Kids The World is an organization that takes in less fortunate or ill children from all over the world and gives them the vacation of a life time. I really look forward to hearing back from them, and hope I can help as well.

I also got interviewed by a Life Coach that is coming out with her own website which will be a consulting site. She will have people with many different skill sets involved in this site and it will be like an internet radio idea. I don’t want to say much about it just yet but when she has it up and running you will certainly know about it. This will give me the opportunity to network out farther. I will be able to share my ideas on many different platforms and this will give me a good opportunity to work on the video and speech ends of my goals. This will also give me an opportunity to be one of the people consulting others and making a little extra cash in the process. This is something that is already in the works and I am excited to get the ball rolling to see how this new website works out for her and everyone she is trying to get involved with it.

Outside my job and volunteering at the Elementary school those are just a few things I am working on. A few others are; taking a public speaking course on my own, researching and implementing my own TED Talk presentation, looking into making some extra money with my passion for gemstones and healing crystals. There is probably more smaller things that I am forgetting right now as well!

I just wanted to check in for my avid followers to say I am still here. This blog is very important to me but it is also a path into many more opportunities that need to be pursued. As always I am so grateful for your following and no matter the time frame between my post on here I am still moving forward with my main goals in life.

I have also made my way back to the beach and in the water for the first time sense I left for Alaska in June.

A creative mind takes no label. A positive mind sees past that which is easy to find. Find the things you love in life and share them with others. I am an artist. I am a positive thinker. I am on a quest to love everything life gives to me. On the outside I am no different then anyone else but on the inside I feel I have a lot of different things to share. My goal is to find those willing to listen. Those willing to share there thoughts in return. I have a long list of goals in my life, some I have met and all the rest I am getting closer to every day. I want to write a book, I want to be a motivational speaker, I want to own an art gallery, just to name a few.
