Goals and Gratitude – Day 6

October 28, 2011

Gratitude: I am starting with the gratitude portion of my little game today, because when the Universe brings you this kind of stuff, you need to stop and acknowledge. So Thank you, Universe, for not letting my husband be on the plane that crashed yesterday just outside of YVR. My DH happened to be flying into the very same airport, around the same time, and when I heard about the crash my world stopped. Everyone on board was sent to the hospital with varying degrees of injuries. The pilot just died this morning. I am so very sorry for everyone who was involved – my thoughts are with them and their families – and so very blessed that we are not among them. I am also grateful for the kindness of strangers, for the innocent bystanders who rushed to save the individuals involved.  Here’s a link to read more: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/story/2011/10/27/bc-richmond-plane-crash.html

Goal: This seems a bit petty given recent events, but I am hoping to be elected to a Board of Directors position this evening. There are seven people running for three vacancies. To say that I am the dark horse in the race is a monumental understatement. I am running against individuals far more well-known in this industry than I. The fact that I am here by myself, all alone, whereas my opponents have each come with posse’s from their organizations to support them, does not bode well for me. But, I am in it to win it! So today my goal is to continue to meet people, to show that I am a committed, skilled individual willing to get the job done, and to hopefully get a few votes. (Just enough for that third spot would be nice!)

Update from Day 5: Many connections made, seven business cards to show for it, and I still have two days to go.

  1. I thought of you and your husband and prayed both were OK!

    • I can’t imagine what those families are going through. For the amount of time he spends in a plane, it feels a bit like he odds are increasingly stacked against us. A moment like that makes you stop and think. Thank you fr your prayers and your comment. Miss you.
