I had an interview a few weeks back.
I wasn’t ready for it.
To be honest, the spring before school lets out is an insane time for a teacher. But, this is a once in every two year chance so I went for it.
I was way out of my comfort zone being the only secondary education teacher there with loads of agriculture industry professionals from executive directors, managers, business owners and more.
I wasn’t ready for it, but I tried anyway.
Have you ever heard the saying “If you wait until you are ready to do something, you’ll never do it.”
Kinda reminds me of parenting, if my husband and I waited until we were ready/prepared/all knowledgeable about child rearing we would NEVER have kids.
You just do the best you can, say a prayer, and hope for the best.
We should do more of that, we should encourage our kids to do more of that.
When was the last time you tried something new, exciting, and frightening and you knew you weren’t ready for it?
Can you remember?
I bet the outcome was either (A) amazing, indescribable, exhilarating or (B) terrible, not what you expected and never trying that again. Outcome (B) isn’t bad, you LEARNED something right? That is what life is A-L-L about!
Let’s keep doing things we aren’t ready for, I truly think that is where the amazingness happens. And don’t forget to get your kid to too!
So TRY, before you are ready.
