Stepping out of your comfort zone can be scary. When the sphere of your world is nice and cozy, even taking a peek outside can be intimidating sometimes.
Last year, as my tenure as PWT President was coming to a close, Annie casually suggested that I consider assuming the Area Governor role the following term. The idea of being Area Governor seemed too daunting to actually take on, so I thought of a dozen plausible reasons to reject the notion.
But the seed that Annie planted in the back of my mind had grown over the following year, so when Julie presented the AG opportunity to me just a few days ago, I thought to myself, “If not now, then when? Now is when!” and decided to bring the idea to the forefront and humbly, respectfully and excitingly accept the nomination.
I don’t know how many twists and turns await me in assuming this new challenge, but I do know that I will continue to meet wonderful people and appreciate everyone’s help as well as embrace the positive opportunities presented to me over the next 12 months.
Thank you all for your acceptance of me–past, present and future.
Now is the time. Let the voyage begin!
