It seems impossible that my two weeks in Vancouver are already over.
It seems impossible because instead of wrapping up in a nice and tidy ten-day bundle, the time evaporates into an ever growing list of things I have to do. There are loose strings hanging every which way and email threads that promise to continue. I’m mid-project in several places, and am working hard to fill in knowledge gaps that feel big and sometimes insurmountable.
It sounds bad right? In fact, it’s exactly the opposite of bad.
It’s jump-up-and-down-fill-your-boots-I-can’t-stop-grinning kind of good. It’s I’m-still-on-the-team-can’t-wait-to-go-back kind of good. It’s three-exclamation-points-on-the-end-of-my-sentence kind of good!!!
It’s exactly the way things are supposed to be kind of good.
Thank you for believing in me Change Heroes. Thank you for saying yes when I asked to come and explore your culture. Thank you for teaching me, for challenging me, and most of all for welcoming me on board with open arms and enthusiasm.
This is only the beginning – I can’t wait to get started.
