“Opportunity dances with those already on the dance floor.”
It is hard for me to believe that a month has already flown by! I feel that the quote above describes a lot of what has been going on in my life. If we aren't willing to take a risk, we will never reap the rewards of an opportunity. What an opportunity this year has already been!
State Conference for Chapter Leaders was a blast! I had a great time meeting with members and watching everyone get excited for the coming year. This year we have countless opportunities to pursue in FFA. Some opportunities will be easy for us to take while others will have to be “danced” with before we are ready. If we are willing to risk boldly to grow ourselves and our chapters, we will be able to see the benefits of those opportunities!
Just today, I had the opportunity to go on my first motorcycle ride. Flying down the interstate at 75 miles per hour was a little nerve-wracking at first, but once I got accustomed to the feeling, I was having a ball! I am glad I took the chance to try something new and get outside of my comfort zone. On a day like today, we also have the opportunity to give a special thanks to the men and women that have and continue to declare and support our nation’s freedom!
Before I close out my first-ever blog post, I want to take the opportunity to share a little bit about me:
1. I am from a family of five that I love. I have an older sister and a younger brother.
2. I love my mules, dogs, and cats. They are my babies.
3. If I can do something outdoors, I am probably doing it.
4. I can jam out to just about any music.
5. I LOVE FFA!
Thank you Kansas FFA for giving me the opportunity to serve you this coming year. I can’t wait to see what this year will bring for all members!
Kansas FFA, how will you get on the dance floor?
