It is quite crazy how life works. One day can be up and the next day down. It can feel like you are soaring over California and ruling the world and the next moment as if Rome has collapsed into your arms. Life is a rollercoaster. Life is unpredictable. Life is constantly changing.
I have developed a passion for now. A passion to embrace each moment and each day with all that G-d has blessed me with. To make today great! To make goals, work towards them and press onward. Now, that doesn’t mean I don’t have stumbling days where I crawl into a ball on my bed and sob myself to sleep. It happens. All of it.
Today happens to be a great day. I have also realized how much I have developed a passion for NAO, the robots I program and work with at my job on campus. This year I even trained freshmen to do the programming, marketing and presenting. It is so incredible. Being the coordinator has opened up my eyes to better understand how our professors feel when they give us intense engineering projects. They want us to ask questions but the right ones. They want to help us but they want us to learn. It has been a learning experience alright. I am so grateful that my boss, my dean believed in me enough to make me learn how to program these robots more than a year ago. It has paid off in so many ways and continues to teach me and provide me with opportunities. I am SO grateful!
Today I heard a speaker talk and he talked about not wasting the talents that G-d blesses us with. To do great things. To live our purpose. and to never forget, that each of us individually was blessed to be a blessing. I feel so thankful to G-d for the opportunity to work with the Nao robots. To learn how these robots work. To feel inspired with many ideas and to innovate creative programs. To present with passion, enthusiasm and energy. To love what I do and not dread my hours of work but to desire to make time for it. Now to be teaching others. Leading, guiding and coordinating is requiring new skills but it seems to be the avenue that I can do currently. It is wonderful to share something that I have learned to love, with others. To spread the knowledge and the encouragement that doing amazing things is possible. It may take some hard work, a few tears and many frustrating days. BUT….trust me, it’ll be worth it.
