A Year of Gratitude - Day One Hundred Sixteen

Day 116 - A New Challenge
I had a new opportunity fully manifest itself today when I took the reins of a job finders networking group today.  I met with the previous moderator to ask for information and advice on taking it over.  He is fully supportive, and I’m looking forward to making this work.
It’s scary, too.  I have to learn about the two online “groups” - one on Yahoo, the other on LinkedIn - how they function, and how to moderate them; I have to prepare myself to welcome people into the group, and to manage the databases as required (which fortunately won’t be that much).  And, of course, I’ll be in charge of facilitating the meetings.
Within an hour of the announcement of the next meeting, I received an email from the moderator of another group asking if I wanted to be a guest speaker at his meeting.  When my head stopped spinning, I wondered just how fast this train was going to go.  Am I prepared to ride this ride?  I don’t know what I’ve just gotten myself into, but I’m determined to do my best and see where it leads.
It’s fun, exciting, and frightening all at once, and I’m happy to have the new challenge.  This group will give new purpose to my Tuesdays.  And probably more.
