Today I want to share some advice of sorts, that was given to me not so long ago that I would also love to give those same students..
One of the (few) positives in my job is helping students figure out what they want to do with their lives and help them work out how to get there.
So when the Defence Force sent out an invitation for me to take 2 female students interested in signing up to a High Tea, I was excited and knew would I would take straight away.
At the High Tea we had 3 key speakers, from completely different backgrounds with different links to the Defence Forces, who gave inspiring and thought provoking speeches and who excited the students even more about their chosen career path. Heck, they were so inspiring that for a brief (very brief) moment I thought I might actually be keen to sign up....then I remembered the whole potentially shooting people and going to war bizzo and quickly moved on from that thought.
One of the speakers really hit home for me and I found myself being just as inspired as the girls were. She talked to us about the three C's (and no it wasn't Chocolate, Champagne and Chardonnay which are three C's I often like the sound of!!!). What she was referring to was Choices, Chances and Change.
It really was a message that struck a cord with me.
As we left we were given a pack of goodies which included this little book
|If you follow my Instagram you would already know that ;-)|
Linking up with Essentially Jess for IBOT!
