A friend asked me if I have buyer’s remorse and my reply was “no, but I’m nervous and I don’t know if I want to win or lose.” As I say this tongue in cheek, know I’m scared. Who in their right mind wouldn’t be? I want to do a good job for the women of the club, I want to unite the group. Return it to a social club where the ladies can have fun and optimistically enjoy themselves . All this and lunch for $17.00. No problem, right?
Well, I’m willing to try my damnedest! Now all I have to do is pass the interview by the nominating committee, actually win the election and then it’s smooth sailing. Oh, no wait……..then I have to DO the job….
Maybe I do have buyers remorse. Maybe I should have thought this through better………nah. I’m glad I did it. It will help me grow as a person. I’m sure it won’t be easy, but is anything worth doing easy? I will meet many new people doing this job, and many new obstacles, I’m sure. Not everyone of them will be pleasant but each will have it’s purpose in my life’s journey.
If I can help one person or add anything to the club to make it better by having been an officer, I would be honored. If the women were happy they elected me, I would be satisfied that I threw my hat in the ring and made their lives better and happier in some way by unifying the club.
If my opponent wins, then I will happily shake her hand and congratulate her. Let the best candidate win. And so it goes……
