This is My Word Of The Week – Opportunity.
Opportunity, a noun – ‘a time or set of circumstances that makes it possible to do something’
This week has been full of opportunities for me. I was asked at work if I wanted the opportunity to develop further with them to become a manager. My first thought was why? A couple of months back I was demoted from a Team Leader as part of the companies management restructure and now they want to use my knowledge again!
I did on this opportunity turn them down, because I’m very happy with what I’m doing at work and I have my family, blog and all my books outside of work to keep me busy enough without putting in lots of hours training and what not.
That was my first opportunity of the week, my second came from being approved as a Bookbridgr blogger. My blog is a mixture of books, competitions, gardening and all sorts of lifestyle things as you may know, so being given this opportunity with Bookbridgr to review books is amazing. I can’t wait to get started on browsing books to request for reviewing.
My third opportunity has come from being contacted by a company to write a post for them. I am so excited about this, that they chose little new blogger me! Baring in mind I have only been blogging just under 3 months, I found this opportunity to be just what I want for my blog. I hope it leads to many more opportunities in the future.
Lastly I just want to say thank you to all of you who are making my blog a success so far, and giving me the opportunity and inspiration to write more posts.
