Here we are, two unknown people among a sea of talent and potential. It's the most humbling thing. The people I'm sitting in the same room with will eventually spread far and impact the world for the kingdom of God.
On one of the first days, Catrina Henderson, principal at the Hills campus gave a message titled 'When in Rome' that carried some truths that are still resonating in my heart and mind.
When you're in "Rome" - somewhere new, unfamiliar, exciting and adventurous - there are few postures to take, so that you get don't leave without getting the most out of your experience. It's was so simple yet profound and it inspired me to jot some goals down.
Here are some of the goals I'm aiming towards:
1. I will pursue every opportunity in some way - it is worth it.
2. I will not compare - it's pointless. Every detail about my journey is unique.
3. I'll try things I've never tried before - I'll fail some, succeed others.
4. Some things in my life can and will be temporary - I will live accordingly.
5. I won't stop getting overwhelmed that I get to follow the call of God on my life.
6. The mundane will never get too boring in my eyes.
7. There is nothing too small that I won't be thankful for.
8. I choose to live an accounted life. Therefore, I will document the journey.
9. I will learn from anyone who is willing to teach me something - even in unlikely places.
10. I won't leave until I've been, seen and done all I can be, see and do.
