So far, since arriving here in September to work for The Wave Youth, I’ve already learnt so much about myself!
I’ve learnt that I really would love to be a worship leader some day, which has definitely been more of just a pipe-dream for a long time now…
I'm learning to realise that dreaming big isn't only for those who have their possible life journeys already mapped out in front of them by their own ideas.
I’ve realised that I don't have to keep striving to live up to a certain standard in order for my work colleagues to accept me for who I am, this is something that I’ve found incredibly difficult for a long time.
Lastly, I’ve also found over this clearly God-given time that there really is a space for me here;
I may not be very good at certain activities that others in my team excel at, but being there for the teenage girls in my youth groups really has been a specific spot for me to fill ever since the previous female youth leader/role model said her goodbyes. I can really relate to the fact that the girls in my groups more than likely wouldn't want to go to much older male leaders to talk through some of their thoughts…
I certainly know that I wouldn't have wanted to do something like that at their age!Overall, I’m incredibly thankful that God has brought me here at such a perfect time as this!
