LESSON #29: BE FLEXIBLE
Awwwwee to be flexible! When speakers cancel on you the week of the event, when the entire event runs late and you have to scrap breakout sessions you LEARN FLEXIBILITY! There is no time to dwell on what has gone wrong, all you can do is move on to the oh so many things that are going RIGHT! There were so many wonderful moments had in moments that did not even exists in the original event run of the show. For instance the bullying breakout session gave the adults in the room an incredible insight into what our young girls are going through including suicidal thoughts in elementary school, to struggles with gender identity and believe it or not in 2015 disputes on skin tone. If the schedule had not been thrown off, we wouldn’t have scratched the surface to ultimately offer solutions to some of the girls most concerning issues with bullying. Don’t get so stuck on how a situation should be that you miss, how beautiful it is!
