“Life happens for us, not to us.” -Anonymous
I came across this quote somewhere in the world of Twitter and haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. It couldn’t be more true! While some days are tough, in general, and you think “How could this happen to me?”, you have got to look at what happened for you in order to get there.
One example is this internship. While some moments can be tough with all the new learning experiences crashing in at once, more times than not, there is no doubt that every second of it is happening for all of us to make us stronger humans after the 16 weeks!
Already, in the 2.5 weeks I have been with Bamboo Skateboards, I have learned better time management, better ways of communication, benefits of different sizes and builds of skateboards, and am gaining a stronger work ethic everyday. If this experience was happening TO me, I wouldn’t be learning anything and I would be left right where I was when I started. No, I am having way too good of a time and learning way too much for it not to be happening FOR me.
