I’ve been trying to figure out a creative or elegant way to say this, but each time I dip into my mental well of words and sentences, the bucket comes up empty. So here it is.
I won an award this weekend.
I am the Joseph Priestly District’s Outstanding Young Adult Leader of the Year. (The JPD is the Unitarian Universalist district in which I live). It’s kind of a kick to win an award for doing something I love (like organizing young adult communities).
I realize for those of you out there who don’t do the whole church thing, this could appear to be pretty darn dorky. And yet, concern over judgement or censure is not enough to stop me from from sharing, as I’m still pretty tickled.
The awards were presented yesterday at the JPD annual meeting, in a session I very nearly skipped. Thankfully, someone in the know saw me wandering around, about to make my break, and gently bullied me into attending the session. I’ve never been so happy to have been bullied in my life.
I’ve come to the conclusion that there should be more awards in life. It’s a fun experience.
