We are halfway through the PFO year and I wanted to share about the journey so far, what I’ve learned, and how PFO has impacted me. It would be important to first know where I started. Some key words that would describe me before PFO would be: shy, cynical, and not a “people” person. When I joined PFO I didn’t really have any expectations, except, that I wanted to learn who I was, and how I could give of that? Since joining PFO I can say that I have begun the journey of learning who I am, and how I can give of that. It isn’t something you can learn overnight, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t serve while you’re figuring it out. PFO has taught me how to love myself and others more. One of the most important things that PFO has taught me is that humanity is a team. While it may be the case that not everyone is working together, we can still get somewhere if people try. I have learned how best to accept myself and other people. In order to foster a healthy relationship you must first accept yourself before accepting others. You often see in others what you see in yourself, therefore shifting your self image can help you make more friends. These are only a few of the things that PFO has taught me and I hope to learn many more. I am infinitely grateful for the opportunity to be a part of such an amazing organization.
