I decided to try something different. I wanted to take a look back to see what I was doing last year at this time. Blogs are an amazing way to take a snap shot in time. At this time last year, my blog was still in its infancy and my words were a little dry. Don’t get me wrong, I have always had good stuff to share. So here we go…this is what I posted 9/24/2011. (My Exact Post) Start…..
I thought the title for today’s post was so appropriate. I was walking down the street at my new site here in sunny Kurkuk, Iraq. Don’t worry I am on a military installation. Also keep in mind that I only got to this site a couple of days ago. Back to the story. There were people stopping me and yelling out of cars at me. These were people that I have met over the years in different places. Some of them I met in Afghanistan. As I was walking yesterday and this happened, I said to myself “there is another one of my fans”.
I only said it to myself, but I also thought to myself how conceded that would have seem to someone if I had said it out loud. As I walked on, I recognized that there are so many people around me that support me in different ways. There are my family that help with the things I need done at home and support my decision to work here overseas. There are the people I work with that support me by being loyal and working hard so WE look good. Then there are just the ordinary, extraordinary people that I meet everyday.
There is a fan club out there for everyone. You have one even if you don’t know it. Take a minute to think about it.
You will be surprised!

I was just about to lose my job, but unknowingly to me, I was also a few days away from being made a job offer for my current job. It was a time of uncertainty for me, but I never thought that I would be jobless, not at all.
I would love to hear what you were doing a year ago on for this Wednesday Rewind. Go ahead lets hear it. 🙂
