Monday Moxie: Inspirations from INA by Greta Schraer

Greta Schraer the 2010 INA Nanny of the Year shares with us her inspirations from the 2010 INA Conference.

On her High 5 Friday Cincy Nanny Blog, Greta writes:

Wheeew! I am a person that lives for purpose. I am not sure if it's just how I was born, if it's because of my faith or because I have seen those close to me make bad choices that in turn affect those around them. Whatever the reason is, I decided long ago, to live every day to the fullest. I am certain that no "reason for living" or "purpose" is better than another, all I know is that we have individual, unique and beautiful giftings to share with our circle of influence. Sometimes I do get off track, and I wonder, "should I be doing THIS thing like THAT person?" Then a voice inside me reminds me that all I have to be is what I was made to be.
What a relief!
What a challenge.
Have you felt that the deep knowing that if you don't accomplish the secret desire in your head... then it will never be? What could be a legendary, has the possibility of never happening.
{You: "I thought I was reading a Nanny Blog?" Me: Hang in there I hope to be going somewhere with what seems like pointless babble}.
I love to be challenged. I wish I had 3 Sundays a week to sit and read and ponder. To question. To Dream. That is why when an educational event comes along, I am psyched. When the workshops are about things my heart is passionate about, my spirit is enlightened and I smile a little bit wider. I love to learn. Go ahead and say it..."dork!"
This past week, I went to the annual International Nanny Association Conference in San Francisco! This was my 2nd conference and I was so excited to have 3 more Professional Nannies from Cincinnati joining me this year. When I attended last year, I was challenged by a keynote speaker and my peers, "What do you have to give?". I knew that I had the knowledge of this Nanny world, that so many in my city did not know of. I had the desire to go find the Nannies and give them them information, resources, and community that they didn't even know they needed. To have a few of these Nannies now join me at conference, feels like a full circle moment.
