Op-por-tu-ni-ty– a situation or condition favorable for attainment of a goal,a good position, chance, or prospect, as for advancement or success. This is the definition that comes straight out of the dictionary. However, the meaning can have different references, understanding, and attachments depending on how we see it. This is exactly what has been in my thoughts as I strive to empower, support, and instruct. It has come up in recent discussion as I am currently working with several MSW students who are at the end of their program requirements, set to transition into opportunity. What will this transition look like? What opportunities will present themselves? How can I cope with the uncertain and unknown? Will I be ready? These are just some of the questions that come up as one prepares to transition into opportunity. A process that can provide challenge, learning, and much needed growth!
