The learning in leaving

Today was my last day at my current job and I’m moving on to a new place. Again. I say it like that because sometimes that is how it feels. “You are changing jobs AGAIN?!” “Didn’t you just get a new job?” I did. I have only been at my current job for 14 months […]

The Finish: Fitness Challenge Six Weeks

I finished the Fitness Challenge. Been there. Done that. I even got the t-shirt! I feel great. I’d like to thank my long-suffering husband Derek.

I love my husband and my dog and my family and everything personal in my life. I don’t love my professional life. […]

Today is the kind of day…

Today is the kind of day in which my frustrations overshadow my inspiration, the pressure squeezes out my happiness and the trouble of the day erases any smile from my face. Today is the kind of day in which I wish I would have spent a little more time enjoying those 3 months I was unemployed […]
