She Told Me to Stay Single

In a room filled with the chatter of over 200 people, I only heard her words. The crowd was muted by a truth, her truth, that she spoke to me. This year has been filled with the most vivid memories. It’s almost like my brain took panoramic snap shots of important moments of the year. Are…

Tired, Worn Eyes

I keep seeing her eyes. They were tired, worn and weak. There was so much emotion behind them. I could only imagine she expressed her emotions alone and in silence. If she expressed them at all? I stood in silence as people offered advice to her. Something weighed so heavily on her and I could visibly see it. It was…

New Strength

This week has been very, very busy and challenging. I haven’t had a lot of me time since I have been on location. Each day I noticed myself getting irritated with aspects of my work environment.

My new personal year has begun and already everything feels different. I am ready and energized for what’s next. Last year was incredibly hard, but it lead to so much growth and wisdom. I have a deep sense of happiness that I have never known. When I was a girl I wanted to be a…

In Good Company

A few weeks ago I attended a business woman’s mentoring event. As I drove to the location and approached the doors of the event there was no sense of nervousness that came over me. It wasn’t until I entered the room that I felt a bit nervous. Sticking to my old habits, I quickly found…
