Not all that wander are lost. I felt lost at the beginning of the year; where am I going? What’s my purpose? What will be my legacy?

It’s a scary process to really look inside yourself, past all the expectations of people around you, past the disappointment if you fail, and past the stereotypes of working moms. I hated that I had to choose between being really and truly available for my family and being away.

I have been reflecting on the last five months in particular. I am thankful this year happened. I am grateful to be in an industry of such talent; especially the women that make up the Professional Women in Building and the young talent of the Young Leaders Council.

I am grateful that my family can rely on me for sick days, days off, cheering from the stands and volunteering. I am happier.

I am thankful that companies have put their trust in me as their communications partner. I am motivated.

As I am fueling up on black coffee, I am excited about 2018. Before I can move forward, I appreciate the past – the screw-ups, the accomplishments and the growth. Let the fire inside you be the light that guides you.
