“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.” ~ Seneca the Younger. When I began sending these daily wellbeing messages over a year ago, the world was in a scary, precarious place. We knew a terrible storm was coming, but had no idea how bad it would be or how to protect ourselves and our loved ones. My goal was to find a way to connect and support each other as we were plunged into

“By far the biggest mistake people make when trying to change careers is to delay taking the first step until they have settled on a destination.” ~ Herminia Ibarra in Working Identity. True story of my friend’s brother: he decided at a young age he wanted to be a doctor.

Sending out quotes was my way of trying to make a

Since the structure of our days has changed so dramatically over the past few months, many (myself included!) are overwhelmed by the number of decisions we face. Whether it’s how to structure working from home, exploring how to pursue causes that matter to us, or weighing options for staying at home with re-emerging outward again, we are flooded with choices to make, and can have trouble distinguishing between what’s an important decision and what really

I feel the work I do (or did) has little impact and would like to feel that my work makes more of a difference.

I had yet another tech issue, was making no progress, knew I needed help, and melted into a puddle. I took a step back and asked myself: Why do computer problems make me want to weep?
