What Recharges You?

When I got to 5:00pm on Friday, I had a bit of a panic moment. I had so much that I could do, but my brain just wasn’t cooperating. For a moment I thought about pushing through, but I realized that I probably wouldn’t be productive. So I made the choice to log-off and decided to do everything in my power to go into the office on Monday feeling refreshed and ready for the week ahead. [Read more…]

Things I Learned This Week

Good Morning!

This week I traveled to Napa Valley for a women in technology conference and am coming home inspired after getting out of my usual routine. I learned a lot though many great conversations and the trip gave me the extra boost I need to be ready for the next steps in my career.

I’ve always been someone who love learning and exploring new things. Before I met Rich (eight years ago today), I used to say that the main characteristic that I wanted in a husband was that he was not picky when it came to food, but I think what I wanted was someone who would want to continue to try new things. Despite how opposite we may be, I think the reason why we work is because we share the same values and are always up to learn something new. It’s the foundation of our relationship and I’m glad we have that as the foundation of our family.

I learned a lot new week and I thought I would share some of these things with you today. [Read more…]

A Dose of Gratitude

Good Evening!

I’m stopping in this evening to share a little dose of gratitude. If you’ve reading my blog for a long time, you know that I used to do what I called “Take Time Tuesday” where I would share things I was grateful for every week.

It’s been awhile since I wrote a gratitude post and quite frankly I have not been thinking much about gratitude in my day to day life. I’ve been feeling “off” and a little lost, so as always start by taking stock of my life through the lens of gratitude. [Read more…]

Finding Contentment in Rest

For the past few weeks I’ve been feeling very off and unmotivated, so when the first of the month came around I did not have my usual gusto to set goals. But then life happened and inspired me to take the action I need to take in order to take care of myself. This month, my goal is the rest.
