today I'm grateful for

sweet nothings in Whistler Village
What do you want?
I want to travel. I want to fall in love again. I want a Chloe purse. I want a Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress. I want a lot of material things, but I also really want to make a difference. From the car seat to the swivel chair, inherently humans meet resistance in pursuit of want.
I could not tell you the number of times I’ve visualized the bull, me grabbing it by the horns and riding off into the sunset. The older I am, the more daunting this journey gets. I am not afraid of wrong turns (hell, I love a good ‘ol bump in the road) but how close the destination feels. I’ve been able to arrive at this place of contentment solely because of the people I’ve met en route. Their wisdom has taught me about communication, goal setting, active listening and how to manifest my strengths into strong leadership.
Today I am excited to be the kind of leader people want to follow. I want to be consistent. I want to be fun. I want to be accessible. I want to be a stand for my team and their goals.
Tomorrow I want to take these learnings and recreate them. I want authentic conversations to ignite feelings of self-worth and empower a new community.
