First off, thank you to the positive responses and feedback to my last post. It was scary to hit publish on it, but the outpouring of love and support made it completely worth sharing. It feels like an awakening, like I can only grow from here on out.
This week has been heavily focused on catching up on work (we had a company off-site last week in Charleston), and while the off-sites are always incredibly productive, I always feel like I have to catch up on the rest of my life when I return home. It was a great start to the new year though, being able to discuss team goals, individual goals, and where we want to be in the future. I came home feeling revitalized and ready to buckle down on what’s important to me.
I feel like my eyes are more open than they’ve ever been before. I feel enlightened after some of the conversations I’ve had recently, the struggles I’ve overcome, and the people I’ve met. I’m incredibly grateful to have met some people who confide in me with their deepest struggles. It gives me perspective that challenges my own way of thinking, and for that I am humbled and honored.
Yesterday was a calm and serene day in Nashville. It felt like spring with the warm, wet air and the birds chirping outside. That feeling and those sounds always bring me comfort that new things are coming. I love sensing the arrival of new seasons. Steve and I went down to Shelby Park at the end of our street to soak up the Tennessee warmth before it rained again.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend ahead.
