I don’t know about you all, but I’ve been spending quite a bit of time lately taking stock of where I am professionally – looking at the places where I’d like to improve, searching for new experiences and opportunities that will challenge me while allowing me to keep the best things about my position and lifestyle. As a teacher’s kid (mom taught English, dad was the French teacher and the football coach), the concept of being finished never really stuck – there were always more things to try, to learn, new experiences to seek out. And, yes, sometimes there were huge ugly messes to be made…but sometimes after a few of those messes something really wonderful rose from the ashes.
So, in that spirit, I’m wishing you a 2013 with a truly spectacular phoenix (or more – deny yourself nothing in a dream, right?) and as little mess to clean up as can possibly be managed. Here’s to invigorating newness, and digging down to do the work.
I’ll be back after the first of the year with more articles and profiles. Stay tuned! And thank you for stopping by this year – I appreciate it very much.
