Taking Off the Tiara

Facing fears, learning lessons, growing up

I’m learning to be a leader when others are grieving. I show my children and family how important it is to acknowledge another person’s loss.From my own experience, I know how much I appreciated hearing a simple “Sorry for your loss.” Although I didn’t mean to, I noticed who stayed silent.

I need to stop giving my kids the stink eye and be pleasant & present instead. May require wine.

A friend recently offered me a career opportunity of a lifetime. My first reaction was old-school princess: Although she offered me a golden goose on a silver platter, I wrinkled my nose because the goose wasn’t wearing a bow tie. (Really, I wrinkled my nose because it would be a major career change and I fear failure.)I need to work on my attitude of gratitude and know that this opportunity will help me grow and learn so much.
