Last night as I was finishing up my rough manuscript,
I thought about the subtitle of my new book,
Shae's Story: A Woman's Transformation:
And I thought about my own transformation,
Especially this decade,
So much has happened,
I lost my mother,
Released my children from the nest, freely,
Wrote a few books,
Got my spiritual house in order,
Now I once again sit on the cusp of transformation,
Understanding that a lot of what I have been doing has been simply,
A time consuming expenditure of precious time,
And while I would do most of the things I have done, the same way,
There are many things I have learned that I need to do differently,
And in different ways,
In order to bring different, better results...
Last month,
I was in Atlanta, having lunch with a friend,
We were talking about our work journey,
All that we had been through,
The promotions, the job changes,
The people who have come and gone,
I looked into her serene, beautiful, fifty-something face,
She smiled, I smiled,
And she said something that touched me and probably propelled me in some way,
She said, "Isn't it nice to be in this place where it is no longer about schmoozing, networking or proving...where we can simply do our best work and go home at the end of the day to men who love us, knowing our kids are doing their own thing?"
My exact words were,
"Yes ma'am, it really doesn't get much better than that, let's allow the youngsters to do it!"
We both looked at the significantly younger woman sitting with us,
She was smiling, ready to take it on....
