Some Days, We Are In Transition

I love this time of year.  For many reasons.  One big part of this is that it is a time of transition.  Transition into the holiday season (my favorite).  The winter solstice taking us from darker and darker days to increasing light.  Transition into the new year.  New beginnings.  Possibility.  My career transitions have always...

Some Days, I Live to Work

I’ve often heard the refrain “Work to live.  Don’t live to work.”  While there is a lot in it that I can agree with, I’ve often heard it in response to me voicing my dreams of my Some Days and coupled with the message that, to aspire to find inspiration, joy and fulfillment in your...
