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… Continue Reading →

Some Days, It’s Daylight Savoring Time

I woke this morning, as I sometimes do, to the feeling of a presence standing near my bedside.  As my eyes slowly opened and adjusted to the dark, I saw the faint outline of my son.  I asked if he was okay.  No.  Bad dream.  I could tell it had really shaken him.  I said,… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

Some Days, We Pay It Forward

Sitting in the room, surrounded by the brightest women from the biggest law firms and some of the most accomplished and acclaimed General Counsel, I’m struck by the energy, the power and the wisdom.  It’s palpable. Ms. JD’s LaddHer Up retreat brings together women law firm associates in their first six years of practice –… Continue Reading →

Some Days, We Remember the Most Important Thing

“The most important thing is remembering the most important thing.” – Suzuki Roshi Earlier this year, I made a commitment to myself.  To remember the most important thing.  It’s remarkable how easy it is to forget… So many things vying for your attention and your time.  So many shoulds.  Even the legitimate ones.  So many… Continue Reading →

Some Days, We Have to See What’s Not There

What is vision, but a daydream?  We grow up and add structure, new words like “pillars” and various acronyms but, at its heart, is the dream.  Yet, we often talk about being a dreamer like it is a bad thing.  Unrealistic.  Unprofessional.  Untethered. I am a dreamer.  A daydream believer.  And, I have come to… Continue Reading →

Some Days, We Come Full Circle

London.  The city where I fell in love with retail (and my partner…).  The city where I became fascinated with corporate law and walking cities, paving the way for the life and career that lay ahead of me.  The city where, almost twenty years later, I just celebrated the opening of my company’s first international… Continue Reading →

Some Days, The Storm Comes

We were in paradise when the storm came.  Swimming in crystal clear, turquoise water.  Watching fish dance in their weightless wonderland.  Turtles frolicking to and fro.  The salty sea, a soothing salve for sun-kissed skin.  Our last day in a land surrounded by endless sea and sky, never wanting it to end.  Even the clouds… Continue Reading →

Some Days, We Get Real

Let’s be real for a moment.  This sh!t is hard.  Which sh!t?  All the sh!t.  Be honest.  Am I right? Some days, the world tells us that we should have it all together.  But the reality is, we usually don’t.  I’m not being hard on myself (or yourself).  It’s just the truth.  I fail at… Continue Reading →
