Some days I LOVE my job. There are other days when I am just like everyone else and find it tough to do this job. I think that is when I need to remember this and realize that what so many of us really need and want is to have someone there to listen to us, hold our hand when we need it and feel that we are being heard above the noise of life.
Often in life those of us that have been in any type of leadership roles will find ourselves being in charge. After years of leading large groups of teenagers and adults in fundraising events and other activities, it was hard to "reel" that in when I was no longer doing that.
It is amazing the peace we can find when we realize that we don't have to be what we have always been. We can just be ourselves. And THAT is when we can best help ourselves and others!
