Thriving for half a century
Today, I celebrate thriving for half a century. Wow. What a ride it has been! These 50 years have been marked by personal and professional milestones. An affirmation that I remind myself of, that has stuck with me over the years, and that I want to share with all of you today is: one wave at a time.
I know I am not alone when I say that life has dealt me some cards that are less pleasant than her others. Professional, personal, and health hurdles have often brought me to my knees, but I have not come so far only to come so far! With the proper support system, we can overcome anything that life throws at us.
My new hobby, wakesurf, has taught me that you can only ride one wave at a time – even when you think you can or should take on more. Taking it slow also gives us room to look around and find something to be grateful for even during hard days.
