The Perfect Exit – 3 Tips for Leaving Your Job on a High

on February 4, 2018

Friday was the day! My last day at Walt Disney Imagineering. It was another good one too—only the last one! After deciding to pursue my passion to write and create to full time, I put my notice into Disney earlier this month. I’ve been blessed with support and encouragement and when I drove off the lot it felt like the perfect ending to that chapter. I was relaxed and at peace. My farewells were positive. I hugged all whom I needed to hug, I thanked all I needed to thank, I wrapped up the loose ends, I prepped for the new person, and I even left them a little gift for their first day. Then I did a last round… Continue Reading

Day One or One day?

This year, my list seems incredibly long, but there is nothing like having that one person who makes your soul blossom no matter what is… Continue Reading

A Year of Gratitude

Join Me in a Year of Gratitude

I am a person who always strives to be better, as I’m sure most of you are. But ongoing growth requires new and different practices for me. And there’s always so many things to work on it can be overwhelming. So I decided to pick one thing for the year and delve deep into the study and practice of it. It’s sort of my theme for the year, and next year I can pick something new. This, as you’ve guessed from the title of my blog, is all about gratitude. I’m giving it a whole year of focus because I really want this practice to go beyond habit to integrate and transform in who I am at my core, and become… Continue Reading
