Have you ever sat down knowing you want to write, but not quite sure what you want to write? I’m there. I’ve been working a lot of hours over the past four weeks, and traveling for business, so right now, my brain just feels like it needs to unload.
While I’m not going to puke a bunch of senseless information here, I’ll share there’s been a lot going on. I just got back from Los Angeles with the Toyota Women Influencer Network. I left the program to be their Community Manager and have loved every moment of it. Taking care and guiding the 50 women in that program is part of my responsibilities and I wouldn’t change what I’m doing for anything in the world. I’m extremely grateful to Clever Girls Collectivefor taking a chance on me and allowing me to step into this role.and the rest of the
Over dinner in Hermosa Beach at Chef Melba’s Bistro (a must stop if you are in Hermosa), I sat with Dave Nordstrom, Sr. VP of Digital/Social for Toyota and the lovely Kitty Bradshaw, a TWIN member. We had a fabulous conversation not only about social media, but life. Dave and I discussed Pinterest and Google+ strategy, and then Kitty asked me some deep questions about my ten year plan. Then Dave chimed in wanting to know why I did what I did and why.
Love. I love the challenge. I love how nothing is the same day in and day out. And I love bringing two different sets of ideas together, along with the right people for the job, and making something beautiful and whole. A cohesive plan that creates something amazing.
On the other hand, I couldn’t answer Kitty. I didn’t have the answer myself. I still don’t have it. But Kitty has me thinking. Hard. So does Cat. She asked me a similar question the next day as we walked for coffee.
Where do I see myself? I’d love to say I see myself in a fairy godmother position, waving my magic wand, and fixing things all over the world. But I can’t fix things for people. What I can do is make experiences a reality. I can help guide people to where they need to be. I can tell them what they need to do to find their path to success.
But I have to figure out what position that puts me in and that’s hard. I’ve always focused on making things amazing for people. I get them to act. And I get them to live up to their potential.
Yet, I ask myself am I living up to my potential. Wondering where I’ll be in 10 years and asking myself if that pattern of thought is enough to keep me happy.
I don’t know, but I do know it’s worth me making time to care for me and figure out the path my dreams point me.
