I have no opinion on outside issues–that I care to discuss in my blog. Yes, I’ve chosen sides in the election and have strong feelings about the financial crisis, but I’m going to spare you the details. In fact, I rarely get into conversations about either realm. It’s not a good use of my time, energy or brainpower. I’m not burying my head in the sand. I read the paper daily, catch the headlines on the news and get back to work.
I know that I’m on a mission in my life. My greatest value right now is to stay focused on my work of leading women to success in their chosen arena. Twenty years ago my main pursuit was raising a family. Ten years from now it may be something entirely different.
I believe I need to stay where my feet are and do the work in front of me. I recognize that others are called to action, and I respect and admire that. I want to be a voice in favor of not getting swept up. I’ve received too many impassioned emails that are preaching to the choir I’m in. I delete them.
I love what I do. I love the people I work with. I love my family, my community, my country. Contributing as I do feels like my highest calling. My hope is that each of you finds peace in your chosen role.
