As far as I know all my friends in Boston are safe. But scrolling through all the tragic news stories and hearing about the people that are still missing, I can’t help but feel a bit heavy hearted. This isn’t a great time of year for me as I’m remembering my father, who I last saw on Marathon Monday 2006. But this… this did make me smile. Let’s not forget the light.

I’m in NYC right now in a pretty nifty hotel room. Tomorrow I’m going to participate in an incredible opportunity that has the power to affect a lot of women out there. And, for once, I’m not saying “how did I get here”… because I know how I got here. I have some amazing friends, colleagues, and acquaintances (yes, the latter counts immensely). I’ve worked hard. I’ve helped build communities. I’ve had pretty awesome bosses like Dave that have encouraged me along my professional career. And I’ve realized that helping people light their candles, will never extinguish my own light.
I hope you take some moments this week to soak it all in, no matter how hard you’re working.
Anyway, no long post here. Just wanted to take a moment. See ya on the flip side.
