I Said Good-Bye, I Said Hello

A year ago today, I said my goodbyes to dear colleagues, retired and walked out of the corporate office I had worked in for 20 years. I said hello to reinvention, and an exhilarating new chapter.  Here are 10 things I’ve specifically said “Hello” to since Feb. 15, 2019 –

  1. Going to the Library – read 2x more books than any year in my adult life
  2. Packing lunches for my kids – including goofy notes
  3. Getting in and out of Costco in 8 minutes – Pro tip: go when they open on Tuesday
  4. Sleeping in beyond 5 a.m.!
  5. Developing on point media training – in yoga pants and my new cat slippers
  6. Making numerous appearances at North Central High School to help
  7. Really getting to know my kids’ friends when come over after school
  8. Visiting my parents – saw Mom and Dad more than ever
  9. Discovering Pinterest as I plan my kids’ graduation open houses – Class of 21 and 22!
  10. Using my Passion Planner to schedule my days – double duty as this leather-bound planner serves as a journal

What are you saying hello to now?  Name it, embrace it, enjoy it.
