Grounded in Gratitude

This week our team received heartfelt feedback that profoundly moved us and accurately represented who we are and what we strive for on a daily basis. I was standing in the waiting room talking to an elderly man who visited the suite. He briefly left the office and returned with a book. Then he said to me, “I have three words for you ‘the good life’ and handed me the book. He proceeded to say that I was living it {the good life} and that I needed to read the chapter on friendship. He felt the office reflected deep adult friendships which he thought were hard to come by and built on respect, loyalty, trust, and commonality. Moreover, that our space represented humanity and humility.

After he left, we all looked at each other, moved, in silence. No amount of money in the world could ever reflect the success we have achieved as women in this office. I am so proud of my girls and to be leading the way in the darkness of night. They, individually and collectively, are the most remarkable women and more than I could ever be.

The chapter on friendship says this: friendship is a mutual service based on something more elevated; on a community of feeling. Today, I realized that I have accomplished what I was born to do, and the rest is just, well the rest is the freedom to go unimagined places.

With the utmost gratitude,
