Back to the Future

Three months after starting a new job, it is already quite an odyssey. I am in the other side of the bay, however, I am not stranger to Oakland, where I had worked previously before being laid off in 2009. It is pretty much picking up where I left off when I thought I was forging a path forward with a nonprofit whose mission is to end homelessness.


Now I have reinvented myself this time in a contracts management role with an architectural firm. How funny my father can’t even keep up with my career–he tells people I’m now an architect, my journalism aspirations effectively upended.


If the last nine years have taught me anything, it’s openness, forgiveness, kindness and joy. The universe will often respond in kind, if I change the energy inside me away from frustration, anxiety and sorrow.


So here’s to another year, and this time taking things to the next level, playing more offense than defense, and, dare I say, believing in unicorns.

    Happy 2018.
    Be happy and who you are indeed! For living life on your own terms is far more satisfying than trying to do that using someone else’s yardstick!
