Are you familiar with Tara Mohr?
She is an author, creator, teacher, wife and mother and an expert on women's leadership and well-being.
The messages she creates for working women (and working moms) are always filled with empowerment, grace and love.
And now more than ever, all of us working moms can use as much of that as we can get!
This quote from her book, "Playing Big: Practical Wisdom for Women Who Want to Speak Up, Create and Lead," is an important reminder.
Having lived through a year (like all of you) that forced so much to be put on hold, adapted or completely scraped, I have felt too often like I have been playing small.
Excuses, rationales and sound reasoning will explain why. But Tara's quote reminds me that nothing has been lost. Nothing has been wasted.
Her words of grace come as relief for me. And I feel the hope woven through her message.
I hope you feel it too.
