Five on Friday

Hello Strangers!

I come and go just like good restaurants in Miami…if you
live in South Florida you will definitely understand this reference…in the
mean time…let’s talk.

Not sure that I have any earth shattering “Five on
Friday” reads for you, but I have six things on my mind to share on this

1. Life hasn’t been easy… there’s been a lot of pain, too
much loss to even comprehend. A very dear friend of mine is no longer with us,
and I still can’t wrap my head around it…sadness is unbearable.

2. I was out of town a few weekends ago and while walking
the streets of a city very dear to my heart a thought came to me….”I do
not belong to the city where I live now”…I am not sure what city I
belong to, but certainly not where I am now.

3. My best sleeping baby has turned into an insomniac toddler.
And I’ve been following in her footsteps. A vicious cycle that I don’t know how
to break.

4. Someone recently asked me how do I feel about being a
working mom…The best thing is that being at work is really rewarding for me
on a personal level. I feel challenged and smart and ready to kick ass. I love
the example it sets for Kiki….I hope she sees a strong woman who has a life
and enjoys it.  The hardest thing is
balance. I am not sure what balance is…especially not today when I am doing
all of this on my own…..urgh, I think I hate word balance. Balance, balance,
balance. My work brings me tremendous joy and I have to work to balance that
with the joy my family brings. I think that just about sums it about…

5. Parenting…it’s a tough job and there are days when I
think I won’t make it, and then she smiles at me and puts her hands around me,
and I know it’s all worth it.

6. I can’t say enough about the advice given here: 15 CareerTips from Smart Women

Well, this is all I have for this Friday….spoken from my

Have a wonderful weekend!
