I just wanted to take a minute to thank you personally for all of your wisdom, encouragement, and advice that you shared with us at Junior League. I attended the event not knowing what to expect and with no real expectations, just this desire to start getting serious about making my life what I want it to be. I left feeling so uplifted by your words, I know I was meant to be there that morning!
I think one of the most profound pieces of wisdom you shared was that unveiling our “purpose” or true gift should be easy! Instead of embarking on a life long journey to discover what our talents are, it’s more about what feels natural and easy. Humans make things so much harder than they need to be some times by overthinking what we should leave to gut instinct. I do a pretty good job of trusting my gut in relationships and friendships but I never thought about applying that to my professional life, too!
Aside from sharing our name, I also was an English major, and coincidentally enough am from Columbia, SC! I was very inspired by everything you shared with us and truly admire your grace, intelligence, candor and most of all that you’re a powerful, independent, successful woman bad ass! Looking forward to finding a way to utilize my strengths!
