Happy MLK Jr Day

I try to make MLK day each year a day of service and reflection and with my family — what about you — what do you do on MLK Day?  Do you get the day off at work — and if not, do you try to take it off ? If not, no worries — remember I have a background in retail and I know what its like to work on days that others have off.

Here are a few of my favorite MLK quotes.

The Year of Renew

RENEW (1)

Its been a minute, eh?

I’ve been pretty quiet the last 2 years, but changed more than ever — and in many ways more passionate about HR than I ever have been — but also I’ve discovered that I’m really passionate about other things too (all things kid and motherhood related).

Generally, each December I would neatly create 3-5 clear goals and objectives to help guide my year. After I had my child — that just didn’t feel right anymore — and it didn’t work for me like it used to. So for the last two years — no annual resolutions for me. Instead … I decided I wanted to “simply” and just create a word to reflect and act on. Being new — its taken me almost 2 weeks to find the one word — and I’m comfortable with “RENEW.”

When I think about what “renew” means and all that I was trying to make goals around, I think that they two really line up . I’mm not sure what that all means in practice — but I’m looking forward to figuring it out!
