A big professional success today!
« on: August 06, 2015, 05:19:19 PM »
Since Saturday, I have been in Los Angeles for work. Basically, my employer is in a high dollar lawsuit and I am one of two corporate witnesses. I had a lot of nervousness and let's face it, straight up fear that widda brain would kick in and I would mess it all up. As someone that tears apart the house looking for keys that are in her hand, I think it is a reasonable fear! This morning I took the stand and nailed it. No widda brain at all! I am relieved and even proud I was able to do it so I had to share with my wid family. :)
On particularly rough days when I'm sure I can't possibly endure, I like to remind myself that my track record for getting through bad days so far is 100% and that's pretty good. - Unknown

I found out today the verdict was finally handed down and we won. Even though I am on vacation, I've been peeking at my work email watching the atta girls roll in. I feel really great about this!

Congrats Jess!!
I don't want it to be his legacy that his death destroyed me.
I need to honour his life by rebuilding my life.
