I am blowing the dust off the blog today. I have been buried in an immense project at my day job that has been all consuming. I’m finally coming for air. I got to do writing new procedures and training as part of this project. A dear friend reminded me that I’m a storyteller. That is my calling, not the title on my business card. 

Today I had the privilege of talking to a former employee of mine who reminded me how telling him a story about what I saw in him made him change his mindset. I saw intelligence and leadership that needed to be developed and nurtured. Thank you A for reminding me of the importance of seeing yourself as others see you and not listening to the stories we tell ourselves that just aren’t true. As you reminded me of how I challenged you to grow as a leader, you gave me the insight that this current leader needed to hear. For that I’m grateful. 

About tranquilamama

Juggling parenthood, housework and working outside the home in the corporate world with my wonderful husband. Mom to 2 beautiful girls. PPD and PPA survivor. The title of my blog is after a phrase that was repeated to me in Spain during my semester abroad in college. It roughly translates to relax and calm down. Trying to tame my inner perfectionist and just be a good enough mom.
