  1. FeIn the thick if my middle management years, mourning the daycare dilemma, a wise mentor asked me if “Best Hotel Manager” was what I wanted written on my tombstone. Um, no. Within 12 mos., I was home with my kids, struggling to pay the bills, taking odd jobs at night…but I only regret not doing it sooner.
    Same with writing. My youngest just came to tell us he wanted to pursue the rest of his college athletic eligibility after a demoralizing experience with his last coach. He said it was partly from seeing me face my fear of failing at thus writing thing…if we fail…and I bet we won’t…it won’t be because we didn’t try. Thank you for sharing this…it’s a great question…my answers are: mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend and writer! Can’t wait to read your book πŸ™‚

    • Our society has taught us to focus on money and damned the rest. So we stifle our true voices and instead follow the one saying what we think we’re supposed to say. We’re the luck ones, realizing it before it was too late.

      I can’t wait to read my book either. πŸ™‚ Thanks Suzanne!
