I believe I am always learning. It is a relief to me to say this to myself and to the world. This is fluid, you know. This is a process, and that’s what I have learned over the years. I am always in process.

I have been able take the difficult and traumatizing experience of losing my job and career and turned it into a new career path. I was able to see that I am always learning and improving. I don’t need to be perfect.
I can learn, grow and share the knowledge that I have gained. I can share my hope. What I can do is be aware of my needs. I can advocate for myself and help others. We all have the ability to speak up for what is best for us. As the process unfolds, so do we learn and grow.
