I just got the most awesome message from my friend Nicole H. She and I were in a "high potential leadership" course together a few years ago and really hit it off. At the time, I was just getting ready to try snowboarding for the first time in Steamboat, and was interested in surfing. She already loved both. Today she said:
"This. Is. You. I've "run away" to Las Olas 3 different times in my life and came back with a healed heart every time."
And as far as my career search, she said, "Go with your gut. Follow your heart. Follow your dreams. Failure is always an option...but fear shouldn't be. There was a reason you had that trip booked. GO BE AMAZING!"
MADE. MY. DAY. :)
