Weekly Reflection 2019 – 23

Magic I Saw this Week: This was a crazy week. On Tuesday we announced a very large reorg in my department at the same time as starting the 120+ person summit I was organizing for months. The summit lasted two days and then there was a long Thursday where I had back to back meetings and then Friday was David’s graduation from middle school. Long, crazy days all week. but full of magic. Magic of helping people. Magic of becoming a manager again. Magic of my amazing children and magic of my incredible husband. Magic everywhere.

Magic I Made this Week: Well the summit counts. I took time to still do daily art amongst all this crazy. I am pretty proud of myself.

Magic of Me that I explored Week: nothing this week sadly 🙁
