At least once a month I have a mother-daughter date with this beautiful woman. The older I get, the more I appreciate her not only as a parent but as a role model and a friend.
We happened to be at Kay's Country Kitchen in Old Orcutt, where all of their coffee cups are mismatched. Mine was a deep forest green with a red rim, and my mom's was white. Or so I thought.
She was sharing with me the story of how she came to work at the same place she is today, some 30 years later. It's a fascinating story, not unlike my own professional journey. And as her story came to a close, she happened to shift in her seat just so. That's when I saw her mug.
As if it had been selected just for her, this sums up my mom perfectly. She used to joke that she was the kind of person who could be given a room full of - ahem - manure, and she'd look for the pony. And her optimism and encouragement are things that brighten my life every day.
If you are in a place that feels suffocating, or you are at a loss for what to do next, let your mind wander to what you are most passionate about. If you are lucky enough to do this for a living, hope just might be your super power too. Share it with the world and inspire others.

Rains Gone - What’s your weekend plans?
To me personally there is nothing more important than my own health - only if I'm healthy I can take care of my kids and family; and only if I'm healthy I can go after my goals! I know that as women (especially moms) it's not always easy to prioritize your own health......but the truth is, we can poor from an empty glass! Do you agree? I love bringing value and inspiring other women to make their health a priority, and that's why I created The Slowolution FB group - it's all things health for the busy woman! Join (link in my bio) and get inspired.....looking forward to seeing many of you there! #healthy #lifestyle #women #mom #facebook
Guess who is feeling well again & is at the gym putting 200% work in again 👊🏼👊🏼💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼
