I chose this vocation not only to be the change I wish to see in the world but to be a catalyst for that change. The work can be hard, frustrating and depressing at times. Never losing sight of my "why" is what keeps me going. I fear one day I will burn out like others before me but I know for now I will run with the torch as long as I can before passing it off to the next person who will go the distance.
I didn't choose this vocation to be in the spotlight but the recognition does help to boost my energy when times get tough. Please take a moment to read this article honoring the fourteen San Diego Power Moms. They are all amazing women doing great things and redefining motherhood. http://redtri.com/socal/san-diego-power-moms-2016/slide/7
