Expect and actually anticipate that trying and difficult times will happen. This past Friday, the Matriarch of the family, our Queen, my grandmother passed. Although she lived a full and beautiful life, nothing prepared me for the loss of the woman who helped raise me. I sat next to her still body after her last breath escaped her and all I could think about was: “I’m not ready”.
I’ve been grieving since and it’s been difficult for me to even concentrate. As Wednesday soon approaches, and I am to submit my #WednesdayWisdom, I realize how I have a responsibility despite my grievance. I have to push past the pain, pull myself together, and push through.
We have an obligation to our teams, our work, our followers to continue to build, grow, and inspire. We must prepare ourselves for the unexpected that life throws at us and continue our work despite them.
