I was reading along when suddenly this sentence hit me in the face like my 1-year old does (and thinks it’s funny).
“This is a parentheses in life” another working mom (nicely) screamed at me through her feature in the WSJ.
Yep, yep it is. Whatever is happening in this very moment is just a set of ( ).
I’m reminding myself of this as we go through the potty training phase in my house. You may need to remind yourself as you’re navigating virtual learning or feeling miserable at work.
That difficult moment...that hour, day, month, and sometimes even year has (OPENED...
...But just like a set of parentheses, it must also CLOSE).
P.S. If you need help closing the ( ) on your current work situation, check out the link in my bio all about my program -- From Stuck to Fulfilled: A Career Transformation
