#52snapshots 2022 | Week 7, Stepping Stones

Week 7’s #52snapshots prompt required making a list of important milestones in your life that bring you to the you of today and then to write about one of them. My list included decisions to pursue additional degrees, to divorce my husband, to write, and to pursue my family’s history. The last three of these were all catalyzed in late 1989 by a bout of bacterial meningitis which nearly killed me.

I have no doubt I am now in the place I need to be, professionally speaking. It was a long haul to get here, through 30 years of Corporate America that left me creatively and spiritually bereft.

What are the important milestones of your life? How do they fit together into a lifemap? What are you most proud of and what do you want to still explore?
