Oh my heart.

I love the thrill of driving home on Thursday nights with a fire raging in my soul. I love the refreshment of stepping out of my office and sliding into my beloved minivan, feeling as though the world is at my fingertips. I love the community, the family, the oneness of being around my colleagues.
I love the defining moments, and the bursts of clarity, and the not-so-gentle reminders of things you thought you’d forgotten.
I love the journey.
I love the person that my job has made me. I love the confidence that I feel, the spring in my step, the smile on my face. I love the support and the foundations I’ve built with those around me that hold me up through the hard times and celebrate with me during the good times.
I love the after-the-meeting drinks, though far too few and far between these days. I love that I finally have somewhere that makes me want to bring in homemade cupcakes
I love the diversity, the backgrounds, and at the same time, the common threads that link us all together.
I love that the entire company is based on the concept that you cannot help yourself until you help others. We make our living helping others.
Growing others. Saving others.
In helping others, I help myself. Give and ye shall receive. Love, and be loved in return.
It’s beautiful, this work I do. To take something so bland and impersonal as finance, and to be able to make it into something so beautiful and whole is incredible. And to be surrounded by people who believe the same thing?
Well, it’s just the icing on the lemon cupcake
