Like lots of people these days, I struggle with feeling overwhelmed, negative thoughts and the pressures of day-to-day life.
But these disappear when I give back. Little things, like learning how to skip rope, tie a slip knot, or bake a pound cake with my mentee is freeing. Leaning into the unknown with my little is comfortable and easy as we discover things together; she reminds me that the journey matters more than the end goal.
Mentoring has taught me that I am more than my own set of problems- I am a difference maker.
