I just returned from a very quick one-night work trip to Austin, TX. (More on that later - Austin was awesome!) The meeting was mostly very good with 1/2 hour of strangeness. I came home focused on that 1/2 hour and trying to figure out how to solve the problems brought to me. I felt very alone and at a loss. And then, I had the idea to call one of my peers. And guess what? She was able to offer a crack into my bleak outlook. She had a solution in mind, one that I couldn't/didn't see, and I left the meeting with hope.
I tend to be a "do it by myself" kind of gal. But today I'm reminded that I am not alone. I'm not expected to solve all the problems by myself. None of us are.
