Since moving to Chicago I've felt sort of lost- both geographically and emotionally. I started re-evaluating my life and realized there was one common denominator in what makes me truly happy, and it was philanthropy.
I get excited about good ideas that make a difference, like really excited. I get excited when my work has meaning, when my celebratory shindigs generate gifts for those in need, when my self-indulgences (shoes!) benefit someone else.
Case in point: TOMS SHOES. This weekend for my non-profit conference, I bought two pairs. Pink glitters for sessions, and the black wedges for the reunion dinner I was planning. They felt good on my feet and felt good in my heart. I need more TOMS ideas in my life...it makes me happy, it makes me work better.
So head over to FruBu to see what I've been up to. Posts updated daily.
