Did I say florals? Is that me in a floral design? The blogger who said she is not a fan of florals? Yep…that’s me! I found this beautiful, FLORAL PONCHO on sale at CHICO’S…read the reviews…looked at the price with my Passport discounts and free shipping…and said…Let’s try it! I love it! It has resulted in a strong confident look!
As in all things, I have learned it helps so much to be open and teachable. Though most florals make me feel “old,” this one makes me feel “young.” It depends on the design, the fabric, and the fit! It is the second floral pattern I have purchased recently, but that is as far as it goes…for now.
I also need to be teachable at work. It did not take me long during my college years to learn
that humility and possessing a teachable spirit would get me farther than
entitlement. My first media job was as
receptionist at a television station…I knew it got me in the door. It would not be long before I joined the
early morning news team…then returned to the front desk as soon as we were off
the air each day. The desire to get in those
doors and serve has really been the way I opened so much opportunity in my
I am well into my second week working for a local magazine
publisher and the phrase I have said the most is, HOW CAN I HELP? I have asked them to teach me what I need to
know about their organization and I have willingly done odd jobs from answering
the phones to running errands. At the
same time, I started two new features on our website…one is called THE DAILY, and the other is a new blog
called OFF THE FREEWAY, on SAN ANTONIO WOMAN. So far, so good for career reinvention after 60.
At work and in fashion selections! Be Teachable!
