This year has brought a lot of new words into our vocabulary. The one I’m focusing on today is “pivot”. We’ve seen so many businesses transition from what their main form of business was to something brand new.

If you think about it, this time has been a time for a lot of reflection and creative innovation. It has been a very difficult time for so many people, and I don’t want to minimize this at all. It has also been a time of opportunity for so many to reach out and help people in need and to do things to come together more as a supportive community.

When I think about all of the most difficult times in my life that completely flipped my life upside down, I can see that they were often a time of growth and transition. When I was 23 I packed my bags and moved to S. Korea all by myself without really knowing what I was getting in to. It was a huge life changing time for me. I remember waking up in my tiny little apartment wondering what in the world I did because everything was so difficult. I had no idea about the culture, the language, the food…. nothing. I was so young and naïve when moved there. It was the first time that I had traveled internationally and pretty much the first time that I had traveled completely on my own.
