It's all Happening!!!

See those butterflies?? They're dancing around in my belly right now.

Today is my last official day in the corporate world. This may sound glib, but I would be lying if I said I was sad or anything less than excited. Actually, I can't even sit still as I wait for IT to come and check me out so I can leave. I want to jump up and down, dance and shout out to the sunshine. Today has finally come!!

While I can't wait to leave, I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work in corporate pharma. It showed me my path first hand. It taught me that I am an anomaly for not filling prescriptions and popping pills and I shouldn't be weird because of this! I am not sure my path would be so clearly lit if I hadn't had an insider's view. It helped me to clearly define my views, opinions, ethics and morals regarding health and medicine. These clear definitions will allow me to move forward and clearly advocate change in maternal health, birth and parenting whether that is through organizations such as the New Jersey Coalition for Vaccination Choice or Amnesty International.

Each day the universe opens a new door for me to step through and each day I feel more empowered to make a difference in people's lives. I spent the last three days training with filmmaker, author, doula and extraordinary woman, Debra Pascali-Bonaro of Mother Love Doulas and 21 other amazing women. It was transforming to say the least...and exactly the energy and inspiration I needed to get through my last week of corporate work. (3 days off in your last 5 isn't too shabby!).

I will update the blog on this training soon, but for right now, I am simply going to celebrate.
Om Shanti Shanti Shanti!

Keep it Fresh!

  1. Congrats Terra!

    In my MBA experience at Rutgers most of my class went into the Finance and Pharma industries. I learned enough about both worlds to know for damn sure that I wanted no part of them. It was a good choice, I got to witness Wall Street melting down a year after my graduation from a very safe distance. I ended up returning to my old job in technology. Don't know what's next for me but I know it will be good. Best of luck in your future career.
