today officially marks my ten year anniversary of working @lifetime.life . I truly never thought I would reach such a mile stone, at any company, least of all this one….I started at Life Time as a means to an end. a story that started with an ending. it was a placeholder job, something to do while the Architecture industry worked through its settling in 2009. I was just going to do SOMEthing while I waited and looked for my next design job.
from part time team member, to team leader, to acting club manager and special operations club closure, to membership sales, then on to procurement and new club opening project manager. I finally found my way back to design in year 7. at Life Time. and here I am, back in the biz, designing and developing, creating and curating moments of experience and joy for our members and team members. It really is quite something when you stop to think of it.
In the midst of the chaos and deadlines, projects and pressure, its often easy to forget the WHY…but today as I reflected on my time at this company I was slapped upside the head with the reminder of why we do what we do. We change lives. My life. Everyday.
year 10. shoot. I wonder what my next decade has in store…. (….In year 8 and 9 I had babies….so I guess I havent yet OFFICIALLY made it to ten years of service. Shhhh don’t tell anyone. I technically have six more months to go! aahahahaha)
You win some you lose some, that’s how I’m feeling about the difference between our yesterday and our today. Yesterday was one of those rock star mom days, today not so much! Today ended up being a complete gong show and absolutely nothing like I had planned . Today was the type of day that would have sent me into mommy tantrum mode and a day that would have had me feeling like a complete failure
But I don’t role like that anymore! I was reminded today that we have enough guilt placed on us by outside factors/society that we don’t need to be placing extra guilt onto our own selves. That’s so true! So what, today was an epic flop but my kiddos still went to bed happy and loved. Tomorrow is a new day and for now I am rewarding myself with a solo tub & a well deserved glass of wine (which I may have “borrowed” from my mom & step dads wine fridge 🙊 perks to living across the field from them haha) .
