The Game-Changing Conversation
“I want you to say it,” Mimi said.
“I can’t,” I replied.
“I need you to say it,” she insisted.
Mimi and I were staring across the basin water at the Washington Monument. The Jefferson Memorial was behind us with several people walking by at distance. I couldn’t let myself make such a big, drastic decision. For the past several months I had been miserable at work. It was a great organization with good people, but my title and my role was not meant for me, my personality, nor my skill sets. I was getting paid pretty well for someone my age, but I was doing long hours which included a lot of weekends. It felt like every month I was breaking down---my hands in my face, water we’ll call tears dropping while alone in my office, alone in my car, or alone in my apartment. Falling apart frequently like this was unusual for me, as I’m used to doing well in other areas and work in my life. The worse part of the job was that it left me with no time to do what I was really passionate about: writing and mentoring men. To complicate things more, this was all taking place months before our wedding.

So a couple of people have asked me about getting the entire talk. Still working on getting the visual (though I have it via e-mail, just ask!), but here's the audio link below produced by the Archdiocese of Washington.
Also, here's the article that summarizes the talk with a couple clips from it:
Praise God, thanks for all the prayers and support! Let's all continue to fight the new drug!
