Eventually the question catches up to us. I am beginning this mentorship program where I will help a woman from another country to improve her writing and strengthen her voice. I feel I can hardly ask another to write openly and express her authentic voice without doing so myself. So I will offer myself here.

I am myself in the midst of massive change. My older son has graduated high school and will go to college far from our home. I am contemplating separating from the job I have held for seven years. I will turn 50 this year.

And the question arises, why am I here? To heal the world, comes the answer. Tikun olam. I wonder how is this possible, since I am only one woman strong. Then I remember we are the broken pieces of the world to be healed by connecting with one another, putting the pieces back together again.

" I wonder how is this possible, since I am only one woman strong.

I love this last part of your piece, because i can relate to it so much. I wonder so many times if I can ever do the things i have in mind and change attitudes of so many people all by myself and I answer myself with the hope that changing few through education will allow me to change many others through them. So yeah " by connecting with one another" We can heal the world. I love reading inspirational it boosts my confidence. Thank you for sharing dear. Love Deqa

Christine, thank you for volunteering your time to mentor a woman on the editorial front!

You are going through a lot of changes right now and I know that is something all women can relate to. Thank you for opening yourself up and for participating in this exchange. Together, we are a united community of strong women leaders—each and every one of us.
