It Has Been a Minute!

Well, 2022 sure didn't start off the way I was anticipating!

I was lucky enough to be reunited with my family for Christmas. It was a wonderful two weeks full of fun, laughter, snow, and love. I'm grateful for that time, but I was not grateful to return home and immediately catch COVID!

It knocked me out for the entire month of January and the healing went into February as well.

Luckily, I was finally well enough to travel to Las Vegas where I got married!

It was long overdue and I'm thrilled that we were able to make it on our original date (2/22/22). We had a wonderful wedding and a marvelous honeymoon and I can't wait to celebrate there next time!

When I returned from Las Vegas, I was shocked and devastated to learn that my friend and business coach, Anna Forbes, had tragically passed away.

Anna's impact on Zeda Virtual Assistants is huge. She was my cheerleader, my motivation, my guide through the world that is being an entrepreneur. She was always there to celebrate my wins and remind me how great I was doing on the days where I was down.

Today is one of those days. And today I don't have my friend when I need her. And quite frankly, that sucks. Anna was 37 years old when she passed away. The same age as me. She had so much excitement and fire for life. She was going to make an impact and a difference in the world, and all of that was cut short. It's not fair.

I know this isn't my best written blog post, but it's hard to explain the feelings and emotions I'm going through. Some days, I can hear Anna's voice in my head and I feel empowered and successful as an entrepreneur. Other days (like today), I feel alone and isolated. Like I'm a failure and a fraud. (Neither of which is true, but our brain is sometimes our enemy).

I miss her A LOT. But I know that I will take all the lessons she taught me and keep Zeda growing and serving those that we're here to help. Our motto has always been "We make your life easier." and that will never change.
