“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” —Anaïs Nin
I’ve done it again. Put myself in a position to stress and worry. As the founder of Pink and Paisley Magazines, I have a passion for people and connecting them with each other to benefit both sides. I love putting people together, so much so, we used to do an article called Mix and Match. We would have a single man and a single woman go on a date, along with our writer, who was perfect for this assignment. Sometimes it was a match, and sometimes not so much, but it was always fun—though risky—and made for great reading, too.
In my passion to connect people, Pink has become the events leader for women in our area, and this is where my stress comes in. When people look at things from the outside, it all usually appears easy; and one would think after doing them for so many years that it is easy. Granted, we have gotten the due diligence of our events down to a science, but where the uneasiness comes in is the part out of our control: Will anyone come?
