This month’s best

Stephanie Gil­man’s “New Call­ing” [#lifereboot, June 2015] made a last­ing im­pres­sion on me. As both a re­cent grad­u­ate be­gin­ning my ca­reer and the daugh­ter of a woman who faced can­cer, I was struck by the pow­er­ful mes­sages Stephanie shared: In a way, life is al­ways short, with or with­out ill­ness as a guid­ing force. Stephanie re­minded me that it is so im­por­tant to find true ful­fill­ment in your life, and, given the time we in­vest, where we work is par­tic­u­larly im­por­tant. I will keep her story in mind through­out my ca­reer. Her de­ci­sion to search for jobs that “bring joy and pur­pose into [her] life” is some­thing I will not for­get! Thank you to Stephanie for shar­ing her ex­peri­ences and to ELLE Canada for fea­tur­ing these sto­ries.
