Destroy the idea that men should respect women because we are their daughters, mothers, and sisters. Reinforce the idea that men should respect women because we are people.

quote
We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another, unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward or fix us in the present. We are made of layers, cells, constellations.
Anaïs Nin

A note from the Editor | It’s been quite the year!

I have been Editor of BizEnergy for over a year now. With the luxury of working from home with my beagle as my assistant, producing over 150 stories about energy efficiency and sustainability and participating in interesting meetings as I play full-time grown up — I’ve learned a lot.

It feels like only yesterday I was turning tricks at the sports bar looking for some light. In the last year, I’ve been filled with so much change and have found love and happiness in the funniest places. It took me 28 years to become at ease with myself and now, at 29, I finally feel like I’m where I’m supposed to be (who I’m supposed to be).

My old editor from TV Guide Canada and I had a chat the other day — it was nice and interesting to see how far I’ve come. Right after graduation, she took me as an intern and let me write all the breaking news, top tens and short features (it was then I produced some of my favourite, fun, entertainment pieces). My journalism career has taken me to China, to Mexico and to pool sides where I generated content. From queer publications to national publications, freelance life was tough. The dating column and Clark’s column were possibly the most satisfying. It’s been a long road.

Having started my book, I’ve decided writing this will be my focus for the next while.

Filled with happiness, hope and light, I am celebrating inside today. I remember being a small, nine-year old with hopes of being a writer when I grew up — twenty years later I can sit at my desk with a word document open happy to say the last few years have been a little like a dream. (working from home afforded me the ability to socialize with my friends all day in the sun and do what I like doing best.) I am so excited for the next adventure.
