Inspiration & Wisdom
By Women's Executive NetworkMay 9, 2013
Recently at a WXN Breakfast in Calgary, 2007 WXN Top 100 Hall of Fame inductee and Corporate Director Kathleen Sendall was interviewed by WXN founder, Pamela Jeffery as they delved into a variety of questions. We think Kathy’s ‘Top 10’ list makes pretty good sense and is also a great conversation starter. Here are Kathy’s ‘Top 10’:
1. Never give up the search for the perfect mascara.
2. Never lose your sense of humour and ability to laugh, especially at yourself.
3. Listen - learn to keep your mouth shut and control your temper.

Lost in the forest with no sign of a path, reassuring a child who is exhausted, and I’m having flashbacks of cancer trials – yes, we are returning to the Forest after our little diversion for the Olympics, and I’m still completely lost.

We’d been walking for hours after a misguided attempt to find the allusive ‘mud lake’ that took us off the path (a path, apparently that decided to disappear completely as we picked through the branches and stepped over fallen logs – nothing looked familiar as we tried to find our way back), and my nephew was getting scared. He kept looking to me like you might look at a stewardess during airplane turbulence to see if the plane is going to crash; I had to stay calm.
In order to keep a clear mind, I future paced myself to a time when we were back home by the fire.
