Feeling Proud

The last NPC Executive Committee retreat.

Pride is an inwardly directed emotion that refers to a satisfied sense of attachment toward one's own or another's choices and actions, or toward a whole group of people, and is a product of praise, independent self-reflection or a fulfilled feeling of belonging.

As I sat around the table last week at my last NPC Executive Committee retreat, I couldn’t help but be overcome with a sense of pride. I’m proud of the Executive Committee, the NPC Board of Directors and all of the amazing women who volunteer for NPC. We have achieved so much in the past two years, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the current state of the organization. Is it perfect? Is everything on the wish list marked off? No, but we have a great strategic plan, a great team and a vision for leaving this organization better than we found it, which is something I’m proud to say.
