Letting Go of the Familiar &
Trying On Something New
By: Poonam Dreyfus-Pai, Senior Manager, Action and Impact
I’m the kind of person that doesn’t change easily. I have regular food regret when I deviate from menu options or recipes that I know I love; I tend to buy variations of the same outfit, in the same color palette (think Crayola BOLD markers); I pick up new hobbies and shed them just as quickly, preferring things that are tried and true (watching tv, baking, the occasional run). At 41 weeks pregnant, I’m the only person I know who felt like, “hey, there’s no rush.” I would say that I flee from change, but the reality is that I hunker down until things shift and settle around me, and then I pick up where I left off.
