I am learning to live day by day, picking up the pieces and taking baby steps to create the life that I want for my kids and myself

It wasn’t until both the devastation and anger passed that I finally began to self-reflect on myself. This caused me to really look at the person I was, who I wanted to become and the life I truly wanted to have. So, my marriage was over. That totally sucked but that doesn’t define me as a person. Yes, I was a stay at home mom and housewife. I loved being able to be so involved with my kids this way, but I knew I could find a way to still be involved while supporting our new life as well. I had never really been alone, and that terrified me. Was this my dream?

I created documents that taught me a lot about the behind-the-scenes aspects of the field I want to work in and are also functioning documents with a clear purpose and audience and genre

I learned about different audiences I will be writing to such as coworkers and vendors and clients. I learned about different types of documents I will be drafting such as emails and new hire paperwork and employee handbooks. I’ve thought a lot about my purpose for writing. In HR I’ve learned that you often aren’t simply writing to communicate information but also obtain information from your audience. An engagement letter from a law firm is not simply for the purpose of expressing your terms to represent a client, you’re also seeking their approval and acceptance of the deal, you need the audience to sign and return the document. An employee handbook isn’t just a book of rules and procedures for employees to follow, it’s also a place to express expectations for the employees and the organization and also a place to let marginalized employees know they are protected and safe at your organization.
