Waves of Gratitude

Never Wear RedHave you ever noticed how life ebbs and flows like the waves in the ocean?  They (if anyone can ever tell me who ‘they’ are, it will solve one of the great mysteries of my life) say when it rains, it pours… things happen in threes in or in bunches… and so on.

It’s true.  And I have been riding one of those waves lately.  A tidal wave of gratitude.  So many wonderful things have been happening in both my personal and professional life, I am in awe and deep appreciation of all of it!

As I ride this wave, I am reminded once again of the power of intention and purpose.  When we find our sweet spot in life; when we know we are doing our best work and living in each moment; when we start each morning with a quiet ‘knowing’ that we will ‘win the day’; and when we have the confidence and strength to move beyond, through, around or over the obstacles that show up – then we create a momentum driven by intention that is simply profound.  What follows is clarity, FUN!, and the joy of living each day in gratitude and appreciation for what is good in our lives.

Take a moment to pause.  Just a moment.  Put the cells, computers and devices on silent – pause.  Be quiet and think about what you want this day to be – what you want to contribute – where you can add value.  Make it real and tangible and then make a plan to execute on it.  But be careful – if you do this every day, it could become a habit!  And waves of gratitude will be the result.

What will you do today to make a difference?  How will you add value?

With my warmest and best,

Genuine leadership is defined by heart, integrity, honesty, courage, compassion and those many intangible qualities of being and creating the most authentic person and leader that resides within each one of us. It takes time, awareness, knowledge and purpose to build our inner leadership and leadership in others. And, it takes grit. It requires a willingness to be vulnerable and show our true selves to the world; strength to speak our mind clearly and with confidence; empathy and compassion for ourselves and others while staying strong and determined; and the focus, faith and belief to do what we know is right even when it is the most difficult thing to do. Its a fascinating journey and one I have traveled for decades. The further I go, the more I realize how much I still need to learn and experience. It seems like just when I reach a new level of self-awareness, something comes into my life that reminds me I still have much to learn and many more levels to ascend. Exciting? Yes.
