It is a vital and uplifting pulse that I feel around my people. Quick to laugh, maybe too quick to speak, and always happy to listen for them, those I have gathered around me over the course of the last 30 years have come to mean a great deal to me. More than I guess I realized, before this last excursion.
And I returned to the deep sorrow of reflection. It is stunning to see yourself through the relationships you maintain. And now there is the lens of the virtual world through which I measure my efforts. I have put myself into so many things that have just sucked my energy away from me, and so many things, like this blog, that have fed me through the years.
I have been through many "business building/speaker training/leader teaching" courses that have all felt...not really like me, and every time, I am reminded, in one way or another, it is because they are not actually for me, they are for the money I spend on them. And that is where the sorrow comes in, because I know intuitively that this is a false reality.
But I carry on, because I always do, believing I am moving toward helping more people, inspiring more people to be real, and reminding myself, always, always, always, remember who you are.
And for today, that is enough.
