A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Blog

January 26, 2012

I’ve had many times lately where it occurred to me that I needed to heed my own words. Words that I’ve written here in this blog, to be specific.

In December, I was going through a tough time, and I needed to remember that we never regret brave . There were days upon days that I wanted to pull the covers over my head and wait until it all went away. My life, however, is not a bad dream, so go away it will not. And I needed to be brave, go ahead, get up, face the day. Do my best.  Do the thing that requires brave.

Then, something else came up (as will happen while we are breathing) and I needed to remember courage is a habit. Just keep doing the courageous thing – whatever the moment or the situation calls for. Be courageous, face the stuff I would rather not face. Wash, rinse, repeat.

Yesterday I was penning the only way to know and I realized how much I need that counsel right now. Because I don’t yet know all the ways we can serve our members. I don’t yet know how we will get Wisegate to a point where we can serve more people in more professions. I don’t yet know all the ways we can help people in their jobs – though that is what I want because it is what I believe in.  So I need to not know, to stay curious, listening and not knowing – that’s how the answers will come.

So I couldn’t help but wonder whether it is axiomatic that if we observe what we say to others, will we find that there are the words we need to hear?
