Surround yourself with the best people and then get out of their way.


My prayer of yesterday was answered with abundance today.

That’s a nice way of saying that I woke up this morning with so many ‘clarion calls’ that I’m befuddled in choosing one.  Which means that it’s time for me to rely on some tried and true tenets for moving forward.  This morning will be, “Surround yourself with great people, work with them on what you each need to have happen and then get out of their way.”  That worked really well for us at the Faire.  Have you met any of the Bristol Directors and cast?  Then, you know it’s true.

Today, I will ask for fundraiser crew leaders.  When I break it down into components, this is a small (ONLY in organizational scale – NOT in importance) project compared to Bristol, so these crew leaders aren’t going to be overly tasked.  But, if we’re going to be effective in putting the fundraiser together, I need to create that uber-functional fundy team.

And, then get out of their way.

Shall we dance?

Today I will pray.

Today I will pray.

This is significant because it’s not something I do.  I did when I was little.  Later, I learned to meditate.  My prayer today will include bits and pieces of so many of the things I’ve discovered about my spirituality, but the significant thing is that it’s what I’ve decided to do.

Wish me luck,

‘Signficant’ doesn’t have to be complex.

What was significant about January 1, 2010?

First off, I didn’t turn on my laptop.  There are days when I choose not to and that was one of them.  That’s not the significant thing, though.  What was significant about January 1, 2010 is that I pushed myself to do what was best.  It may not seem significant on the surface, but it was the choice that counted.

Every inch of my body, soul and spirit was telling me that I needed to be still and quiet.  To lay down.  To nap.  For many reasons – some reasonable (head cold, blah, blah, blah).  Some – not so much (up too late last night, yada, yada, yada…).  Regardless, I was tired.  Plain and simple.  It was also the first day of the year.  It was my dog’s birthday.  It was a rare day when I could spend time with my amazing husband.  So, we suited up and hit the hiking trail.

Yes, that was what was significant about yesterday.  We hiked.  There’s so much that goes into that seemingly simple thing, but hey significant doesn’t have to be complicated.  It also doesn’t always have to be explained ad infinitum, so I’ll just leave it at that.

A Year of Significance

A Year of Significance

It’s simple.  Every day I will do something significant.  I’ll decide in the morning, post my intention and then tell you how I did the next morning.

Why?  I’ve long thought it would be great to take on ‘a year of…’ and have been open to just what that might be.

Why?  I believe that 365 significant things can add up to a whole lot of accomplishment.

Why?  It’s what’s next.

Wish me luck.
