You know, this past week has been an adventure and as I reflect on everything that took place over the week I couldn’t help but to go back down memory lane and feel truly blessed and thankful for all the relationships I’ve developed ever since I’ve started this entrepreneurial journey. These relationships have encouraged and empowered this introverted networker to come out of her shell. I think people even wondered if I was really an introvert, Ha! Although I don’t run out of events wondering why the paramedics aren’t already waiting for me from my fit of anxiety attacks… I still have to give myself a pep talk before I head out, disappear into my own little corner for some space and “me” time, and the real driver, remember my why when it comes to offline networking.
Remembering your “Why” can come naturally in time of reflection but when your knee deep in situations I think it’s good to have triggers. For me, it usually comes in some form of the Arts and in this case it was music.
There was a song playing in my head on repeat as I headed to and from the awesome Get Out There Live conference with the amazing Christine Gallagher. I was humbled to have met some amazing women and men business leaders and get my hands on some great time-tested marketing strategies. As I thought about how far I’ve come while trying to not feel overwhelmed by where I knew I had to head, the song Alabaster Box by Cece Winans played, and the word Purpose entered my heart and pulsated throughout my body.
When I think about my life and the mercy and favor given to me, despite myself…I am so very, very thankful.
Thankfulness Tip of the week: Find A Song that reminds you of the grace over your life. Put that song in your pocket and save it for a rainy day 😉
Alrighty! Here’s a picture snapshot of what I’ve been thankful for this past week, (I aplogize didn’t take as many pics as I wanted).
Until Next Time…
