Spreading Sunday Sunshine

Updated: Jul 4

Easter and Passover are among the most holy weeks of the year marked by death, redemption and resurrection.   Scary and unsettling words that are playing pretty big right now. We are grieving for lives lost during the pandemic, and for our lives that are now changed forever.  Challenging times have always been met with great opportunity. Your opportunity to not just survive but thrive.   What does it look like to thrive?  Who is a thriver?

The world needs you more now than ever. Now is the time to be a role model.  

How about you model the behavior you admire in others: our parents, friends, colleagues, business owners. Adopting a role model mindset help reset towards what resonates with you and helps you get in pursuit to positivity and making an impact. When you do, you'll look back at this time and be proud of what you created and how you reset and rebooted.   Challenging times tease us toward struggle, and at the same time, give us opportunity to rise anew to become who we are proud of and we most admire. If we don’t do it now — strive for our next — then when? Now is not the time to get left behind. Now’s the time to adapt and develop new strengths. Learn a new skill and then go teach what you know someone else -- this was the most memorable thing Martha Stewart said to me. I tried to do that each day this week. I’ve learned so much about Zoom, about email marketing, Canva, about coaching through a crisis, and I’ve tried to share what I know with as many people as would listen.   Pause, quit, bail? No! ‘It is more important to be of service than successful’. This is a Robert F. Kennedy quote which hits home for me right now.   Social distancing should not distance us from the goodness we can bring others — both personally and for our work. When we give our brain is wired to feel good with chemicals that boost our mental wellbeing.  Do one thing today in service to someone else. It will bring you joy on this joyous day.   Tomorrow take on the day like nothing can stop you to create, be in service and be that role model. And if you still are not sure what to do, reach out ask for help.  The nicest thing we can do for ourselves is ask for help.   What are you doing to model the behavior you admire?
