Monday Morning Rock Out!

It’s Monday! Are you ready to create the future of your community – of our world?

Some days it is easy to forget that we are indeed creating the future with every single thing we do. We know intellectually that every assumption we make, every action we take, every word we speak is creating the future.  And yet sometimes we see only what is frustrating, annoying, maddening.

And then…

This week will be an intense one for us – many things going on, all exciting, some stressful. Can I remember to look beyond the behaviors of those I encounter – to find what they are experiencing behind what they are showing to the world?

Here’s to all of us remembering to take a deep breath when we perceive people as being difficult.  Here’s to our remembering to take that opportunity to encourage their goodness – to hug them each time they ask, “What is that?”

Have a great Monday and a great week, all!

  1. Great way to start every day, Hildy.

    More thoughts for the day…What if people weren’t being difficult..what if they were just being them. Why do they do so?? Because they can…and we are surprised for what reason?

    What if the only reason we got upset with people was because they said or did something that didn’t meet our already fixed point of view of what should be. What would it it take for us to shift our point of view, or…shock/horror…not have a point of view??? Hmmm, I wonder if I could be disappointed then?

  2. Thank you Hildy for sharing this. It brought a tear to my eye and made me wonder just how often I (we) miss these real opportunities to connect.
