The other day, I found myself standing in front of the mirror getting ready to go to an early morning meeting. As I looked in the mirror, I realized I wasn’t quite awake yet. I’d hopped out of bed anxious to get the makeup and hair out of the way. I thought to myself,
“It’s six-thirty in the morning and I’m putting makeup on.” Then I realized I was one of millions of women doing exactly the same thing. This reminder that I was part of the sisterhood of working women made me feel better.
The morning meeting that I was up early for is a networking group called “TEAM Referral Network.” Each group is from a different area in Los Angeles, where I live, but they are located in many different states. I mention them because I’m having so much success there. Members must get to know one another and what they do. We can then help one another connect with people and businesses we have access to. For instance, one the man in the group works for a life insurance company and he wants me to work with his people to help them develop their communication skills when working with the public and as a team.
Taking Time to Communicate With Myself
I returned to the mirror. Looking past my reflection I saw my back yard and the sun just beginning to make an appearance. All the trees were glowing in back light from the sun.
I stopped what I was doing and went to the window. There was dew on the grass and everything looked so peaceful and gentle.
Then I remembered the madness I was about to face that is trying to get to work or a meeting in Los Angeles.
Yet, here I was looking out my window at a lovely garden. “I am so blessed,” I said to myself. Then I was overcome with a thought. This house has taken care of my family and me for years. It has held us, looked after us, and protected us. I love my house and I told it so, out loud so it could hear it. I am so grateful to have this roof over my head.
I sat down, overcome with the reality of my life. I am rich with life’s blessings.
My work is helping people overcome their limitations when it comes to communications. What a blessing to be doing something I love. I’ve paid plenty of dues in my life, but hey, that’s part of being alive. I’m dedicated to helping people expand their personalities and presentation skills, which will help them, among other things, to:
- Get a job
- Get a raise
- Make a sale
- Attract new clients
I’m always here if you need me. Just give me a call.
But in any case, don’t forget to count your blessings!
