His suggestion was, “Lead through example and love”.
My reply was, “Well, that’s all I have".
I typed my reply and sat back in my office chair, getting ready to begin my day of work. That short correspondence kept resonating in my mind. I took a sip of my coffee and really thought about it---the suggestion as well as reply. My response was quick, a ‘knee jerk’ reaction. It was the first thing that came to mind. However, when I sat back and re-read that message I realized "all" that I have IS everything!
I have the basis of what I need to take challenges, to lead, to set my sights on whatever it is I want. I believe that a huge obstacle for many of us is our assumption that, in order to lead, we need to ‘know it all’ in context of whatever it is we are doing. I realize that my life’s adventures have multiplied in many ways (beyond my wildest dreams) as I became more confident. This confidence has grown due to accepting that, even without the vast experience that a person sitting next to me might have, I have the right mindset!
I got this!
I have always hoped to be an inspiration to people…I like to teach and encourage. I have also hoped to be described as sweet… I’m not sure that will happen. I am so excited to see this group called Outsiety get recognition and grow in size. For my part, I hope to “build that tribe of warrior women” (how my cousin described this women’s group).
My personal definition of a warrior woman is someone that is strong in will, yet gentle in guiding and teaching. She is quick to encourage and promote others and shares her own fears so that others can realize she shares their fears with them! She draws people to her through her welcoming spirit and light hearted nature. She wants to challenge herself to learn and grow more and others witnessing this are inspired to do the same.
She realizes "all" that she has is everything!
What is your personal inner warrior definition? Are you recognizing your value and strengths?
