A while ago, I shared with you my "word" for this year - "Up". My word is "up" and I'm trying really hard to look up, grow up, train up, think upward.
I've been accepted in a year-long leadership training academy and I'm honored and thrilled to be one of 15 chosen. For the last two days, we've been engaged in intense learning and sharing and processing the work we do in and for underserved, under-insured communities, and I'm mentally and emotionally tired and energized at the same time. The work is challenging and the classes will be even more demanding, but I' m ready.
Are you training up? Thinking upward? What about dreaming? Are you dreaming up?
I'm challenging you to move upward. Go ahead and read that book. Take that vacation. Paint the walls orange.
This year, do yourself better.
