Exercise in Appreciation

Stop comparing yourself to others - you don't know what they had to do to get where they are. 

You are reading this online - thank you electricity, thank you internet, thank you device-maker. 

You are reading - thank you orbital cortex, thank you eye-sight, thank you childhood bed-time story-tellers, thank you first-grade teacher.

You are - thank you parents, thank you friends, thank you food, drink, shelter, earth, thank you lungs, thank you brain, thank you hands, mind, heart, and soul. 

Thank you for being.

Are you a Leader?

Brené Brown's definition of a Leader, in Daring Greatly It's been said that in order to be a leader, you need followers.

I'm no longer sure that's true.

I think we can achieve a lot by working on our self-leadership, and behaving in a wholehearted, authentic, congruent, kind fashion.

As long as we shine a good light out in the world, we may be creating a space where others see it's ok to behave wholeheartedly as well. But the point is to find our own ways, not blindly imitate.

What do you think?
