Message from Pat - Just Be

"If success or failure of this planet and of human beings depended on how I am and what I do, how would I be? What would I do?"

~R. Buckminster Fuller

Beach Wood by pictoscribe

Beachwood by Pictoscribe

‘Tis the season. I am complete with all the gifts and wrapping and baking and running around and have a day or two of breathing space before I head back to Chicago to be with my family (including little ones) and friends. I find that all I really want to do is ‘just be’ for a while and find some time to reflect on what has been and what will be.

I yearn to be in a space where I can breath out…fully. To just be.

A friend of mine gave me a plaque with the "ABC's of Life" and I find myself reflecting on these words.

Accept differences; Be kind; Count your blessings; Dream; Express thanks; Forgive; Give freely; Harm no one; Imagine more; Jettison anger; Keep confidences; Love truly; Master something; Nurture hope; Open your mind; Pack lightly; Quell rumors; Reciprocate; Seek wisdom; Touch hearts; Understand; Value truth; Win graciously; Xeriscape;
Yearn for peace; Zealously support a worthy cause.

As we slip into 2012, I wish for you all, my family, friends and associates, a new year full of peace and joy and the answer to R. Buckminster Fuller's question above.

If success of this planet and of human beings depended on how you are and what you do. How will you be? What would you do?

Be it and Do it in 2012. Reflect on what you want your legacy to be.

Now go do it.

Step into leading and play a Bigger Game in your life...don't wait...model leadership...the World needs us to do this.

Lead strong!


There is No Tomorrow...

Bold Buildings by Dan Orbit

Bold Buildings by Dan Orbit

"It keeps coming down to this: There is no tomorrow, only a string of todays. I was taught to dream forward, to fill the future with everything that matters. I start out days with pouring the best of me into an imagined time yet to be, but then I hear, "If not now, when?" and the best of me floods back to the only place it truly knows--Now."

From The Book of Awakening by Mark Nepo
