Churning Burning Yearning Learning
Raging Staging Gauging Sage-ing
A maelstrom of emotions surges through our veins as COVID, protests, demonstrations, wildfires, smoke and haze fill our days.
An election is upon us. Unpredictability surrounds us. Friends battle cancer, heart attacks and despair.
Recently a five year old child I adore had a complete temper meltdown. She was tired from traveling and having no routine—and suddenly she just lost it when her parents told her to turn off the TV. She kicked. She screamed. She struck out at those trying to console and control her as they carried her upstairs to her room.
I’d never seen her behave like that, but she is after all only five years old. Her yelling eventually subsided and finally we adults could have our socially distanced conversations.
Thirty minutes later she came bouncing down the stairs, a great big smile on her face. She jumped into her mother...
This week the Harvard Business Review shared their insights about a family mission statement. I will add the link here in this email as well.
What caught my attention during this time of Covid is that they were actually pointing to something that can bring families closer, strengthen their relationships, and also give each other time to think about personal mission as well as their family mission.
The article points towards the benefits of a family mission and why it is important to spend some time thinking about your families ‘presence’ and ‘essence’ in your home, community and the world.
We believe that when you take the time to get clear about why you are here and what you have to bring to your family, your community and those around you, that you will also begin to see your children, their children, and each family as having a significant purpose in this world.
The Path is one of the most enlightening experiences for shaping and clarifying...
When we think about the sheer exhaustion that many people are feeling on a daily basis we have to stop and think about who needs us and how is my mission and purpose essential in the world right now.
Some need rest.
Some need wholeheartedness.
Some need a tribe.
Some need to refine and define their calling.
From a Path participant from the May Path 2020 Series:
One thing is for certain. There are no quick fixes. This is why personal mission is so important. It is the guide, glue, and grace needed to stay the course and foster resilience in your purpose and those who need what you bring to the world.
Today we close the July Path Course...
Last week we wrapped up the Path Course May 2020 series with amazing women from around the globe!
The friendships, connection and encouragement that was crafted, and shaped during this six week series is one that will last for many years to come. The Path experience and process lends itself to the exploration and imagination of what is possible when women put their mind towards their voice, their story and passion. Gathering each week to focus on personal mission and purpose using The Path tools is one of the best ways to get clear and create movement in your life.
