What do we need to flourish?
One of the hardest things in life is balancing the various roles, areas of responsibility and lists of things I want to do.
I’m a woman of faith, a Quaker, a wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend.
I have a vocation to empower and support others. Growing MBS from one person to a team of associates and volunteers is just one aspect of my life and vocation – but an important one!
In 1991 Brian G Dyson, a former CEO of Coca-Cola gave a commencement speech in which he described that struggle as:
“Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air. You name them — work, family, health, friends and spirit — and you’re keeping all of these in the air. You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls – family. health, friends and spirit — are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for balance in your life.”
Above all, if I am to flourish, I need to tend and nurture the things I want to bloom in my life.
What do you want to have bloom in your life?
What do you do to nourish them?
