TRUST, RESPECT, ETHICS, GROWTH
This was my view recently one early morning in Maine from our boat. Believe me, I know- I am blessed.
As I thought about what has seemed to be a calm, quiet and peaceful spring in my professional life, I was reminded of how busy the winter was in preparing so many proposals which will be announced in the coming weeks and months. So many deserving organizations doing deserving work in the communities they serve. I took a deep breathe and took it all in.
It was the calm after and before the storm...because just yesterday, one of my clients called with GREAT news- so now the implementation phase begins and off we go again...
Sunrise has always been a favorite view for me as it reminds me of the opportunity we have as human beings to start each day as a new beginning. For all the non-profits out there who work day-to-day, 24/7, with their boats at full speed, please remember to take some time to be idyll and watch the sun rise. Reflection, Appreciation, and Renewal are equally as important as the busy, full-speed ahead days- without them, you'll run out of gas and your boat will sink.
