I spent my weekend in the mountains with over 100 women, all there to be spiritually-renewed and refreshed.
Many of these women are my teachers, mentors and support system. They bless me with the comfort of knowing who will be there for me, when I inevitably need it.
And they know they can also count on me.
This week’s intention
As a leader and a colleague, there are many opportunities to support the people you work with. The line between professional and personal relationships should blur when you show up to work open-hearted.
I’ve seen my colleagues bury their parents, siblings, best friends, spouses and even children. They have had health scares, family emergencies, mental health crises and devastating divorces. And those are just the things I know about.
Statistically, I am sure I worked with people dealing with domestic violence, substance abuse problems, financial hardships and a host of other things they dared not speak about at work.
My intention is to create and foster community.
There will be times in your life when we are not strong enough to hold up others. In those seasons, you need community.
When we have the strength to do so, build community and work to support the people in your life that are hurting.
This week, reflect on your ability and strength to care for others. Pray and journal about attracting and nurturing relationships that will build or invigorate your sense of community.
That’s plenty to focus on for one week. See you soon!
