A friend of mine shared thoughts recently that to build courage in others, we should be more focused on encouragement. It was the right message at the right time for me. Instead of New Year’s Resolutions, I theme my years (and I’ve been doing it since 2003), and focus on improving my life in a key area for the whole year.
I’d been struggling with what to have as my focus for 2018, too much on my mind and the thoughts running through my head, “Does anyone really need my help? What do I have to offer?”
And then I’m reminded that each of us has unique talents and gifts. My strengths include organization and communication – and I love sharing what I’ve learned with you. I know it’s helpful to be reminded what you do well and get tips for making improvements.
