May is the happiest month of the year for me. It starts with life everywhere and the weather blossoms. The cold dark days of winter are replaced with brighter days. My inspirational quote comes from a Brazilian fighter, Anderson Silva who happens to have won multiple world titles in the UFC.
“No one will hit you harder than life itself. It doesn’t matter how hard you hit back, it’s about how much you can take and keep on fighting, and how much you can suffer and keep moving forward. That’s how you win!”
This weekend my faithful companion took ill and for a time we thought we might lose her. We’ve made it through countless hikes and runs in the woods, and it was her inner strength deep within the dog herself — she fought the illness and now seems to be fine.
Now it’s time for me to come out swinging, and to do my best every day. I hope to have as many friends as will have me, to share what I’ve learned with others, and to learn what I can along the way.
Recently, Joe Dager has been a great source of inspiration and friendship, and I want to take a moment to say thanks! Here we are co-facilitating “Strengths Based Organizational Change” in Charlotte, NC.
More to come! Wishing you well.
