Anything that can help connect me to support, help me turn difficulty into resilience and allow me to share the wisdom I gain during these difficult winter months is high on my list of resources. Which is why I joined Caring Our Way.
Caring Our Way is a new Mighty Network Community hosted by Denise M. Brown. As Denise says, “What challenges you during your life becomes the content about your life you use to help others. In other words, when you have a tough day, you’ve just added another chapter to your book. When we can look at difficult times from a distance, we can learn more about how we cope. What we learn becomes what we can teach through presentations, books and training programs.”
The idea that I can harness my resilience and turn it into a book, a podcast, a workshop or training gives me hope and a focus in a time when it is too easy to lose both. I love that I can simply share my work within the Caring Our Way Community or submit a proposal to present at The Caring Conference being held virtually on April 9-10, 2021.
What I appreciate about Caring Our Way is that it is not a one-way street. In this community each one of us is invited to share updates, pose questions, write blog posts and connect in the monthly member Twitter chat. It’s like belonging to a think tank that is focused on better understanding resilience. How does an individual and a community continue during difficult days? How does an individual committed to supporting others impact a community? How does a community focused on creating and sharing good work change the world?
I appreciate how Denise models this with a “Good Morning Wishes” daily email. I don’t know where she gets her pictures, or how she comes up with each wish, but they start my day with hope.
My favorite communication from Denise is the Sunday question. Each Sunday morning I receive an email with a question to help set my intention for the week. I admit, I don’t always start my day asking myself the question, but the weeks I ask the question more often, I find myself centered, grateful and resilient.
I don’t know about you, but clarity, those “Aha” moments, come when I’m in relationship with others where support and a willingness to share our lives are the foundation.
Take a peek at this week’s Sunday question. It’s my favorite so far. What’s the Right Decision for Me Today
