Truly Powerful People (366)

366.
Join me in inspiring truly powerful people. Each day I will add a new thought, story or idea to support your quest and mine.

When I first started to write this blog I had severe doubts that I could sustain it for more than 10 days. Horatio said, “Hell! If you can write for 10 days you can write for a thousand.” He was, of course, correct.

I was concerned that there was a limit to my experiences, a finite number of things to say. I was certain that I’d exhaust anything of interest in less than a month – like an introvert at a cocktail party I’m okay at the opening but oh-my-god-now-what-do-I-say. Horatio laughed. He already knew that experiences are infinite, that each day brings a new gem. His message to me: pay attention: your only true limit is your idea of yourself.

There were days that I wondered why I was writing. It was for me, certainly, but why post my random thoughts about power. And then, Patricia would send me a reflection on a post, an encouragement, a question. She’d write: “This rang a bell for me!” or she’d thank me for the thought. So I’d post the next – a secret thought for Patricia and no more doubt about why I was writing. Once, Jill’s connection was broken and she didn’t receive the post. The subject line of her email to me was, “Hey! Where is it?” There were a few secret thoughts for Jill, too.

Then, there were the thoughts that came back at me. More than once Megan took my breath away with the depth of her insight, the expanse of her curiosity. Early on Ana-the-wise would teach me, “I read what you wrote and I have a question,” she would say. And then, “I think you are missing an important point.” And so a rich dialogue ensued. Tamara sent me stories, lyrics, and a piece of the sun.

Today, I crack open a bottle of bubbly to mark this milestone and an ever-growing community of Truly Powerful People. I can’t wait for you to meet each other and I look forward to what we will create together in the year to come.
