...37 days until 2016...
Where did yesterday go to? Having just finished the second of two whole-life mentoring appts with two good men, one of them kindly reminded me, with a knowing, accepting grin, that I "failed" to produce a Mentoring Mondays thought for yesterday.
Yesterday, did that already happen? lol
I, for one, am already looking forward to a quiet Thursday, coming up...hopefully. I'm already thanks-filled for that potential. Unless we are traveling on this national day of thanks, we have a delight-filled routine that we've followed for years within our home.
First, the jams stay on until we are heading out to dinner somewhere...or.....we may be having guests in late in the afternoon. Second, coffee made, breakfast concocted, it's time for the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in NYC. Third, we stretch that time into watching the Dog Show that follows the parade (those handlers are a breed unto themselves...). Fourth, dinner out or in happens. Fifth, it's home for some early quiet and rest.
Of course, not all our Thanksgiving Days have been that well ordered. Stuff happens. Life happens. Plans are made. Plans can be altered, some times with the next phone call. The phone can ring with good news. The news on the other end of the phone can quickly have one rearranging the priorities of the moment/day/week/month/year.
We suggest, encourage, teach, live out (...most of the time.....) that looking at the 8 Dimensions of life in LDG's Circle of Life Mentoring Model brings a wholeness to each day, if things are turblent or calm. I prefer the calm, but it's crucial to live into each hour with what shows up, as well as what we may be able to architect for how and where we live our lives.
Thus, it was a sincere delight to discover again a blog post of a good friend that he wrote over two years ago after experiencing a first day long training in our mentoring model. He is now one of the valued members of our LDG Mentoring Development Team...what a truly remarkable gathering of women and men across all Three3rds of Life. In his blog post he is pictured with another of our talented, dedicated core team...and yours truly, in the middle of the pic.
Further training in this life-giving mentoring model will be taking place in 2016. If you are interested, whether here in Colorado, or elsewhere, please let me know.
As you reflect over the days that have made up your life, so far, in 2015, what has encouraged you to be more of who you were designed to be, that has left you thankful for being alive at this moment in time?
I gladly yield to my friends blog post as he shares what he has discovered for his own life...then and now. This wisdom to live out daily is available to anyone who longs to live an even more fulfilled life. It is my hope on this "Mentoring Tuesday" that you will also be encouraged in your own life...and even more thankful in all of your life for who you are, and who you are becoming in your own.......
