Authentically August

blog change connections vision Aug 20, 2021

There is just something about August that feels so real. Perhaps it is the realization that the year is over halfway through. Or perhaps it is seeing the plants beginning to end their summer growth.

August is a time for change and a time to prepare to harvest everything we have been working on all year long.

Our ideas from January are no longer dreams. We can see them growing in the fields before us, and we can clearly see what "rooted" and what did not.

That realization can be disappointing if we do not see the yield we had dreamed of, but I choose to focus on the "truth" that lies in the moment.

Consider this - bread is not something we pick off a vine. There are several steps from planting the wheat, to harvesting, milling, and then making the bread.

What I want you to "realize" is that when you look at your harvest, you may not yet see the end result. There probably are a few more steps to take to get to your goals.

So, keep going!

Enthusiastically Embracing August

Have you ever really thought about the word, embrace?

While we all automatically go to the heart of the meaning, "to hold someone closely in your arms", there is so much more to this wonderful word.

Another definition of embrace is:

to accept or support (a belief, theory, or change) willingly and enthusiastically.

WOW! Just wow.

I think that is why I just love this word. The idea of embracing something with enthusiasm opens a new perspective to "how" we interact with whatever "it" is.

 With that, let's catch up on what I've been up to this week...

Greetings to August!

What is it about the month of August? Every month brings its own energy, but August is something quite special.

Perhaps it is because we know the year is over halfway through. We feel the rush of deadlines and holidays nearing. We sense that the heat and summer days are soon behind us. We know change is coming.

Change is not always easy. And this time of year can bring stress on so many levels.

But I see August as the perfect time to pause and reassess. It's the time we should pull out our vision board and see where we are, adjust as needed, and realign our goals so that we accomplish what we need and want to by year's end.

That is why I welcome and greet August. It's the perfect time to prepare for change.

With that, let's catch up on what I've been up to this week...
