The Power of Being "To be, or not to be" William Shakespeare. August is upon us! August was named to honor the first Roman emperor (and grand nephew of Julius Caesar). The month of August is marked by majestic dignity or grandeur.
As all of you know, (thanks to me mistakenly sending a message to the entire membership instead of only the registered participants to an event-Oops!) the last several weeks have been important to me, as well as challenging. It brought me to a place of introspection and reflection. I navigated family emergencies and COVID, simultaneously. I also realized the unique responsibility of raising an elite junior athlete.
These experiences have required a great amount of time and energy, and "forced" me to take a deep look at my own mindset as it relates to "being." When everything converges, how do I stay true to myself and what requires my absolute best? How do I prioritize and allow myself to BE?
The famous quote above is so simple, yet so powerful! While the soliloquy in Hamlet is essentially about life and death: "To be or not to be" means "To live or not to live," it brings to light an important choice we are faced to make.
The daily choice of being, of accepting what each moment brings, that health, family, ourselves, are the inspirations that propel us to embrace majestic dignity and grandeur…
In our work as coaches, we often support our clients on their quest to fulfillment, happiness and success-and, as often happens, we may forget to grant the same wisdom and permission to ourselves.
Thank you to all of you for the kind words of support (loved all the fan mail!); to this amazing Board of Directors for always showing up in your greatness; for everyone being there for me and my family during these interesting times.
Check out all of the amazing events we have planned for August!
In the spirit of being,
