Rainbows or Dark Clouds


I am a great reader, it calms me from a hectic day and takes me into a different space.

I read often and sometimes a few different books at the same time!

When I read I listen to my albums, I not only love reading but I love my music. As a baby boomer I love the plethora of different sounds that the 60’s and 70’s bands and singers brought to the world.

I doodle as I read and drift into another world. One that refreshes the soul.

One that encourages the mind to drift and ideas to be released.

So as I write this blog these words are for you and me.

Breathe them, exhale them they are yours, the feelings they give, and move to your place within these words.

When people say nice things – Rainbows and sunshine appear and summer is here.

Golden days are upon us and bathes our souls with warmth.

When people are nasty and unkind – Storm clouds are overhead the dark soul days appear.

Move away.

 When you listen to music and think of children growing up innocent and playing sometimes that where we long to stay.

 But life’s journey moves us along its pathways.

 

Know that the way we are in our path of life is ours to choose and what we keep and what we give are either rainbows or dark clouds.

What we give or keep defines the soul.

When we are long gone how will we be remembered… the giver of rainbows or dark clouds. How will we be remembered…….

The 4 stages of leadership – The platform to sustained transition

I like to identify with people.  For they are life.

When I originally drafted my 4 stages of leadership in 2012 I was working at a Drug Rehabilitation Center in Upper New York in my Human Resources Operational role.

Those 12 months changed my life.

That’s where I found real leadership change. Not from the obvious sources. Not from books but from seeing human souls change, and that’s a wonderful and ever lasting experience.

It came from those who needed to change, for them there was no where else to go, for them to change who they were, what they had becomes was the only way for a future.

Leadership comes from within but it is more than that it comes because somewhere along the way often there are people who can help you “see the new path”. The strength in you is to embrace it.

Internal fortitude is realized and sustained when there is an awakening of the soul that we all need help in our lives.

And the quality of the life we create is about the relationships we build the memories we make, the laughter the tears and hugs and the friendships.

For many who follow the “12 steps” there has to be a burning desire to become someone else, a better self. I found that the 12 steps are a source of thoughtful reading that we could all do well to read.

After all we are all in need of some “rehabilitation”.

I found that the road to recovery questions the very essence, the very being of a human soul.

I also found and admired the counsellors who became mentors and the support system and the role that they took in changing lives.

I found the path to REAL LEADERSHIP is no different for any of us.

I dedicate this posting to all the souls who have travelled down the path of recovery and come out the other side for they learned that leadership comes from within but much more they are the leaders who change the world.

This is also a thoughtful reminder to those who I had the pleasure and privilege to work with in Saranac Lake, NY. For you truly change lives and change the world! You do blessed work.

The Leadership Voice


 

unleash-your-voice-the-storytellers-manifesto-by-Jeanette-LeBlancWhen leaders produce positive energy: They create rainbows, sunshine and an environment where golden innovative ideas and effective and lasting relationships are born and nurtured.

  • Leaders create a symphony for followers to each play a role that matters.
  • Leaders give blessings and know that positive recognition is fundamental to the soul.
  • Leaders understand and ask how can I serve you to help develop the best version of you.
  • Leaders understand they do not do it for themselves.
  • Leaders understand that their role is to teach, coach words that turn words into enabling powerful thoughts and actions.
  • Leaders create an inspirational powerful story that ignites imagination.

Leaders understand that they are powerful storytellers that change the world and that their voice is only one!

What if life had a roll over plan, how would you use those extra minutes?


2015-02-08 10.55.37All the commercials about cell phone roll over plans. Rolling over the minutes we did not use last month!

What if life were like?

If we had the possibility of having such a life plan what would you do with your extra minutes?

Minutes that today are gone and just memories? Minutes that we have wasted and we wish we could have all over?

  • More time with the family – less time at work.
  • Repairing memories and doing the real stuff. The stuff that creates friendships.
  • Turning around regrets that only extra time can heal.
  • Volunteering your time to others – giving others some of our extra time.
  • Giving your extra minutes to a dying friend.

Make Life worth it!

My brain is my hard drive don’t clutter it up!! A New Years Resolution.


As we move into the New Year I can’t but help thinking that we all get bogged down along the way with too much clutter.

Clutter that distracts confuses and keeps us from what we really wanted to do and when we reflect we remind ourselves of all those resolutions we set ourselves and didn’t achieve.

So lets think of how we manage our very own hard drive in 2015.

  1. Lets keep in front and center – that which makes a real difference in our lives.
  2. Erase the remarks that people say to hurt us and drain our battery.
  3. Let’s not over sweat the small stuff, keep a clear picture of what’s important.
  4. Remember WHO and WHAT s important in our lives and take care of those things.
  5. Don’t fill our hard drive with STUFF that drains our time and energy.
  6. Recharge our hard drive by connecting with those who give us energy.
  7. Constantly refresh our hard drive for superior thinking and performance.
  8. Throw in the trash that which becomes redundant and obsolete.
  9. Constantly upgrade our hard drive through what we learn and what we experience.
  10. Remember what is in our hard drive determines the who the what and the how of ME.

I've decided to pursue my passion in jewellery designs since I love femininity and all things beautiful and sparkly, well almost all. I'm a proud mother to two gorgeous and amazing girls. I recently left the corporate world, went through a tragic loss and relationship breakdown yet I'm here alive and still very much wanting to pursue my dreams and maintain a state of happiness. This site opens up a new world for me to share and if I'm really privileged connect with with others.
