Vive la Difference ~ All-in Respect

January 30, 2021

It’s a new month, and there is space and time for a fresh start.  So, how do we want to create improvements and shape this new blank page? It’s up to us to choose how our time is spent.  Before we begin our experience together, I first and foremost want you to know what an honor it is to be a part of this great organization. It’s a genuine gift to contribute some thoughts and send some encouragement and love to all of you.  I’ve been thinking of you and hoping you are healthy, safe, and doing well.  I’d love to share a little fun with this month’s article.  So, I hope you’ll be “all in” and willing to try this with me.  

Think back on a time when you felt completely safe, when you felt you were fully cherished and valued; a time when you were truly at peace and happy! 

Step into the realm of sunshine that is present in that moment. Remember what you were wearing, who you were around, where you were, and what you were doing.  Reflect on how confident and gifted and assured you were in that moment.  

Release your heart and go to that time when you were fully present in that place. Can you feel that trust and the calm and the joy surfacingI hope you’ve said yes and that those feelings are p again? Can you feel the respect and the honor in you? 

Resent right now, because that is the goal of this month’s tenet:  

To celebrate that we are each unique and innately worthy of respect.

Respect, by definition, is a feeling of admiration for someone or something elicited by their qualities, abilities or achievements.  Let’s be honest. This is something we all appreciate and desire.  

Our cultures and languages may not be the same.  Our traditions and nationalities are going to be unique and different, too.  But one thing is certain: we are all worthy of respect. It is possible to celebrate those differences, because with each unique quality we can choose to contribute to goodness. Who doesn’t want more of that? 

Success in this area does not mean that we agree on everything. It means that even though we differ in areas, we can still play in the same sandbox together. That’s when respect becomes an essential part of living a good and abundant life. 

Any amount of dignity and human respect is a genuine gift, but a copious dose is definitely welcome. As we walk through our lives this month, I am inviting all of us to notice opportunities to use and to apply respect liberally.  This wonderful attribute actually increases and is reciprocated when it’s given away.  I’m “all in” on building pockets of abundance in this area!  Let’s make it a team effort so you can enjoy the rewards, too.   Let’s commit to the next thirty days and implement respect into our daily activities.  Take the feelings you had in the beautiful moment we shared in the beginning of this article and let them be your guide to find ways to show and give respect.  

I’m interested in the results of what you experience.  I’m excited for the goodness that I believe you will see in yourself and in others.  This month let’s allow respect to remain in the forefront of our actions with each other.  I believe we will love what we find and we might even be surprised at the results. We may even start to glow from the inside out!  Possibilities are endless, so let’s be “all in” and fully committed to each other and raise respect to an all-time high. I fully respect your abilities to shine! 

Heureux pour Toujours
