I can do hard things

I've been avoiding writing. Not because I don't want to but because I know it will take some time to sit down and do it and time is something I feel I haven't had much of. Since the holidays we have been in the throws of club volleyball and busy with all that comes with that. 

In February I had an awesome opportunity to present at a Scentsy corporate event.  I was terrified and felt totally inadequate for the job. I was asked to present in a breakout session for leadership. My topic was Recognize,Appreciate and Empower.
 In my presentation I changed the order of these words and shared that this is more than 3 words. It's a process. 
I shared what it meant to be aware and alert of the obstacles within your businesses and your team members. 
Empower by teaching and providing the tools, resources and examples.  Empowering with ABILITY! 
-Appreciate the value. Appreciating what it took to recognize those obstacles and empowering yourself or others with the ability to work thru it and grow. 

This opportunity taught me a lot about myself, the way I handle my business and those I'm involved within my business. It helped me grow and learn more about myself.  
I'm not a public speaker and I'm not good on a stage, but I'm grateful for this  opportunity and all it taught me. 
I also am blessed and grateful to be surrounded by an amazing group of friends who lift me up and believe in me. The day itself was amazing and as usual I always look forward to being surrounded by my Scentsy family
