I'm sitting in the coffeeshop.
(Really, right now, this isn't a metaphor)
The barista, the who actually gets what I do, comes up and starts talking to me about work. His wife is a knitter.
I see the guy next to us keeps looking up, interested.
When the barista walks away, John introduces himself. His wife wants to start selling her self-designed handbags…where should she start?
We talk for nearly an hour, I point him towards some resources. I walk him through the steps.
We both turn back to our laptops feeling excited, exhilarated, happy to have made a connection.
And I started writing this, not sure where it was leading.
But I know that this experience, this moment of helping someone, of bringing hope and independence and direction is My Truth.
It is what I love.
It is what I love to do.
It is clarity, purpose, truth.
And I wanted to remember it.
For when I feel uncertain.
And I get wobbly.
And I wonder why in the world did I take this on?
I want to remember this moment. And all those little moments I have with my clients and in my classes and just anyone who asks for help.
I bet we all have these moments, these perfect distillations of why I do this clarity. A moment where everything feels on and right and clear.
Remembering these moments and sharing them can be a powerful motivation to keep going.
So I'd like to know: what was your most recent moment?
