The Self Leader Secret
One late evening as I looked out the window I was pleasantly surprised to finally see my neighbor out of the house, sitting on her back porch surrounded by friends and family with strategically placed bug lamps for comfort to help light the area. They all seem to be enjoying each others’ company as they shared a meal together.
For a moment I was reminded of how things were when I was growing up. It was a time when families and friends came together to share and to support each other. When they were willing to give of their time and morally support one another. It appear as though this scenery has become more prominent as a crumbling economy has taken it’s effect on the way things were going, and have some how
been able to change it back to the way things used to be.
Earlier on that day I witnessed when a gas truck pulled up to a homeowner’s place to perform ‘shut off’ operations. This has now become a current sign of the times. I looked on as two kids got together after weight training to meet at one of the kids home to shower after practice, as the one kid had expressed to the other that his water supply had been turned off. This seems to be yet another sign of the times.
So many signs seem to point us all in the direction of coming together as a people. It appears that no one man or no one woman have all the answers. We now have to place ourselves in a position of strength in order to become that oasis; that fountain of living water for others. As you become that oasis your natural response would be to reach out to others. We first draw from our own strength and then’ each one reach one’. When we reach out to others; when we help someone else, we in turn get to draw from their strengths and each one pulls the other up.
There is comfort in knowing that with a crumbling economy there are answers and resolutions. I invite you to come and discover how to put yourself in a position of strength and how to seek answers so you can reach out and possibly impact what’s happening in and around you.
