Inspiring Your Authentic Week

Thank You

Posted: 24 Dec 2007 03:02 AM CST

Thank you all so much for all of the love and support I get in my work.  Thank you to all those who have ever collaborated with me and to those who correspond with me.  Thank you also to those who contribute, ideas and thoughts. Thank you also to all those who have ever challenged or criticised my work, I have learned a great deal from your challenges.

Thank you to all of those who have trusted me enough to come on a course, or to be coached by me, or to hire me to run sessions for their teams at work.

Thank you to anyone who has sacked me (there have been a few) or pushed me down an unexpected path and made me change my direction.  Thank you to everyone who has participated in my life so far, whether I liked it at the time or not.  All contributions have been extremely valuable in helping me become the person I am now and I am genuinely and humbly appreciative for every bit.

We are the sum of our experiences plus our genes.  Every experience, positive and negative, contributes to us being the person we are today.  If we like the person we are today, or even the person we know that we have the potential to become we can be grateful for every contribution along the way.

Most of all we can be grateful to our parents, because they had the greatest influence in shaping our lives.  In addition we can be grateful to our schools and our teachers, to bullies and friends alike.  To supportive bosses and colleagues as well as to the ones who might have made a place so uncomfortable that we had to leave and move on, and find the next thing.  

We can be grateful to ex-partners for the lessons we learned about love, no matter how uncomfortable.  

If we can learn to love ourselves then there can be no negative experiences, because all experiences contribute to our learning and the journey we are on.

I wish all of you and yours the most delicious Christmas and will talk about new year next Monday.

With love
