This feels like a perfect reminder as we head into the new year.  Why not take 3 minutes and be present for this short video?  Notice which line hits you most impactfully.  Ponder why that may be.  Then share the line or your reflections in the comments section below.  I’ll start.

The line that stood out to me was:

“Occupy the space you are most afraid to occupy.”

Why?  I think 2012 is going to be the year in which I really get clear on who I am as a leader and what kind of impact I want to make on this world (through my coaching, my parenting, my volunteering, etc).  And while it’s really exciting and bold to be a stand for something in my life, it’s also insanely SCARY!

    The one that struck me…Occupy Stillness. With a baby at home for us there are few moments of stillness, but remembering to occupy those moments that (while doing something) can feel like stillness…feeding the baby, talk to the baby, etc. Thanks for sharing!

    Occupy the Understanding that there is always enough. – That is definitely one of the statements that struck a chord with me the most. Recognizing that all that I need is available at all times is where I’d like to be at all times b/c it minimizes my own anxiety.

    Love this, borrowing it if you don’t mind.

    Happy New Year to you, Nick and sweet baby Nia.

    Xoxo, Chris

    Great one, being overseas (and seeing third world poverty) has definitely helped me understand that at a whole new level.

    Please do! Would love to know what line resonated with you most… :)

    Whatever is in front of you – right now.

    What needs to be said.

    The hands that long to share.

    Great one Sarah — thanks for sharing this with all of us!
