• Reflections of a SuperStorm called Sandy – Part 1

    One week ago last year, the NorthEast experienced one of the most impactful storms that we had ever experienced, at least in my lifetime. As we draw nearer to the end of hurricane season and enter into another season of Thanksgiving, I’m reminded of last year’s storm and how it’s indicative to any storm in our lives. I never shared my thoughts as we endured a mere 7 days without electricity with a generator at my house. Many more were devastated by this act of nature and my inconvenience would have been preferred by many. However a storm, is a storm, is a storm!

    Throughout this month, I will share with you my thoughts while going through… and the things that I’ve learned along the way. I’d love to hear your comments today and throughout this series! Click on the box below.

    Sandy_Oct_25_2012_0400ZHere on the east coast, we are preparing for a storm (Hurricane Sandy). Everyone is stocking up on milk, water, eggs, (the essentials) as well as some non-essentials. There is energy in the air around doing what one can do right now to prepare for what’s to come. Which got me to thinking.. “Why then don’t we plan for our own futures with the same sense of urgency?” Do we need to have a proverbial storm in our lives to propel us into action?

    My promise: to keep the burning desire to do better and be better without the threat of a storm.

    What’s yours?

    Yes, I think that sometimes we need storms in our lives to get our attention. We are so busy doing things that we don’t take time to be still and reflect on our lives. When you don’t have TV, water, electricity, you have lots of time to think and reflect. We need to learn how to “be still” and listen to our inner self.
