I was reflecting about 5 days agoÂ as I kicked back and relaxed on my flight from Canberra back to Melbourne. For 9 years Lynne and I have been coming to Australia, yet this tour has been one of the most amazing and exhilarating ever.
Relationships are everything! It is what invigorates me and brings joy to my life and this particular trip was oneÂ was about making new connections and reconnecting with old friends.Â I had an opportunity to spend time with many of you that I now hold dear as family, and I also had a chance to meet many new friends. (The pictures are friends from the CEO Women in Leadership Program. Check out those gorgeous smiles!)
I received a note from one of the graduates from a leadership course I did in Canberra and wanted to share this person’s thoughts with you: “You parted the clouds for the light to beam into my consciousness, and you opened my heart to a new way of being. By the end of the 2-days…. (an) internal transformation … was underway….This morning I awoke refreshed, rejuvenated and renewed, truly reborn in spirit. I know now what I want to do with my life.” This person’s message touched my heart… It is truly why I do the work that I do and this is why my passion and my purpose, my fun and my play have so merged and become one in the same!
I just want to say thank you to my Australian family! Thank you for letting me participate in your life, and thank you to each and every one of you who continually enrich my life.
