Important Things #2 Show Up

Sometimes the biggest and hardest step is to make the initial step to simply Show Up!  Sometimes it takes great courage and bravery to move beyond any fears, insecurities, worries, doubts… and walk out your front door.  We have all had those moments.  Those moments when you finally got up the nerve to go and you showed up… and it wasn’t that big of a deal at all!  Or when you went and it was a huge deal, and you cannot believe you actually had the gull to go through with it!

Believe me when I tell you, from someone who has been let down over and over again by people, it means a lot when someone simply shows up!  Be that one… the one that people can count on to show up.  People appreciate it SO greatly!  Just make the move… push beyond even the silliest laziness and show up.

What have I personally done on this point this week?  Well, today as an example – my children are out of school on snow day #3!!!  Oh how warm my blankets & sheets were early this morning!  How easy would it be to call my 8am appointment at a clients house and reschedule, or my 11:30am interview due to the weather or my children?!  Instead, I was on the phone with my 8am, making sure they’d be there still…. nope!  They rescheduled and now I have to work later this afternoon to meet with them… my children will be at that appointment with me… my client will understand… and will be happy that I will be there no matter what!  For my 11:30 interview, thankfully I have a trusted girl friend stepping in as Auntie for the couple hours so I will be there dressed & A-game on! 🙂  Then… back home… maybe even some snow sledding in the afternoon!?  🙂

What can you do to Show Up??  I want to hear your comments!

I am a very unique breed of person. If you ask my mother, she would say that I am a very old spirit who should have been born in the 40's or 50's. I love old womens' fashion...when women dressed like women! If you ask my daddy, he would say I am the biggest dressed up tom-boy he knows, who is way too into cars and climbing trees! I was a ballet dancer and choreography major in college until 20yrs old when I retired due to a neck injury. Besides still dancing through ballroom, latin & swing styles, my current passions are cars (seriously...I took 4 yrs of auto shop, and drool at the sound of a loud engine rumble!), fashion & interior design, and creating moments that last!

I love helping people find their strengths! Finding their happiness and their smile! (Everyone looks amazing when they smile!) I love showing people how to be genuinely happy by simply changing their mindsets and attitudes. I do these things in as many ways as I can, using many mediums. As well showing people how they too can do something they may not have thought they could. there's a will, there's a way!

I am a mother of two (2) amazing children, who make my life beyond blessed, and I always do my best for them. I love to spend as much time with them as I can and want them always to be learning... I am very proud of them! And, GOD comes first & foremost in my life!!!

I am...

Although I really didn’t want to I went to my men’s prayer breakfast at 7:00 Saturday. A fellow republican with strong political views also attends. He was one of my staunchest ADVESARIES in my senate race this year. We had very strong words and i did not want to deal with him again. It’s amazing how the Lord put that all behind us simply because I “showed up”. Keep ip the great writing Sonya!!
