Just Show Up

A friend reminds me that the job for many of us is to get ourselves into the room. Show up. Be part of the story. Or create the part of the story that is undeniably compelling and attractive.

It’s true in families. It’s true meetings. It’s true in working with teams. It’s true for taking the big journey of community together.

It’s a practice.  We’re not always at our best. It’s a direction to move towards.

The above picture is the vase of flowers we are using for our center at The Art of Hosting that starts today. Beautiful, right.

I don’t know if these flowers have a choice to do anything other than show up, and be in the room.

Beauty always guides. Presence too.
