MM&I Header

March 10, 2014 -  Has something happened recently that has you questioning the path you are currently on or the role you are currently in? Has a situation arisen that is causing you to be less enthusiastic about your work or personal life?  Whenever life throws us a curve, it is inviting us to see around the situation to what is awaiting us on the other side. While you may not realize it currently, there are opportunities that are unfolding before you, if you are only able to see them, embrace them and bring life to them.


Take an MM&I Moment to reflect on the situation that has you disenchanted. What positives or interesting twists have occurred as a result of this situation? What have you learned about yourself or other people as a result of this experience? What are you grateful for now knowing as a result of this situation occurring? What do you know without a doubt is important to you because of what has happened? Our greatest gift when feeling disappointed is what we learn and gain, if we take the time to explore deeper. Take a closer look and you will most likely know exactly what you need to do to feel enchanted and enthusiastic again.
