These crazy storms in our lives will challenge us to be stronger, it may not happen overnight but it will happen if you accept the situation for what it is, not worse than it is or better than it is and focus on supporting others in areas you can control. You will be an inspiration and a leader for others.
I met a collegue of mine a year later who told me that when he is stressed and trying to figure out his best next step. He asks what would Penny do. Wow-I was blown away at value I added to others at such a difficult time for them and myself. Being a leader is being the example. How you show up makes all the difference.
I am just like you, an ordinary person looking to do extraordinary things.
Let's do this together!
