On Friday I attended a going away party for someone who worked with me at my former corporate employer. This was someone I had hired 6 1/2 years ago right out of school. I had her resume in a batch of second round applicants and had started the process of interviewing my first round candidates. Step by step, each of those candidates fell through and I had to go to pile #2. I immediately grabbed this person’s resume for review. Just out of school, not a lot of “real world” experience but somehow I was compelled to contact her to arrange an interview. Long story short, she was the right candidate I could work with and I immediately put her in charge of overseeing our two largest accounts. I watched her grow up before my eyes, and not just career-wise, but as the amazing person she is now. I’m honored to have been a small part in her growth and especially now as she moves forward with her life, I know I did my part to help her along the way. If you are in the Boston area, even just for a visit, and want a great massage, please schedule with Kristen at OMBE on Boylston Street. She is an amazing massage therapist and person. You will know your life is better just for meeting her. I know mine is. You never know why people come into your life. You just do your part while they are there.
During this holiday time, please don’t take for granted the people in your life. Tell them how much they mean to you and how your life is better just for having them in it. Let them know how important they are to you and what a difference having them in your life has meant. While you are at it, adopt this behavior everyday and not just for the holiday. A lot of relationships could be saved just by communicating this small message.
I thank all of you who have been following me here, on the social media sites and in my business. It’s a true pleasure to have you in my life at any level. I send you this message of love for a most blessed life.
And Kristen, I know you are reading this. I love you and my life is blessed because you have been a part of it. I loved every minute of watching you grow and develop your gifts as a coach, as a healer, as a therapist and as a person. You are special to me and always will be. I’m glad you are still a part of my life and my business. You are someone I can count on. You demonstrate calm, even when your tire is rolling by you on the highway at 65 MPH! Thank you for being in my life.
