We are in awe of the countless possibilities that exist for you – the CoolWorkers. And, we’re in awe of the chances you take, the lives you lead, the possibilities that exist within each one of you. Cheers to where you have been, where you are, and where you might go next.
Patience is not simply the ability to wait – it’s how we behave while we’re waiting.” – Joyce Meyer
We’re all migrants on the path, in one form or another, some of us so much more fortunate than others. May we all be safe in our travels. May our hearts be open to those less fortunate than us. May we both give and receive kindness and compassion.
I recently returned home after two weeks spent in the Last Frontier. In honor of Alaska Day, which was this past Thursday, October 18th. I thought it fitting to dedicate this weeks’ Compass to our 49th state!
I lie to myself, all the time, and generally at the expense of my own freedom and happiness. As it turns out, many of us do.
Take good care of you. Because there’s only one of you. And the world needs the one, and only, you.
I hope all of you who are hesitant to embark on that new journey or who are standing at the threshold of the next chapter in life find your internal welcome wagon and soak up all the courage it can give you to take that first step.
When I was working seasonally, I remember the August grumps would take us all over. Then almost magically, all that would fade about the end of August as fall would start to usher in. The new season felt like a bit of a new beginning, and it would buoy our spirits, and get us through the home stretch to the end of the season.
Wherever this note finds you, I hope that you’ll rally in taking on the last few weeks of summer. Go after them with the fury and enthusiasm that you did in the first weeks when the trails were first starting to clear, or the water was just bearable enough to jump in. Knock off those bucket list items before the leaves fall and the snows fly. Tackle that backpacking trip, the camping trip, or the one giant hike that you’ve been talking or thinking about all summer.
