It's April and usually that's all talk about showers and flowers.
Well, not today!
You know how, after a storm, you're driving down some road and suddenly, out of the corner of your eye, there it is: a rainbow! It's beautiful and unexpected, but you see it and wonder at it and maybe even pull over (or not) to take a quick photo with your phone that doesn't do it justice. Well, that there, my friend, is Rainbow Ready.
Instead of being completely occupied with what you need to do tomorrow, you were able to see the beauty in front of you, right there, right now! Some life coaches might say you were "truly present" or "living in today". You were able to seize the opportunity for joy in the moment without tomorrow or yesterday clouding it out. I say, you were Rainbow Ready!
So let's stay Rainbow Ready even when there is no storm. As a state of being, it will give us opportunity for joy, for friends, for fun and for surprises. When we visit at Punch 'n Lunch let's listen to each other instead of thinking of what to say. You might make discoveries of common interests, common experiences or common goals that can lead to great friendships. If we are at a coffee or luncheon, seek out that someone new and give a little time, maybe be a First New Friend. You will feel amazing later on.
If you are asked, directly or indirectly, to help out -jump in- you will acquire a sense of belonging, inclusion and comradery that you can get NO OTHER WAY. Yes, it might be work, but the rewards: they are the Rainbows! Just look at the ladies who are responsible for the Fashion Show this month and those models who are participating as well. Look at the officers you will elect at the Fashion Show. That look will prove that the committees and the Board are the Rainbow Catchers.
If I have given you nothing else over these last 11 months, I hope I have conveyed that to participate is to really win with Newcomers, regardless of the length of membership. For me, it keeps me focused on the tasks at hand and aware of the people who surround me with help and caring. And all the while, it keeps me RAINBOW READY!!
