Keep Moving Forward

I spent some time working on what I hoped to be a relaunch of my blog today, but got distracted, as I often do.  Sitting at a locally owned coffee shop near my home, I saw a familiar face who asked me why I wasn't at work.

What AM I doing off work today?

Our offices are closed in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. day.  Then it dawned on me how appropriate that is, as I reflect on my own dreams and those of others.  You see, I am not so much starting fresh, as refocusing on those things that are already a part of me; that potential inside that sometimes gets put aside.  I'm slowing down in order to go faster.

So for now, I share with you the quote, out of all of those quite powerful from MLK, that touched me the most on this day of pause - set to one of my favorite photos taken at the 2006 Susan G. Komen 3-Day.  As we walked in unison, I gradually and purposefully began to trail behind, overwhelmed by the beauty of the day and the hearts of the women beside me.  Thank you for sharing the moment with me now.

So please bear with me as I work on my public relaunch.  I have some exciting new projects and have been truly inspired, but will need you all to walk beside me as we lift each other towards flight and sometimes encourage each other to simply crawl.  I look forward to continuing our journey together!
