GM foot soldiers! God has given me more than I can even thank Him for in my lifetime. However, today I am most thankful that He gifted me with an open mind. I went on a retreat this weekend and I thought I would just stomach a weekend of “fluff girls” in order to do two things: (1) spend some time with the women I met at my first Mary Kay event, (2) meditate and get some awesome pictures in the woods.
Actually I had one more goal: to come with an open mind to what I hear. I did not go to this retreat to accept anything nor did I go to reject anything either. As a matter of fact, when I was asked what I wanted to get out of this retreat, my answer was that I had no expectations (except for myself). I told the director that I came as a sponge to be open to receive whatever message was meant for me.
Because of that, what I found was that I was in the presence of like-minded women. I was inspired by the stories around me. I was humbled by the lessons God had for me. Because I was open, I heard God’s message to me, telling me that everyone’s walk to success looks different. This especially touched my heart because that message had everything to do with how I lead the girls in my family…daughter, nieces and all.
Because of my willingness to function everyday with an open mind, I am blessed…even on a Monday! Please, foot soldiers, be grateful and share your gratitude. If not with me, share it with someone. Why? Because gratitude will improve your attitude and increase your blessings (by leaps and bounds!).
GM foot soldiers!!! Spread good attitude and please share your gratitude!
