Clear Intention: Will You Get Messy?

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
– Martin Luther King, Jr

Martin Luther King, Jr would have been 85 today.

I love celebrating him.  I am reminded of the progress we’ve made and how far we still must go.

I am reminded to ask myself how messy I am willing to get to consistently stand for what I believe in.

MLK Memorial in City Park.  Denver, Colorado.
Fog in Denver is quite rare.  Yet it’s so fitting for Martin Luther King Jr as he talked about taking just the step in front of you if that is all you can see.  He lived and died in a time of severe fogginess.  We honor him today for the compassionate and adamant clarity he brought to an issue that to this day requires more light and clarity.

How willing am I to look at my own actions that still come from bias, prejudice or fear?  How willing am I to change those actions however imperfectly?  How willing am I to admit how far I have to go?

What about you?  Are you willing to join me in the messiness?

What are you willing to take a stand for, however imperfectly?

Would you be interested in joining a small group of women in an intimate teleconference setting (or in person if you’re in the Denver metro area) to explore freedom from whatever has been holding you hostage?

I’m considering starting one or both of these groups if there is enough interest. Reply to this email and tell me a bit about your story, your journey, or feel free to call me. My direct office line: 303.399.8737.

Feel free to post your comments, insights and experiences below.

If this G Note fits someone you love whom you suspect is willing to get messy, please share!
