The Angel Within

The reason angels can fly is because they take themselves lightly. – G.K. Chesterton

Those of you who know me well can vouch for the fact that I’m not up for the Angel of the Year award! Sure, I’ve photographed kids with autism, cystic fibrosis, and Down’s syndrome to help raise money for a good cause. None of this was hard for me to do because when I have my camera in hand, I’m working. The camera is a safety net, a guard rail. Real angelic behavior doesn’t come easily for me, and that’s both a strengths statement and a self-leadership statement. So what’s an aspiring angel to do?

Brave. When you think about brave, what comes to mind? Ghandi? Martin Luther King, Jr.? A military hero (lots of those!) Someone who defeats their personal demons? What is the most courageous thing you’ve ever seen? What’s the most courageous thing you’ve ever done?

Poor Uncle Jerry!

Last week we marveled over the perils of an Uncle Jerry in your world – those people, harsh words, or circumstances that pull us away from our center. They throw us into a tailspin from which it is difficult to emerge. There was some great dialogue in the comments about your own experiences. Talking in superhero terms, Uncle Jerry is our kryptonite. Luckily, we are blessed with Superman / Superwoman powers – OUR AWESOME, ROCKSTAR STRENGTHS!
