Miracle Moments Transform Us

March 20, 2019

Wednesday Wisdom, Inspiration, Motivation for Women Entrepreneurs, Women in Business, Women in Sports

Miracle moments occur so many times throughout our lives. We are blessed when we experience them and equally lucky if they teach us wisdom and direct us on a new path in life. Not all miracle moments are happy ones; some are sad; but they teach and help us to grow if we pay attention when they happen and while looking back.

Close your eyes and envision five moments that spring from your memory when you say, “What miracle moments changed me or altered my course in life for good or bad?” Without thinking too hard about it, write them down immediately. Take a few minutes to read and replay those moments again this time with attention to jot down the lessons you learned from the experience. How did they shape you at the moment? How did you emerge a stronger person once time passed? Did those “miracles” propel you forward as a woman or woman entrepreneur?

As Women’s History Month comes to an end, I am thankful for women who came before me making me a stronger, more outspoken woman, believing in myself and impacting my personal mission. Gratitude goes to Kathrine Switzer for teaching me to be fearless in the face of fear and Billie Jean King for working hard for equal pay for women in sports (and life). Gratefulness extends to my mother and aunt who were women entrepreneurs in the late 1960s paving the way for my entrepreneurial spirit and career. I also am appreciative of wisdom gleaned from my first female boss who showed me how to lead and for my second female boss who showed me the opposite.

Today’s Wednesday Wisdom is on the first day of Spring when we are blessed with a beautiful blue sky and a new beginning of another season in life. Take time to be grateful to all your experiences that shaped you into the woman you are today. Everyone moment has led you to this moment, this place you stand strongly within. As a popular quote says, “I don’t mind the wrinkles on my face because it means I have laughed.”

I dedicate today’s editorial to my beautiful stepmother JB, who passed away one year ago tonight. Being by the side of someone as they die is as beautiful as the moment life comes into the world; but even more meaningful because of the life lessons the person has given and the love they bestowed. She taught me to be a loving, kind, joyful woman. Be grateful for your life moments today and always.
