We all get down on ourselves. Being a successful woman is tough work. Being a Mom has been a lot more than I expected. Is there ever a day off? Have you ever been sick for a weekend and realized Monday morning that your house is lucky to still be standing? We keep the house running smoothly (and reasonably clean), the family fed and kids to bed (just about on time), the bills paid, and somewhere in the day we get the laundry done and the yard work updated and that’s before and after the full-time work. It seems easier to look at the one or two things we overlook instead of celebrating the small victories. And just look at how much we’ve accomplished. That’s what this is all about.
En-rich: transitive verb \in-ˈrich, en-\
: to make (someone) rich or richer
: to improve the quality of (something) : to make (something) better
: to improve the usefulness or quality of (something) by adding something to it
This is my hope for you. To enrich your lives on a regular basis, uplift you in your low points, and cheer you on in your successes. I see you. You are that woman who helps others all day long, thinking of those who depend on you, working at the job, working on your business, working on the home, giving of yourself, and uplifting people. And sometimes it gets to be…heavy. For years creating something like this blog was just a dream. No more. We have too much good to do in the world and taking five minutes for ourselves to have a quick blog read, gain a little perspective, and apply an idea or two to our lives will help us all be more productive, lift others, and keep at it.
And here’s the thing. There is only a limited number of people on this earth, and even a limited number of dollars (or currency of choice) available to do good things. But there is no limit to the end of ideas, energy and intelligence that we can create together! In business, they call this synergy: one idea plus one idea does not equal two ideas. Those two ideas generate another idea, which ignites another idea, and so on. It is mutually benefitting to both parties involved. Win-win? I’m in. That’s what we’re doing here. There will be a poll here regularly to share your opinion on the topic, see what other women’s opinions are, and share. By sharing, we can connect with one another and develop some overall strategies for an even more enriched life. Please vote regularly. I want to hear your thoughts. In fact, tell me more in the comments. You have areas where you are the expert. I want to learn from you!
The way I see it, by enriching your life, mentally, physically, financially, or emotionally, you are going to have more. More ideas, more energy, more funds, more positivity, more joy and you will use those contributions to make yourself richer, make your life and the lives of those around you better, and add to the quality of life to all those around you. Definitely, a win-win.
