My DO52 verb last week was RAISE.
The task, you know, is to invite the verb into your week and allow it to guide you in shining brighter. Because, really most of us know what we need to be our best selves. We just don't always do it because maybe we think we don't have the time, or we don't like change, or we'll get to it later.
Whatever the case, DO52 prods us to do what we already know we need.
And it makes us more conscious too.
As was the case with me last week. I drew the verb RAISE from my jar and suddenly I realized all the opportunities there were before me to raise something.
Raise someone's spirits.
Raise an important question.
Raise awareness about an important issue.
Raise money for a local charity.
Raise a glass in celebration.
But really, there was only one use of the word RAISE that most nagged at me. It was the idea that I have two of the most committed people working for me and that they deserve a raise.
And no matter how much I tried ignoring the message, because raises right now are just not possible, the verb pushed me to see there was no excuse for not doing something to assure they know how much I appreciate their hard work.
So I did and now something that's been bothering me deep down is taken care of and I feel like I shine a little brighter.
You two know who you are, so if you're out there, stop by today and collect your much deserved treat.
