The other week I met a woman who not only “lives in the moment” but whose passion was to make a difference in people’s day. She brought 100% of herself to her job with the desire to make each person’s day, many of who were going through a difficult time.
Her job isn’t glamorous but is so necessary. She works as a receptionist/administrator at a medical clinic. Many of the patients and family members that go through her doors are facing serious medical conditions or uncertainty.
Yet she made everyone smile, laugh and feel good. Now that is a talent. She was a story teller and an open heart. As I waited for my father to have his test – a co-work of hers came in to share that one of their patients told her that this woman’s had made all of the difference to her and had been a light in a difficult journey.
I spoke with her for a while and her attitude was inspiring as she woke up every day with a desire and spirit to make it the best day possible. To show up fully in what she was doing. To bring fun and light into the lives of the people she interacted with.
Eighty percent of success is showing up. – Woody Allen
Image what we could accomplish is we all showed up fully in our days.
How are you showing up in your day? How could you show up more?
