One of My Favorite Blogs of All Time

I’ve spent the last couple weeks of summer savoring family time and finishing up the manuscript for my second book. (It’s due to my publisher in just a few weeks. Send me positive thoughts and get ready! I can’t wait to share it with you next Spring.)

This time has allowed me to reread some of my favorite Monday Motivation blogs I’ve shared with you over the past decade – to ensure that my book incorporates the most moving stories to help you live inspired… and IN AWE (the title of my new book).

The essay below struck me to the core and I feel called to share the important lessons within it with you today. Lessons of chance encounters, bold sharing, and undying love. Enjoy!

“Love has no age, no limit and no death.” – John Galsworthy

While speaking to a group of financial advisors in New Jersey earlier this month, I asked them to reflect on one individual who inspired them to do, be, achieve and love more fully in their lives.

Wondering if anyone might be willing to share with the group, I asked for a volunteer.

After a momentary pause, a hand went up from three rows deep. A gentleman stood, grasped the microphone, cleared his throat, and shared a story I’ll never forget. I wanted to share it with you today.
