I am learning to trust the reflection in the mirror. The very image that is reflected back to me and shows me all those things I want to see and the ones I don’t. One of the hardest challenges I find that people struggle with around what it means to lead are some of the same ones I have had, I am no different. The fears of growth are ones that many of us share, even if the circumstances are different.
This past weekend I went to the Covenant of the Goddess annual Merry Meet/Grand Council meeting and was able to see some things in live action. I got to see a room of leaders leading. It was not always pretty but it was a process of participating in action and being involved. What I was able to see was a reflection of leadership and then my own reflection along side of it.
Somethings I do are different and somethings I do are the same but in the end leadership is about action in words, thoughts, beliefs and behavior. I feel like I learned a lot and I was able to also show a bit of who I was as well. I look forward to learning more and supporting community through hard work and dedication.
I am really beginning to understand how leadership starts with the reflection we see in the mirror and the choice we make to manifest action. Hard learned lessons that I am still learning.
