Over the weekend I had a few experiences with “Shine”. First off, I spent the weekend polishing the silver to be ready for use for the upcoming holiday dinners. This hands on approach made me appreciate the use and ability of my hands, my tenacity at getting this job accomplished and gratitude that I still had some hand lotion left. It also made me think about delegating this job back next year since I was perhaps good at polishing silver but not great at it. Secondly , I had an interesting conversations about Shine. Ashley – a helpful bagging clerk from Belair Market, made a remark that California needs its own shine. We were discussing the fact that until recently New Year’s Eve is marked more by the East Coast Times Square ball dropping than any other event. Ashley then aptly commented “So where is our shine?”
Both of these activities brought me to thinking more about shine. We each have the ability to shine. We just need to know who we are and what we are good at.
Is it time for you to think about your shine? Has your shine changed over the years? Are you getting ready to shine in a new and different area? Ask yourself Where is my shine?
