Hey there, my friends. Have you been spreading your wings this past week? I have.. I have also been expanding my point of view.
As I reflect, I have discovered that I have been doing this for decades now. First in my public relations work and, certainly, as host and producer of my show. While, I have not become the country or globetrotter that I aspire to be, through my work, I have in a sense, travelled the United States and the world via the phone or internet. I have met and connected with people from all over! In the process, you all, I have managed to sharpen and maintain my “strength” through communicating and working with others from a variety of backgrounds and cultures.
Friends, we should indeed spread our wings and, also, expand our frame of reference or view of the world and cultures within it. Communicating with others who exist outside of our immediate circle of influence or community, allows us to understand people who come from a variety of backgrounds. We become more “open minded” and less tolerant of ‘small mindedness” or “small thinking”. As a fan of Shark Tank television show, I have, on occasion, heard Kevin O’Leary share his experience of living in other parts of the world as a child/teenager with his mother due to his stepfather’s various work relocations. He talked about how those experiences sharpened his business acumen as well as his understanding and view of the world economy. He also shared how he developed an appreciation for other people and cultures. Developing an expanded worldview will give us the soft skills that we need to build on our strengths. Listen, if you are not globe or country-trotting yet, use the internet and telephone to connect with others.
You all, let’s continue to light up the world with our presence. Strengthen your strengths and stay safe. Also, remember to strengthen your immune system by eating healthy and taking a good multi-vitamin; wear your mask; watch your distance; and wash your hands often. Be well. In Jesus Name. Amen. And, so it is.
