Monthly Blog: Re-Ignited (and It Feels So Good)

By Susan Schilke; September 1, 2022

Summer is drawing to a close, and I am entering the third third of 2022 revved up and raring to go. This summer, and August in particular, brought revelations and renewal in the combination of immersive education and epic adventure. The adventure was found in the amazing large-scale nature of Alaska, and the education in a jam-packed workshop. And I’ve decided this combination – the insights of new information and the reset of new experiences – is a great way to get fired up.

My head and my heart are full as we move past Labor Day and get back into the routines of the fall. I am thinking about the importance of building trust with those you work with, the value of asking good questions and really listening to the answers, the role choice plays in our lives and the need to look at our own choices and understand the payoffs, and the concept of 100% accountability with zero blame. And I continue to revisit the vistas and adventure of our travels in my mind. I am reminded of the limited days we have in this amazing life, so I will continue to pursue new experiences with people I care about and then reflect with gratitude on all I learn.
