Having space creates magic
I attended an altMBA reunion this week. The theme of the session focused on having space for ourselves, so that we could bring our best selves to others, to the world. Having space means taking time with yourself, by yourself and for yourself. Even in the company of others.
In my breakout group, I found myself with two people I’d never met. It didn’t feel like meeting strangers. We enjoyed an instant connection. Partially because of the shared experience of the ethos of altMBA. Partially because we all came from a similar part of the country (Louisville, Nashville and Bentonville, AR.) We instantly sensed a close kinship, warm trust, intellectual spark, and stirring connection. In that hour, we felt space for ourselves, for each other, and for the gift of the unique moment we had been gifted. It was magic.
That’s it for this week. Feel free to use the time you would have spent reading this article – and more, if you’d like – to be with yourself, by yourself and for yourself.
