There and Back Again

By Sarah Robinson

Wow. Here we are at Day 30 of 30 Days to Creating Irresistible Presence.

And what a journey the past 30 Days have been. Different for each of us but powerful just the same.

As a quick refresher, take a look back at Day 1. Some of you were here, some of you weren’t – and that is ok. But I want you to scroll through the comments to get an idea of where this all began.

To me it seems like a lifetime ago. (More about that in just a minute.)

First I want to tell you something about you.

Watching all of you over the past 30 days has been nothing short of astonishing.

I have intentionally stayed in the background of the conversations you were having because I never want the tribe to be dependent on me. And boy did you all rise to the challenge.

Such magical shifts, conversations and relationships have unfolded here – such a joy to watch.

As happened with 30 Days to Changing Your Game back in February, I am hoping that the relationships that many of you began here will continue long after this series is over.

And now I want to share with you a little bit about what the past 30 Days have been like for me. While I’ve been keeping with the blog posts, your comments and your journeys, I’ve been on my own journey – a physical, spiritual and emotional journey – with my family.

When you read this I will be somewhere over Iceland I think, returning from Russia with my husband beside me and our new fifteen month old son on my lap.

It will be the final leg of our second trip to Russia in three weeks; the third in six months.

While there are a handful of people who’ve known we are adopting, for the most part I’ve kept it very private. It is the biggest and most difficult secret I’ve ever kept from the Tribe.

My reasons for choosing this path are twofold:

The very practical facts are 1) there are about 1 billion points of failure with an adoption and 2) the Russian government isn’t exactly wild about public discussion of an incomplete adoption.

But there is more to it than that. And I think it really speaks to this whole idea of Creating Irresistible Presence.

I needed private, internal gestation time. Time when the idea of becoming a mom again was just for me and my family.

See, creating something real and true and irresistible, whether a business idea or a family, begins with a tiny thought or idea that needs shelter and protection so that it can incubate fully. Then when the time is right, it’s strong enough to reveal to the world.

And I’m betting that this 30 Day series has sparked an idea or two within many of you – yes?

Protect and nurture those ideas. Share them with trusted friends, supporters and mentors.  Give them time and space to grow. You need that time to cocoon up with your ideas so that they can take hold inside of you.

(And don’t be disappointed if not all of them do that – that’s just part of the process.)

Ah – but the one that does take hold – THAT’s the one that needs your attention and your love to grow into something strong and sustainable.

Give it all you have. Then one day very soon, you will announce it’s arrival to the world.

Now, as we close out 30 Days to Creating Irresistible Presence, I would love to know your biggest takeaway from this journey.  I never stop learning from you and am fascinated by all that you share.

It might be a favorite post, an ah-ha, a friendship, a comment, a business/life opportunity – or even one of the songs (you get brownie point for saying one of the songs – just so you know!).

So re-visit the person you were thirty days ago and share a little about who you are now.

While you are busy writing your usual brilliant comments, I plan on cuddling up with my biggest takeaway as we make the journey home. J
