When some people talk about showing up,
they mean making an appearance,
the dramatic entrance,
the fawning over,
and the exit
of a celebrity.
There, but not really,
is how they show up
in their own lives,
expecting everyone to be glad they
were graced with their presence.
If you’re going to create a life of substance,
something more than working for the weekend;
if you’re wanting to create connection,
more than, “Hey, how’s it goin’?”;
if you want to open others up to the possibilities,
showing up means more than appearing,
it’s being powerfully present,
Every. Single. Day.
