How are you choosing to show up?



I started making it a point to show up differently (at least on the outside) and slowly I noticed people saying things like, “Lisa, you are always positive….or Lisa, you have a lot of energy.” My ripple effect shifted.


I once had an employee tell me that I show up “busy”.


She mentioned it in passing, but it really stuck with me.


She was right. I talked about how I was busy in meetings, I carried lots of papers with me, and if someone else mentioned that they were busy, I was quick to chime in, “ME TOO!”.


I think that showing up busy made me feel validated and important. It was proof that I mattered and I justified it because I was still being nice while saying all the "busy" things. But her comments made me realize that I was leaving people with BUSY as my ripple effect…. It’s what they remembered about me.

“Busy” still slips in from time-to-time…but in 2023, I am choosing to show up brimming…yes, brimming. Brimming with energy that is productive, hopeful, and fun.


How are you choosing to show up? DM if you need a little inspiration or energy!
