In numerology circles, there are three double-digit numbers called Master numbers, and 11 is one of those special numerals – a power number. Yes, this is my volleyball uniform number and there's a reason for it.
The master numbers require time, maturity and great effort to integrate into one's personality. and 11 is the most intuitive of all numbers. It represents illumination, charisma, and leadership. It walks the edge between greatness and self- destruction.
Eleven is a very spiritual number and this year will see new blessings and new beginnings. In November, we'll embrace 11/11/11. Next year, we'll enjoy 12/12/12. And that will be it — until 2/2/22.
So why not take this opportunity to recommit yourself not only to NALS and the education being offered in just about every avenue you can think of -- online, webinars, in-person monthly CLE at our local meetings and twice-a-year state conferences. There is a wealth of information and opportunities for our members and it is virtually at our fingertips.
This 1/1/11, I have decided it is time to recommit myself to myself. (Yeah, I know, funny sentence, but think about it). Recommit yourself to yourself. When you think about it, it's actually very simple. Of course, as women (and sometimes men), we put everybody in front of us -- our bosses, family, children, etc. Take a look at yourself and think about what has been missing. Quality time with your family? That 60 minutes of cardio we should all get to keep us healthy? Meditation time? Heck, something as simple as fresh fruits and vegetables. Go ahead, try to eat five servings of fruits and veggies a day and see how you feel. (I'm now having mine delivered to my house via Matt's Organics.) Just making these small changes and really recommitting myself to myself is huge. I feel more energetic and most of all, ready to take on life's everyday challenges, be it work or play.
Commitment pays off in the end. And speaking of commitment, CONGRATULATIONS TO NALS OF TUCSON & SO. ARIZONA! And thanks to Melissa Fuca, Audrey Saxton, Thelma Gonzales, and all of the other volunteers that helped with last year's golf tournament. Our golf tournament was submitted to the Jett Awards and we won! How awesome is that?! I'm totally jazzed about this and so excited for our association which will be recognized nationally at the Tulsa Conference in March.
And with that, I'm out. I will hopefully see you all at the upcoming CLE After Hours on Thursday, January 20, 2010.
