Sue Ludwig, one of the people I met in Christine Kane's Uplevel Your Life and Business programs, has a wonderful post up on Christine Kane's blog today along with a poem that blew me away.
Do yourself a favor and click this link to read the full article on Christine's blog today "Fledgling to Flight: Why You Matter as a Mentor" and I will pique your interest by posting Sue Ludwig's amazing poem "Fledgling" she wrote for one of her mentors (with permission of course!)
In the light of possibility
And though I saw you clearly
with your half smile
and knowing eyes
I wasn’t quite sure
why you cared.
Now I realize
you lead from a place of
I see how your gifts,
because you have been a traveler
on this very road
you unselfishly guide.
I experience your strength as you hold
my best self for me
even when I’m a flightless baby bird.
You know the depth but see the buoyancy,
know the doubt but see the hope.
You show me through your life
that the road is winding, imperfect,
and every step of the way
worth the journey.
