Rise Up. Reach Down.
By sandyb on Jan 03, 2008
A few weeks ago, I blogged about Sun Women in the Boston area attending the annual Mass. Conference for Women.
Today, I'm tidying up my workspace, and found the program from this event with some of my notes (I resolve that next year, I'll bring a real notebook to write in because there was so much good content to jot down!)
A quote that I'd jotted down from Pulitzer Prize winning author, Anna Quindlen's keynote caught my eye.
"Rise Up. Reach Down."
She talked about her family and how women's roles have changed over time and during her lifetime. Her story was of three women who happened to be her mother, herself and her daughter. But, the one thing that she said that really made an impact on me was something very simple but profound: "Rise Up. Reach Down."
With the start of the New Year, we look for inspiration as we look ahead to the next 365 days (actually 366 days in 2008!)
These 4 words are my inspiration.
