Valorie Kondos Field knows a lot about winning. As the longtime coach of the UCLA women’s gymnastics team, she won championship after championship and has been widely acclaimed for her leadership. In this inspiring, brutally honest and, at times, gut-wrenching talk, she shares the secret to her success. Hint: it has nothing to do with “winning.”
It has been a long time since I have made a post. It is 8:38 AM as I write this, and it marks the astrological event called the Winter or Summer Solstice, depending whether you live north or south of the Earth’s equator.
The solstices marks either the longest or shortest day of the year. And throughout history, this has been celebrated by all cultures and religions as alternately a time of rebirth and death. Often called the The Festival of Lights.
Focus on your rebirth, your awakening in these dark times. And pass it forward.
Offer your love to the world, from a smile, to helping a stranger or giving a dollar to spread this message. Happy Solstice to you and your loved ones across the globe.
