I went to a conference and the opening speaker said…

“You are invited to come here as you are.”

Isn’t that a lovely invitation?  Imagine how wonderful it feels to be welcomed to something just as you are – right in that moment.

Sure, we should always be striving to be better.

And yes, sometimes “as we are” is tired and cranky and really, who wants THAT at your next meeting or gathering?

But wouldn’t it be great if we felt invited “as we are” to more things?

I’d like to make that invitation more often – to myself and to others.
