“There are no guarantees in the arena. We will struggle. We will even fail. There will be darkness. But if we are clear about the values that guide us in our efforts to show up and be seen, we will always be able to find the light. We will know what it means to live brave.”
– Brené Brown

An ARENA is any place you need to show up, be seen and be brave. The definition does not say you won’t be afraid. What arenas are you standing outside and afraid to enter? What has kicked your butt and you can’t even look at it or think about it?

2020 has proven there are plenty of arenas, new and old. We all have them. If we are to show up, be seen and be brave, we will need to go into life’s arenas when we are unsure, afraid, and seemingly outmatched. But in we MUST go to move forward. There are two very important things you will need when you go into the arena, someone who is willing to pick you up when you fall and absolute CLARITY of VALUES. You must know what you stand for and WHY. Your why is your VALUES and they give you the resilience, perspective and clarity to stay the course and get back up when you fall…and you will. This discussion invites you to possibly discover, reconsider, reinvent or reignite your values so that you know what you stand on and WHY so when you have those face down moments (and you will), you can rise again and again. 2020 is not a playground. It is a ring. Put on your gloves and let’s dance.
