A Little Wisdom from Wendy
Spring has always been a favorite time of year for me. There is something inspiring and downright magical about the early days of spring, when the cold and barren landscape turns to lush greens and vibrant kaleidoscopic blooming flowers. Spring is a busy time of planting, tending, nurturing and watering. The days get longer and warmer and we seem to have a palpable “spring in our step” as we go about our daily routines. Spring is all about rebirth, growth, hope and joy; and I love every aspect.
Here at the Impact 100 Global Advisory Council, we are feeling quite inspired this season. Tolstoy said it beautifully in Anna Karenina, “Spring is the time of plans and projects.” There are many exciting plans and projects in the works through Impact 100s around the globe. We’re working with Impact 100 groups “springing up” and encouraging long-standing Impact 100 chapters to thrive in this time of member recruitment and “rebirth” for the current grant year.
These are exciting days for Impact 100 leaders, and they can also be exhausting. As you cultivate new members, encourage your existing members and plant seeds with prospective members, remember why we are so busy this time of the year. We bring women into our chapters in the spring to empower and encourage them so that together we will transform our communities through our significant grants every fall. And then we begin again.
Thank you for your plans and projects this spring. We are growing together.
