Manager’s Memo 11-11-21
Maybe the secret sauce of life isn’t being strong. Maybe it’s being there for each other because, come on. Who really has it all together these days? This is a reminder to stop telling yourself or someone else to “be strong”. How about instead “be free”, free to be a mess one day and a warrior the next? It’s ok to be all over the place. We’re not robots. God created some of us with more emotions than others so we could “go forth” and be encouragers. Because, in the words of TobyMac “you know who’s going thru a hard time right now? EVERYONE. So, here’s another reminder: check up on the “strong” friend in your life. Your encourager. Because they could be faking it and need YOU to ask them for once “and how are YOU doing”. Just maybe, the secret sauce of life is no secret at all, but hidden under our busyness. The secret sauce isn’t about “being strong”. It isn’t about “feeling ok each day”. Maybe it’s about looking people in the eye and meaning it when you say “hey, you doin’ ok”?
