Lessons from the Show
Karen talked to us about her life and her service mentality and offered us many wonderful lessons that point us towards an authentic, happy and fulfilling life and career including:
- Recognizing, as she looks back, that she used to know her neighbors but had no relationships, whereas now she lives with a fabric of interconnectedness in a rich community, and that this is much more comfortable, reassuring, and generative;
- If we are to find happiness and stability, we must be willing to acknowledge that we hold fears that are not valid;
- To discover our true life, we must be willing to listen, and to make ourselves vulnerable..and to recognize that being vulnerable isn’t always about words, but can be about actions.
