President’s Message

Hello to all of our South-Central members.  I trust that your summers have gone smoothly and that you are gearing up for a busy fall and Christmas season.  In my address to the members at symposium, I spoke of change.  As we experienced an awesome “Grow” symposium, I hope that we all took the time to embrace change.  Change is an integral part of lives and growth.  Change is imperative if we want to become the best ”us” that we can be.  I would remind you to look inward and see where you need change to be a better version of you, (we all need this from time to time.)  Look around to see where you can affect change in your community, business or even family.  I would also encourage you to reach out to your current board to ask questions or make suggestions as to change that needs to occur with our South Central Region.

Socrates once said, “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”  Change has always been hard for me, I am not a fan of change.  Our furniture always sits in the same place, we move it to clean and put it back, I have habits in the morning that I do when I wake up, I don’t change those or the order they are in.  Many of us are just like that, we like things the way they are “supposed to be”.   If, however, we want to grow and get better at anything, change is a must.  I hope that throughout this year as we “Grow” together, that we can embrace the change of the future and not focus on the “way things were” in the past so that when we come together again, we are all better than we were before.  Personally, professionally and in every aspect of our lives better.  I personally hope to grow in my design style and presentation style throughout this year.

I am thrilled to be your president and I want you to know that I don’t take the responsibilities lightly.  I am looking forward to seeing many of you at our spring forum or next year at symposium.  Thank you to each of you for the role you play in our region, and I hope that you will let us know if you want to be a part of this great leadership team.  This is going to be a great year and I am excited to see all the great things each of you accomplishes throughout our year together.  Blessings to all of you.  Keep blooming and go out and make something beautiful today.
