Leading with Love: “the why”

I’ve been sitting here wondering what to write about in the inaugural “Leading with Love” blog post, and I have decided what better thing to start with than why I am doing this. Bear with me.

There’s always been an element of struggle in my life. On and off I have struggled with things like making connections, my self confidence, depression and anxiety, negative self-talk, finding my purpose in life, and the like. All of these struggles, when I allow them to lead, really drag me down and send me into a negative tailspin. The only remedy, I’ve learned, is to “lead with love.”

Furthermore, I have learned that I am not the only person in life that struggles from time to time. And I started thinking that if I “lead with love” more frequently and intentionally in my interactions with others, maybe I can help ease the burden of their struggles, and infuse joy into their lives.

That is “the why” behind “Leading with Love.” To help. To inspire. To encourage. To pursue purpose. To cultivate joy.


  1. Great insight. The world is a broken place. More love, and those who are committed to it’s practice and application, are desperately needed right now. You’re a shining light!

  3. Thank you for your real, vulnerable blog. I’m surprised by it. When I met you many years ago I never thought of you as lacking self-confidence nor that you would ever struggle with anything. You are a bright light! It just goes to show how we never know what someone is going through. I’m so happy you started this blog. You eminate love, kindness, and care for others. Love back at you! My wish is for love to fill you with whatever you need.

    1. Thank you so much for the comments and the love, Mary. It’s true, that you don’t know what people are going through. I think a lot of people struggle, but we live in a world that makes it hard to show that. That’s one of the reasons I decided to start this – to shed a light on that and try to do my part in being mindful of those struggles in our interactions with others. If we choose to lead with love, I think we are capable of making a positive difference in the lives of others. 🙂
