We check in with the good folks at Every Monday Matters every week. They always have really good, thoughtful content for us to build our week around. And we love the shared experience of knowing that folks all over the country are focused on the very same thing.
This month's theme is particularly important to us here in The Mix, because we spend a lot of time and effort to help our members and their guests feel cared for. From a cup of hot coffee and a yummy snack to the little touches throughout the space, it's our goal to maintain "the vibe" we have become known for. If we had to give that vibe a name, it would be "caring."
Here's what EMM had to say:
Last week, we were encouraged to "Be a Bright Light" . . .
‘Tis the season of bright lights. Lights on houses. Lights on trees. Candles flickering and fires burning in fireplaces. Yard art and decorations in every neighborhood. It’s festive all right. And, despite the usual holiday stress, all of these lights, somehow, do their magic to lift our spirits. Glowing, warm, sparkly lights have a way of doing that. However, while the candles, firewood and string of lights are doing their job to bring joy, how are we doing at lighting things up? Are we bringing inspiration and glee and lifting people’s spirits? Well, this week, we’re going to, for sure. We want you to BE A BRIGHT LIGHT. Have you ever been referred to as or referred to someone else as a “bright light”? You know, that person that just lights up a room? Think for a minute. What does a person who lights up a room really do? It is what they say? How they act? What they wear? Well, wherever you think that special spark comes from, we think we should bottle it and sell it. It just might be the hottest gift of the year. Let’s all make this world just that much brighter. Let’s be a guiding light of joy and good tidings. Being a bright light matters.
This week, we are embracing the L word!
Besides food, shelter, and water, there is one thing that none of us can live without. It is something so deep and so connected to the core of who we are as humans. It warms our hearts. It lets us know that we matter and that someone cares about us. And, truthfully, it never really looks the same way twice, because it comes in so many special packages. Are you onto us? It’s called, “Love.” It’s the stuff that touches our soul and just so happens to be the topic of nearly every #1-music hit. So, this week, it's time for us to love love, or to CHERISH LOVE. What are things that you love more than anything? It could be a person, a pet, an experience, good food, getting out in nature... the list is endless. More importantly, what is it that you love so much about them? Have you really ever broken that down? And, what about the people in your life? What do they love more than anything and how do you help to bring more love into their life? See, one of the most magical aspects of love is that it can be both given and receive and the impact is nearly identical. Everyone and everything wins with love. And, we promise, there can never be too much of it. So, let’s create the most loving world possible. Cherishing love matters.
We hope that our members and guests enjoy our small gestures to create something more than a workspace. We LOVE what we do!
