Week 3: Feel the Love

As Leap 61 continues on our journey, one has dropped from the program, while another thought of doing so.

The latter was one of my councilmates, and thankfully our coach, the great Coey, managed to let him see that he is indeed Wholehearted.

He shared in our council meeting why he chose to join Leap. It was because of a friend who had a money goal, targeting about half a million pesos, and in the span of two months he was able to collate a staggering TWO MILLION PESOS!

So he asked how did his friend do it? "Love." was the simple reply.

Puzzled as he was, how can love, an emotion so complex, give you all that result and more.

So, as he continues on with the story, he tells us that after our Sunday meeting, he talked to his girlfriend, and she asked him if he had told us of his decision, to drop the course. He said, he has changed his mind as it was because of Love.

Like him, I feel the love of those around me as I continue on this journey. Apart from the personal goal (to publish my own Ebook) and professional goal (to present to 100 people, we also had an enrollment goal.

No doubt about it, I wanted my sister to enroll for Foundations of Leadership Excellence (FLEX).
At first there was hesitation, resistance even. When she did come, I was more than happy.

The second day, she was late. Of course I was freaking out, she was missing out on some of the important details, and more so the possibility of her not going was big.

Yet, she did, she did go, and at the end of the second day I received the tightest and longest hug I have gotten.

The hug coming from a girl who told me that we can never be close, and that I was just a friend of hers who she can help out whenever she could. The love was so overwhelming that I could feel her tears,  feel my tears.
