Tom Lietaert, ICF Colorado Communications Chair Membership in the ICF Colorado Time to Celebrate! We hit 100 members last month! It was our goal! Let’s all take time to acknowledge ourselves for what we did to contribute to that. Maybe you invited someone to a meeting. Maybe you really connected with one of our guests, and then they became a member. In some way, just by being a member, you helped us reach out goal! We don’t always take the time we should to celebrate. Will you take a moment and dance in a circle to celebrate you? Humor me here! I think we miss the opportunity to celebrate all the great things we do in life. Take a moment and reflect right now on one thing you want to celebrate yourself for today. Acknowledge yourself for that and all the great things you do! I look forward to seeing you at the meeting and celebrating!
