Messages: The grocery line

There’s the grocery store….and then there’s the specialty grocery store where the food is organic and healthy.  I try to shop in the latter as much as possible.  I believe that nourishing yourself with healthy foods is like practicing preventative medicine. It’s a worthwhile investment.  (I feel the same way about massages)

Not only are the offerings good…the people seem genuinely happy.  You can just feel it.

On a recent visit, I was on a mission: shopping for good tasting sauces with low to no sodium to add to stir fry vegies. When I found what I was looking for, I headed for the check out lane. I was third in  line at the two register  store.

Before I knew it, the second register was opened.

The gentleman in front of me with two items was ushered over.

I followed.

The person who opened the second register was an employee who worked in a different department.   When it was my turn in line, I had an item from my visit earlier in the week that I needed to return.  I was hoping this wouldn’t be a problem.

I mentioned that I was returning the item because the sodium content was too high (34%….in noodles! Who knew?).  Kathi, the “supplement manager” (it was on her name tag) smiled and asked if I would be using the same credit card today that I used to purchase the noodles.  I said yes and she said….

“no problem.”

Just as everything was put into my bag, Kathi shared that her uncle was on a strict low sodium diet and that her aunt buys a few good items that fit the bill. She offered to show them to me.  I took her up on her offer.  At that moment, one of the other employees came up in line and put a few items on the conveyor belt and said, “Since you’re here and finished (ringing me up), I thought you could ring these up for me.”

Kathi’s response: “I am going to show this customer a few things that I told her about first and then I’ll be back to ring you up.”

I followed Kathi and she pointed out some foods I may want to consider for other low sodium options.

All of her suggestions were good and related to my situation.

Not only did I thank her for her recommendations, I acknowledged her for putting me first.

When is the last time you acknowledged your team,

for doing something “right”?

Testimonials
For many years I have been searching for something. I felt stuck with the same repeating patterns, habits and beliefs. These patterns were ones that I did not desire. I had the urge to break free from them but felt powerless. I have read numerous inspirational books, changed my diet and even worked with an energy healer for several months. While these methods elevated my energy it was not the key towards the shift I desired. I am normally a DIY type of person but realized that this was an area that I could use help with. So in perfect timing I had the opportunity to begin coaching sessions with Lee. Each session is perfectly aligned to exactly what I need in that moment. She is very flexible, supportive and works from her heart. These qualities allowed me to be myself and to be open to receive guidance and move forward. I consider it a miracle what has manifested in the last several months since we have been working together. I moved out of a 14 year job that I was attached to but did not serve me. Simultaneously I received a new job opportunity which is exactly what I desire right now. We sold our first investment property which we had worked on for 3 years. Another investment opportunity manifested effortlessly. These manifestations were something in the past I thought would be difficult and time consuming to achieve. I now have the realization of living a life of my own creation and I chose which direction feels good. Lee is like my tuning fork. She helps me to stay focused on this wonderful path that she helped me to re-discover. Old habits still creep in and Lee helps me to realize them and continue to move past them. Lee is a precious wise soul that puts her heart into helping other’s remember their creative potential. Endless appreciation to you Lee! Norlen Linn Lempster, NH June 2015
