Mentor Monday Blog – A Lighthouse

Monday, June 18, 2018

This is a lighthouse in northern New Brunswick.

It helped guide ships for many generations through fog, rain, snow, ice and rough waters.

It has also been part of my life since I could remember.  The lighthouse was there for us regardless of the weather – its stoic stand in the midst of a bad storm was always comforting and on a bright sunny day it served as a backdrop for daydreaming about the future.

Mentoring is a bit like a lighthouse. My Mentors were always there for me – a welcome coffee in the middle of a busy day or an ear when I had a million questions.

Simple in design. Calmly guiding.

Many Mentors were my lighthouses. Who were some of yours?
