According to my mentor’s greatest teaching, the number one question worth answering is purpose. In other words, “What is this for?” A frequent question that greets me as a writer is, “Why?” It might appear the same as “purpose,” but often it is not. A seemingly innocent “Why do you write?” Or, “Why write about kindness?” might be a […]

Why is it that in the very end we immediately think back to the beginning? What is it about wrapping things up that piques our interest to revisit the past? 2014 was a year of so many endings and their correlated new starts.
When it comes to relationships with others and with ourself any sort of ending sparks a renewed focus upon how it all came to be.
Looking back on those delightful nights being regaled by my father’s flare for storytelling, I realize the greatest lesson he ever taught me: Never give up. Even when faced with peril and potential loss, the inventors kept signing-up for the contest. Coincidentally my dad reflected all of his “made-up” characters in relation to his own inner drive and desire for success.
These were two “good” options with different projected outcomes. Approaching my delightful dilemma with determination to honor my true passion and drive helped to navigate the decision. I asked myself a crucial question: What choice would I make if money was not a factor?
Money as a motivator seems attractive to many of us. After all, we live in a transaction-based world where the common currency is strips of paper and metal discs rather than our consistency of character. How could we not base our accepted possibilities upon dollars and cents?
How do we quiet the incessant and often-nonsensical unhelpful static to make space to be led by the direction of our inner voice? In other words, how do we listen to our truth?
When we are faced with a pivotal choice it is amazing how many of us choose to ask everyone for what to do next except the one entity that actually lives with the effects of our decisions: Our inner self. Why do we give up our power? Why do we abdicate actively participating in our future?

Are strong emotions from others overwhelming to you? Do you cringe when the vocal noise level or tone of voice suddenly changes abruptly in the space you are occupying? Have you considered undertaking self-flagellation for feeling so sensitive to certain environments and personalities?
