I Give Up!

I Give Up!

Three words that most people have never heard me say.  I GIVE UP!  But right now, right here, I am ready to concede. The leader of my own life and the leader of inspiration to others, I have decided to quit. I am stopping.  I am dropping the ball.  I am resigning. I invite you to join me in this defeat. So, what exactly are we doing in this new movement calling me to cease? I give up my need to think that I can control or change others. I resign any belief that I have the right answer. I concede any temptation to blame someone else, or some circumstance for where I am today, or where I am...

Bursting with Change!

Bursting with Change!

It has been far too long since my last post.  Life has been so full and so much is happening that once I got behind, it was a challenge just to decide what to talk about.  Regardless of my excuse (because it really isn’t relevant now), I apologize for the delay.  I have thought of sharing with you each day, even if my fingers didn’t make it to the keyboard. I am sure you have noticed by now, but the world didn’t officially end on 12/21/12.  Well, not officially anyway.  I didn’t end, but it did change…and the change continues.  Truth be told, it has been changing all along and well before...

Want World Peace?  Educate Our Girls.

There are children starving all over the world.  The largest and hungriest group starving are girls.  Many of them are not starving because their families can’t feed them, or because of lack of food.  Many will spend their whole lives in this weak and hopeless condition of constant hunger; making them dependent on others for their very survival.  They are starving, even when they are eating.  What they are hungry for is knowledge.  Education.  A chance to learn.  To read, to write, to think beyond the walls of the barriers others have placed before them. There is freedom in education....

YOU are the Difference

YOU are the Difference

It was something of a revelation for me when I realized that I am not here to make a difference.  I had spent most of my adult life with the idea of making a difference.  Then the opportunity hit me – the opportunity to be in conversation with someone else who was also here to make a difference.  I wanted to know how she was going to go about it when it suddenly struck me that it isn’t in the doing that matters.  Like most other meaningful things, it is in the BEING.  I am not here to make a difference.  I am here to BE THE DIFFERENCE. I speak fairly regularly on the subject of...

Start Something!

Start Something!

and to start a blog in mid-sentence is poor English and somewhat confusing to the reader. Wouldn’t you agree?  Me too – but I’m not going to let anything get in my way today…not even the challenge of not knowing where or how to start.  Writing a blog article is an interesting process most days.  And then there are the other days.  The days when you sit down with a whirlwind of ideas and none of them come out in a sensible form and so you sit and wait for some semblance of order to materialize.  Sometimes it comes.  Others times it doesn’t and the first sentence...
