The Courage To Shift!

Climbing

I’ve never been interested in climbing the Corporate Ladder. It’s not that I’m unmotivated, fraternizing with the enemy has never appealed to me.  I dislike the image of trying to pry the grunge from my soul at the end of each day, only for it to resurface on next. For me personally, the amount of money received is not always worth the emotional investment. Don’t misunderstand, I know management is often forced to make decisions they might not necessarily agree with, and often have no choice but to be the conductor of bad news. The longer I live, the more I value the presence of peace in my life and as such my decisions are shaped with that goal in mind.

There is, however, a thrill associated with climbing my own personal ladder! I’d been marinating in the same position for a while, afraid of the unknown and the…

This is The Courage To Shift!

Parlay

When I finally stopped and drilled down to the source of feeling like something was missing from my life, I realized I had to do something different. I had two major wounds that weren’t healing, and they had become a cancer in my soul turning me into a person I didn’t want to become.  I needed to address a failing marriage and a dead-end career. Both would challenge my financial situation and while it would be hard, I knew I would be better off in the long run. I mentally prepared for the beatings I was about to take and set off on my life altering journey.

While I worked three jobs after leaving my marriage (two the entire time of my marriage) to complete the critical goal of becoming debt free, I knew my body couldn’t sustain that long-term. My full-time job required a 4am start and I worked…

Why Do Folks Do What They Do?

We have been discussing opinions and the difference of being opinionated. This topic is leading my thoughts to what makes us the person that eventually has informed or uninformed opinions. What happens that makes a tick and tock?

Lee Pylant Dot Com

Why do folks do what they do?

Is it because of them or is it you?

Maybe it’s the witness standing by,

Pushing a point, like a poke in the eye.

Ask a question, expect a response,

One comes back like a cat on the pounce,

Dang that hurt, not what I expected,

Right in the eye, a bit of expectorate!

They’ve said they love me, what happened to that?

Three strikes you’re out! Like Casey at the bat.

Is what we have no longer valuable?

Or perhaps our love is a bit too malleable.

Lest I be too quick to judge,

It’s best I simply weave and dodge,

Live to fight another day,

Or forgive and forget, who’s to say?

About Passion and How I Found It…

I would say that 99.9% of people that lack passion in their life, simply need to stop and remember. The passion is somewhere deep in the recesses of our soul waiting to be rediscovered.
(comments disabled here, please visit the original page)

I’ve been asked to write about my passion.  We hear this word thrown around a lot.  We’re all expected to have at least one passion, right?  Sometimes it’s not that easy to know what it is.  So today I’m going to talk about what passion feels like for me and what I am passionate about and how I found it.

So, as a little girl I think I was passionate about kitties.  Holding one evoked such a feeling in me, in my heart, in my brain, in my body.  One time in particular I remember being frantically told not to hold the kitty too tight (I may or may not have had a choke hold on the little fur ball). An adult, delicately but with purpose, tried to pry my surprisingly strong fingers from its little body.  I felt overwhelmed with something that I just had to act upon…I was so IN…
