Free to Be

Many people reach a point in their lives when what others think just doesn’t matter. Some reach that point earlier; we call those people free thinkers. Those who achieve that freedom of thought later in life are deemed wise.

I’m working on my freedom.

“What other people think of you is not your business.” ~ Deepak Chopra

Picture of Hate

When I see pictures of people being actively racist, I am always amazed at how the negative energy is reflected in their faces.

I wonder why they can’t see the toll hatred is taking on their very physicality.
I wonder how they continuously deny the impact of their actions on their psyche.
I wonder how their purpose has been thwarted … perverted.
I wonder what they could be doing if they overcame their fear.

“Hate is like taking poison and expecting the other person to die.” ~ Anonymous

Wife, Mother, Leader… Choose Two!

The United States continues to perceive leadership as the almost exclusive purview of men, insisting that for women biology is our primary, even ONLY destiny.

Lt. Col. Tammy Duckworth and her husband Maj. Brian Bowlsbey of Hoffman Estates, Illinois.

What I experienced and what I saw in my military career was that women with children could be wives OR they could be leaders, but it was rare to see a woman fulfilling all three roles successfully for any length of time.

But one leader at a time, that reality is changing. And I am here for that change!

Rededicated

Last night I crawled into my own bed for the first time in weeks. Exhausted and grateful, I slept soundly and woke up this morning feeling determined to get back on His purpose for my life.

Capacity to Dream

Capacity is simply the ability or power to fulfill your purpose. Capacity is raw, undiscovered, undeveloped, or unrefined. It is the talent to fulfill your purpose, the determination to not be deterred from your purpose, and the perseverance to stay on the journey to your purpose.

You’re not given a dream unless you have the capacity to fulfill it.” ~ Jack Canfield

Discover Purpose

Not everyone discovers their purpose early or gets sustained support if they do. That doesn’t mean we can’t act on our desires and use our talents to fulfill our purpose … as soon as we know what it is. In fact, it doesn’t matter how or even when we get to our purpose. It only matters that when the discovery is made, we strive to live in and on purpose.

The purpose of life is a life of purpose.” ~ Robert Bryne

Compelled to Purpose

Our purpose is sometimes revealed in unexpected, sometimes sad, even violent ways … like when we experience something personally or something happens to someone close to us and we feel compelled to act. Candy Lightner founded Mothers Against Drunk Driving after a drunk driver, who had a history of arrests for intoxication, hit and killed her daughter.

Whose life will be saved by the protection your passion puts into place?

The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Dream Purpose

We all have a purpose…our reason for being here. Our dreams can ignite a passion for a cause that reveals our purpose. And when we don’t fulfill our purpose, things come undone or don’t get done.

Who is waiting on you to fulfill your purpose?

At first dreams seem impossible, then improbable, then inevitable.” ~ Christopher Reeve
