When Your Life Changes

Obnoxiously in the zone

This is what a zealot looks like, at least the Disney/Glacier version.

Obnoxiously in the zone.

What?

i’m experiencing a David versus Goliath type of business freedom that i never saw coming.

Never dreamed of this freedom.

Never wished for this powerful freedom.

What is Goliath going to do if i walk away?

What seemed like a sure thing for Goliath is looming as a loss. And not only a loss, but a once in a lifetime loss.

Why?

Long story short: world-class, time-tested wisdom, expertise, and enthusiasm in a rare, unquestionably trustworthy partner is gone forever.

And for me?

A loss i hate to take but one i can afford.

The beauty of lightness

Every tiny spider we find in our house has great odds of being caught and released. Only a life with margin in its schedule will think this scenario though and act on it.

The beauty of lightness.

Unencumbered.

Beauty.

Joy.

Gratitude.

Humility.

Just a brief thought-riff on the lightness i’m beginning to feel again. Haven’t felt this light since returning from Glacier National Park 40 days ago.

Light meaning caught up, not overwhelmed, proactive, margin in my daily routine.

But it’s so liberating

So many books – there are books crammed in horizontally on top of vertical rows. Note: what works for one may not for another. Not judging. Just comparing to my own standards.

But it’s so liberating.

What?

Being decently organized.

Embrace your hero’s journey

Glacier National Park postcards
Have you ever received a Glacier National Park postcard? Ever sent one?

Simplifying and delegating can be overwhelming.

Please don’t let this stop you.

If your current situation is a story about the hero’s journey, you know the part where there’s a huge challenge that has to be met or everything is lost?

This hard, mostly overwhelming (with no guarantee, mind you) work is a fire you must walk through.

Now that i’m clear

quote about independence
With God as my witness, this is a screen shot from an hour ago. i believe my wife and son always deserve an explanation.

Now that i’m clear, i feel a lightness that is literally indescribable.

Wow.

So cool.

Thriving to the next level.

Life is hard.

i get it.

i’m an alcolholic.

Probably addicted to sugar too.

And i used to smoke cigarettes, but only when i drank. And for 28 years, i only drank twice a week, on weekends and weekdays.

Dysfunction is nothing to be ashamed of.

It’s widespread.

But carrying some (self-imposed) unnecessary burden that it’s my job to fix it was unreasonable.

Ever hopeful. 

Optimistic to a fault?

Then the creative year-long effort to reveal the obvious.

Change can only come from self-motivation.

Let’s just admit where we stand and then be willing to accept it and let go of things we can’t control.

 PS. Facebook does not a solution make. Too public. Too impersonal. Like the dictatorial boss who thinks she can send memos to change her company’s culture…

PSS: Context – this post may seem hypocritical, like the boss writing the memo. Not everything is as it appears – private efforts remain private. i am at peace with the personal face-to-face and voice-to-voice efforts i have made in the past. Moving forward, these are always welcome. And i have retired from initiating them. Not initiating them in 2018 was the equivalent of the USA imposing economic sanctions on a country that takes USA’s generosity for granted, meaning a mental health professional agreed it would be a legitimate approach.
