Welcome and thanks for dropping by. A little about me. In February 2011, after working hard for about 23 years in the communications business, I was terminated by my employer. In the big picture, this was a good thing (although it took me some time to realize this). I was not enjoying myself anyway, and hadn’t been for a long time. But I just kept pushing through it, and buried my unhappiness deeper and deeper.
Leaving that life was hard and terrifying because it was all I had known, but it forced me to embark on a new journey, and to begin to face many issues and fears that were hard wired into me from a very young age. And now I am trying to uncover who I truly am. I don’t want to be defined by my past anymore. I am searching for meaning, and who I am meant to be. I want to help. And I want to be part of the change that I wish to see, that must happen in this world. I know how that sounds…but there is no other way to really say it.
I am realizing that life is made up of three big chapters: the first is learning, the second is earning, and the third is serving…that’s where I am now.
I am only really starting to scratch the surface, but so far the journey and the telling of it has been somewhat cathartic and therapeutic. It gets me out of my head, at least for a little while. So I hope you enjoy this collection of struggles, observations, thoughts, questions, and the odd eureka moment, from a guy just trying to make sense of today, and perhaps serving others along the way.
