one year ago …

One year ago I started this blog not knowing where it would take me or you.   If you stop by and you find something of value that is great.   I do hope that you find words that will inspire you, cause you to think about your contribution to this great world we live in or cause you to reflect on where you have been.

Life is a journey – where do you want it to take you?

of monsters and angels

“As our world becomes increasingly interconnected, we need to find better solutions that will include everyone in today’s opportunities.  Monster will always exist.  There’s one inside each of us.  But an angel lives there, too.  There is no more important agenda than figuring out how to slay one and nurture the other.”   Jacqueline Novogratz  from The blue sweater.

 

What an impressive quote.  Our nature contains darkness and light.   The monster resides in the darkness and the angel in the light.   To discover that which darkens our nature is a challenge and the bigger challenge is of course how to manage and control that force that tends towards destruction.   

How do you embrace the light?   How do you grow within so that you accentuate the positive in other’s and in yourself?  What specific actions do you need to take?

It does take great courage to face your own shortcomings and then greater courage to make the needed changes to overcome those shortcomings.

What do you want to become?   That might be the most challenging question.
