After months of glorious introspection, reflection and redirection I am glad to say that I am gradually getting back into the blogging saddle. More than ever I am aware that writing is important. I believe it is important because I enjoy it, but it is also important because it has served as a platform where the unheard voices are united.
It has not only been an online conversation, but primarily I have experienced individuals speaking to me directly which has been inspiring.
This blog is all about living a life that is testimony to being alive and not merely breathing. Surviving is the same old routine every day. Surviving is never facing your fears. Surviving is doing what is safe and expected. Surviving is never fully committing to relationships. Surviving is taking, being busy and ‘me’. Surviving is command-and-control. Surviving is the majority.
Living is facing your fears. Living is accepting the challenge and laying another down. Living is doing things different, new and better today even if it means you will fail. Living is being, giving and ‘us’. Living is connecting and collaborating. Living is the minority.
This is the blog for the minority. This is where the real voice of meaning is heard. Its message is one of bravery, creativity, innovation and change. This blog is a challenge for better, every day!
The journey always starts with ourselves. If we think we can change the world without doing the hard work of facing ourselves in the mirror, we have already lost the battle.
So here is the warning: Don’t read or reply to these posts if you are not serious about seeing through the change in society that frees us from ourselves; that frees us from sheepwalking.
Likewise, here is the mandate that comes with this blog: Read very carefully and REFLECT! …Then partake in the discussion and pass it on to others with the same instruction.
Life is not too short; it is exactly long enough for us to do what we have to. Get going!
