Never Apologize

In the past couple of weeks I have said this very phrase to two different members on my team when they apologized for their struggles.

I am blessed to work with those who are authentic human beings who trust each other and are willing to share both the good and the bad.

Echoes of Silence

Echoes of Silence

It has been 24 years today and I still miss you. Although, no longer overwhelmed by grief or sadness, my mind at times still wonders what might have been. And to quote Soren Kierkegaard:

Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.

I am moving forward creating and pursing new dreams, all the while carrying the memories of you with me. You are not forgotten and never will be no matter how long the silent echoes loudly thunder across the heavens.

You scared? Well…

The world tells us what to do, what to say, what to be and what to feel.

“Jesus wept.”

Some would say this is a weakness, a failing, a lack of …something. I tend to believe it was and is a great strength.  For only in our empathy can we truly love and care for another with no ulterior motives.  Only when we acknowledge our own fears and failures can we even begin to offer some of the better parts of ourselves.  You have exactly what someone else needs.

Acknowledge the fear, do it anyway and just believe!
