    The worst thing a woman can do is betray herself. Awareness helps us not to do that, awareness of our heart and soul and its potentials and desires. Are you willing to live your life knowing there was a dormant life force within you that you never took advantage of, never expressed it, the world never experienced you in your full magnificent power? I wasn’t willing. Even if the journey that I am on, my entrepreneurial journey is not all milk and honey as they say, even though there are moments when I doubt myself and feel I am a total failure and there is no God and I will never make it how I planned it, even then, I would never go back. I would never erase this exquisite growth and discovery I have been on for the last 2 years. And it all started when I realized that coaching might be my Zone of Genius.

    That moment became my new birth, at that moment I felt deeply, and for the first time in my life, that all the aspects of my being finally aligned to its true purpose and way of expressing they were always meant for. All the trauma and hardship became the learning I needed to have in order to understand and have complete compassion with the clients I work with. Had I never experienced it, I wouldn’t be able to provide help and support that people now need. Knowing that I am not afraid of any human emotion makes me stable and calm in the face of my client’s storms and it makes them feel deeply secure and held in a safe space to experience the depth of their souls and come up on the other glorious side – the side only they have, the side of their Genius. And boy, what a humbling and magnificent experience that is!

    Never give up even when it feels damn hard, cos help is always on the way. Believe me, it is.

    #2 Only one major proviso Amy, "made our life truly ours" - the home is a rather special thing, far more than the statement "no place like home". I am no longer an answer to the question "what do you do?" my home is the answer to "what do you love?". Work took meaning away from home, now in the 21st Century, home must take meaning away from work - if this does not happen, then the technological advancements we make in this century is simply an exponential extension of the industrial age.

    Loved the post! One thing I have done well over the last two decades is to focus on foundation first and while that focus means I give up some "greater glories" - much of that thing we like to call "success" simply takes us to other places, working on other plans. I have not tried to "simplify" my life, but ensure home is the place I return to often, if not a lot. I also ensure I appreciate that which is utterly priceless in my home, which is my family.

    What I have given up is living out of a suitcase, moving from airport and hotel, to airport and hotel - for sure I am not directly involved with meeting high-flyers and people at the top of their professional game - but even after the lovely hugs and welcomes, everyone departs back to their respective homes. Half my kids have graduated, the other half are still working their way through university and all of them will have graduated by 2019 - so this time I have with them is ever so important and ever so precious.

    One day all of them will be moving along their respective careers, some will marry and move to new homes, some will still be around, but ALL are committed to remain connected no matter where they are, and with modern technologies, everyone is just one Face-time away. It is a good age to live in - and then there is the arrival of the next generation - another one this year in the form of a second grandson, and that part of the family tree will over time spread its branches also.

    That is why I love this post - I am reading the writings of a true kindred spirit and I dig that - nup scratch that, I love that !

    I've never been anywhere Deb. Just the USA and Canada. Going to Mexico will be my first time in a country where the native tongue is not English. I was taking Spanish lessons when I lived in LA, for a little while. I lived in a Hispanic neighborhood. I walked by an alley where kids were playing in the back of a house. One kid -- "Perro!" Dog. I was electrified, illuminated. A jumble of Spanish and a word came through. I'm committed to learning Spanish when I get back. Finally. I like the language.

    #24 #25 An intricate non-American....those words really make me smile! In both France and Spain, on my first trip out of the country, I was comically thought to be Irish on a few occasions... the red hair does tend to create the illusion, but I am quite proud to not sound like an American when it comes to an openness of mind and willingness to observe how to be as local as feasible....and lately the Hondurans and Brazilians have also been a bit confused as to my origins since I wield a great copy and paste!

    It's all down to books - to reading giving me the gift of being a citizen of the world.

    I like this, Deb. "I decided it needed a name besides 'there,' so I started calling it home." That's a surprise that grounds the reader.

    #7 @Deb Helfrich, thank you for the mention and your kind words. They say that timing is everything so I am glad that my most recent pieces evoked emotion in you; and brought you here with this beautiful piece of artistry. The imagery and narration is captivating and you transport the reader to another place in time. There's magic in selecting just the right colors for your palette and then mixing them together to bring a canvas to life. The richness of the pigment - and sometimes the dullness of it - can combine together to create something completely different than the artist may have intended. That's the beauty in pigments, and in life, the mediums that we can add to it to create a tapestry that we come to know as life. Thank you, Deb. This piece brought me to a special place today. One that was much needed.

    #13 It is incredible to hear, @Fatima Williams, that I was able to transport you to another time in your life. Most of us have had those transitions where we felt an outsider, a watcher and not a participator. And in my case, being a spectator invokes that sense of being in the cheap seats watching a magnificent performance spread out below, where what unfolds is tidy and planned and deeply full of meaning.

    #2 I resisted coming online for so long and it is still a little strange how quickly I found a way to contribute just by being me. I definitely thought I'd be a visitor to social media.... but maybe it was that lack of expectations that freed me up to not just do what others were doing. It is quite a zen practice to respond to what arrives in the feed. Seeing the ebb and flow of people and ideas and not staying attached to any one, so that the meaningful can ripen and bloom into.... lessons.

    Ironically, that is what happened with my book. Random snippets started to add up to themes and patterns and chapters and ultimately a tale.

    "Life is nothing but lessons" - how true @Deb Helfrich! The interesting thing is that ever since I saw that sign and took the picture of it, it's been on my mind. I knew that there was a post in there but I didn't connect the dots at first. But the more I thought about it, the clearer it became. I believe that I needed to open my mind too -get rid of the inhibition and free myself to write. Many nights I come upon little things that I think "hey, I should write about that" and then I dismiss it. But I'm learning (slowly) that some things shouldn't be dismissed - they should be written about. i"m also finding that there is connectivity everywhere. We just need to stop and take the time to see it through. Thanks for your comments and your support. I truly appreciate it. You are one of the reasons I started becoming an active engager - so thank you. You've helped lead me to here.

    This is a big, juicy, meaningful post, @Laura Mikolaitis, started by a tiny sign. Life is nothing but lessons. The obvious thing that we struggle to understand is that they aren't presented in nice little packages prepared to tick off the next module in the lesson plan. Each lesson in life is dynamic and changeable, just as the conditions of life. We are the choosers of our own life lessons.

    #11 Maybe that is the explanation. After 30 years the trend seems to have stopped. But even during World War women continued to make those pictures and one wonders if they somehow communicated about it. Thanks for sharing your thoughts about this, Ali, I am very interested in them.

    I would not want to read what Freud might have said about women climbing trees with their names written on their backsides. Maybe we should ask @Candice Galek. Seriously, I think that it was the different style of clothing that obscures from us the humor in their actions. Chances are they were just goofing off for the camera, but we don't see that because of expectations based on fashion.

    #13 @Ken Boddie, thank you! I took your advice, by the way. I read your comment and thought "he's right." So when I sat down to write on Saturday and then again on Sunday, I just wrote. And I exceeded my goal both nights. I'm 7 days into this journey and I'm learning to just give in to the words and write. If nothing else, I'm building a spring board for something else. Like I mentioned to Lisa in my reply to her, at the end of this I will have clay to mold. It's my first time doing something like this, but if I don't try then I've already surrendered. Thanks so much for your kind words and encouragement - it is greatly appreciated!

    #12 Thank you, @Lisa Gallagher. I can relate to having that fuzzy feeling in your head. I've let many distractions impede me from writing: bad days, bad moods, not enough time, feeling tired - and the list goes on. But this exercise is teaching me a habit and you know what, I am beginning to feel like it's a normal part of my day. I have no outline for what I am writing, it really is stream of consciousness. I don't even know if it makes sense. But, as my friend so aptly pointed out to me today, at least at the end of this chapter I will have clay to mold; which is more than I had when I started. And for me, that's what it is about. Creating the habit, learning the discipline, expending the time. Thank you, always, for your support.

    I don't know you, Laura, but one thing I've concluded in a short time is that YOU CAN WRITE, lady! If I may be so bold as to offer advice ..... I would stop counting words and minutes and just commit to daily writing. This reduces the hurdle to removing distraction and just doing it. Personally, when I'm on a mission I'm in the zone and I keep going for as long as the real world allows. I wish you focus and no distractions. Get on and break a leg.

    Yay, yay, yay! I know I am excited to see what transpires over this month of your commitment, @Laura Mikolaitis.

    One thing I know from writing my memoir is that I had to give up my thoughts on linearity. It was a story, it happened to me. I wasn't writing some confusing mystery with all sorts of time jumps. YET. Some days what arose for me to write about was something completely out of sequence. I remember the day when I opened the document - it was around 50 pages. Getting too big to navigate by memory and I thought I was failing..... but I stuck with it, and soon the time to cut and paste and get things in order and develop the narrative arose. Always believe. And don't knock research. Since my book was about my dogs, I had a rationale for wanting to add in some facts. A burst of writing always came after research. That whole fresh perspective thing.

    #1 @Deb Helfrich, I'm not sure where the words are coming from lately, but I'm going with it. I've had much on my mind of late and I suspect that is feeding into my inspiration. I've also tried to let my inhibitions go and simply write. And that has made a world of difference. Of course, that also means peeling back those layers a little more each time. But that's part of growing and evolving as a person and, dare I say, writer.

    I asked myself this question this week. Since my latest contract started I have been driving to work in the dark, with few on the road. Since I use mainly back roads to get there it can be pretty dark. But now the alternative; I'm will be driving home in the dark with a lot of other cars on the road. I'm a morning person, love the light in the morning, but considering some of the crazy drivers I encounter, I'm thinking; maybe this year I would rather not drive home in the dark. :-) Too bad we can't customize the sun to each person's wishes :-)

    I was a night owl some years ago, but I feel much better since 4 years or so when I realized that I was much more productive in the early morning hours when I am fresh than at the end of the day when I am quite tired. I really enjoy getting up really early, sometimes earlier in my free days than in working days. It works for me, and it does not mean it is this way in all cases.
    Concerning to the DST thing, I am sure that if experts can come with numbers to demonstrate the energy savings, better productivity, and health, it is very likely going to be like they say. In the case of Spain, some time ago @Javier beBee wrote a buzz about what we do in Spain with it, which is completely wrong since the times of Franco and his German mate, because we should be in time with greenwich and not one hour later like Germany or Italy. So we miss the benefits of the DST thing, but oh, we are european (or they say so)

    Thought provoking article and very topical. Here in North Wales, UK by the time the clocks "fall back" it's dark when I get up at 6am regardless of the change and it's really only those few weeks each side of the summer solstice that it's still light when I go to bed. Whilst I do miss the daylight generally during the winter months, the clock changes seem to make little difference to me, I just run round the house changing the ones that don't do it themselves and try to carry on like nothing's happened wondering why I'm hungry earlier than usual for a day or 2. The one thing I would change is having a little message on my phone that says "Yes, your clock has been adjusted to BST (or GMT) " to save that split second panic when I wonder "has it? hasn't it?" and rush downstairs to turn on the TV just to check.

    @David B. Grinberg liked your article in a general scope, but do not agree with the summer time, it's only to save energy, but do not believe anything anyone talk about energy, after what happened to Tesla, in my country, power wires are placed in towers, my brother is an electrical engineer, working on a major international power company, the only reason not to put the wires on the floor out, what would generate major savings for the company and for the people, the answer? many earn tuition fee with the purchase of material, as soon as a system that generates maintenance is not feasible, I am building a small power generator by means of magnetism, if you can, never pay for energy in my life!

    #8 @Chas Wyatt Thanks for your valuable comments. I agree with your astute observation that, "Our measurement of time is abstract and illusional..." -- that's a great point to explore further. This is particularly relevant when considering "time" from the vantage point of cosmic time and Einstein's space-time continuum, in which both space and time are one unit forming the fabric of the universe. But perhaps that's for another blog post. I recall reading about a primitive culture somewhere that doesn't even believe in time, much less act upon it. I think the bottom line is that time is relative depending on the person making the observation and considering the larger context. cc: @Ali Anani @Milos Djukic @Aurorasa Sima @Irene Hackett @Flávio Rodrigues Vieira

    #5 And to answer your question (oops), it's most of what you mention, but I'm not convinced of #3. Self-absorbed, yes, but I think given an opportunity, most of us care passionately about things that impact our lives. I also think the pendulum on that behavior is starting to swing the other direction, based on the reading I've been doing about the growth of business models that include sustainability, employee engagement, and personal responsibility strategies. Yes, I'm an optimist, I own that!

    #5 I'm not so sure it's age related, @David B. Grinberg, my neighbor is my age. I think it has more to do with our lack of self control when it comes to our electronic devices. The more we get sucked into them, the less we practice our in-person social skills. As a parent, it's something I've been working on for years. It recently occurred to me that I can persuade and guide other adults about this, too. We have to be good ambassadors. I'm really enjoying Melissa Hughes' book, Happy Hour with Einstein. Her book offers a high level description of how certain interactions, activities, and messages impact the actual structure and chemical make-up of our brains. It's given me a lot of ideas to implement at work and at home.

    I really like your tips for more effective in-person communication, Sarah. It's troubling when members of younger generations, Millennials and Gen Z, appear like the proverbial "deer caught in a headlight" when it comes to in-person communication -- even over the phone. However, who's really to blame here:
    1) Parents and/or schools for not teaching conventional communications?
    2) The tech-industy, parents and schools who have made it possible for kids to be born with smart devices as veritable appendages?
    3) A society that has become so distracted in today's frenetic mobile, digital and virtual world that too many people just don't care enough?
    4) Or all of the above?
    What do YOU think?

    women possess truly some wonderful quality for which they are revered across the globe. but, i guess, when woman acts as a statesman, it is her acumen and management quality, which eventually made her famous. however, state, we have noticed accordingly, sometimes appear as a male and sometimes as female, having no such discerning quality what we are obsessed for while considering a female's quality and attributes. so, the traditional out look regarding females have nothing to do with statesmanship. however, nice insightful post sir@Jim Murray. enjoyed read. thank you for sharing the post sir.

    It is a little different for this time in America, never has the Political Charade been so transparent in its' lies, shenanigans, bribes and thuggery. If you want to know how it ends, look to Ukraine. They games my old unit pulled in 2013 are the EXACT same that are being deployed in the US now. Look forward to 'invalidated' elections, martial law, destabilization of currency and a determined dose of armed conflict / ethnic clensing / civil war. Wait and see, watch and learn. And getting it in early - "I told you so"

    Meanwhile in Canada Trudeau faces an ever growing unhappiness with liberal leaning policies on the TPP and CETA programs. Yes ... frustration and political unhappiness are everywhere. While some of us "old folks" adapt and know the lingo and try to be part of the ever present movement of youth ... of change ... all I need to do is look here to see our intolerance and lack of diversity to understand why our lip service is doing little to influence anyone and reminds our youth (just like when we were young!) not to trust us. old folks. Come of everyone... you do realize that the POTUS is not going to improve Canadians lives anymore than the lives of we US citizens ... right? Politics. Money and Power. None of our choices this election are going to make a meaningful difference to the US or the world. Just a lot of scare tactics being used ... because hey ... it has worked for every election since I can remember. Obama, Reagan, GW Bush ... and Trump have all been compared to Hitler. We have all been told how if these men got into office the WORLD WAS DOOMED. Study your history. And please ... don't start with the "BUT THIS TIME" BS. This time is no different than all the other times. Political games, nothing more. Wake up. Read your history know the truth and stop simply being a political sheep. Just my opinion.

    #35 If there's one thing Republicans have demonstrated for the last eight years - from the moment they all gathered and agreed to obstruct ANYTHING Obama tried to pass - they've demonstrated that they're the Party of No. I expect President Clinton will Get Shit Done. It may be good or bad, but it will get done. Especially if the Republicans lose the Senate, which may happen the way Trump is painting the party as utterly incompetent and worthy to wear only hats made of tinfoil.

Yes there are folks who have fully committed to a candidate. That believe. But a huge number of folks are indeed, it seems, prepared to vote against someone. Fear ... the greatest manipulator of them all. I commend everyone who is voting FOR someone. Take full responsibility for your vote. Democracy in action!! Close

    Wow! So flattered and honoured to be mentioned here. Jim clearly shares my admiration for Hillary Clinton - yes, I know she's a very flawed individual in many ways - but she's also supremely confident to lead the US and what I like about her is she ain't no victim!

    Wow, thanks for the mention and kind words, Jim! I'm honoured to have helped inspire this post. Good to see someone speaking out on what's good about Hillary Clinton...as flawed as she is in other ways...because you're right, she's not only highly qualified to be President, she may well be the most qualified candidate we've ever had. The Republicans have been insulting American intelligence for decades now giving us a stream of incompetent, semi-literate boobs, each worse than the last...Dan Quayle, George Bush, Sarah Palin, and now the Trumpocalypse.

    I like Hillary Clinton because she's a "power feminist" - the opposite of what's still unfortunately too common in feminism, a 'victim feminist'. I'm re-reading Naomi's early '90s Fire With Fire feminist tome which clearly delineates the difference between victim and power feminists. The former still define themselves as victims and refuse to take responsibility for themselves, and fear power, even their own. Power feminists are like Hillary Clinton - they assume they have a right to it, they don't ask for it nicely like a good little girl and hope those all-powerful males will give it to them.

    It's the reason why I've only in the last year or so begun calling myself a 'feminist' again after having taken leave of it twenty years ago like so many women did because the movement was still stuck in the victimhood of the '60s and '70s. It still is, unfortunately, but I suspect this Nasty Woman is going to be as much of a shakeup to victim feminists as she is for overprivileged white males :)

    @Paul Walters Obama is and always has been pure Soviet Cult of Personality shill - from day one. https://youtu.be/9gtfizIbBDI
    Name another President that commissioned children to sing about him. Certainly Stalin did, Certainly Hitler Did - - and had Lenin lived long enough - he surely would have too. Prattling Propaganda right out of the Marxist Revolutionary Handbook. https://youtu.be/tcm0oAcEey0
    'The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president.” - tis why I left, tis why I will surrender my citizenship if she is 'elected'. Hillary will be nothing more than the continued march down the Shining Path of Communism for America. PS - America was never penned as a 'democracy', it was founded as a Constitutional Representative Republic - that difference & distinction are lost on America today.

    @Jim Murray Outside looking in. America will only realise what an incredible president Mr Obama was once he is gone. For me ( and its personal) Hillary offers a better alternative to the 'other guy' . Bring it on and Jesus, could American politicians get on with the job of actually governing the place. Its an incredible country and every single American should feel privileged and proud to live there !!!

    #33 @Jared Wiese 🐝 ObamaCare enrollment numbers were projected by the CBO to levels of 21 Million, it was downgraded to 13 million while actually only successfully enrolling 11.3 through the 'exchanges' - with a third being signed up for MEDICAID (Not Insurance) http://wapo.st/1TI3TE6

    Additionally, only 13 state exchanges are still active - of the 26 states that set up alignment with the original ObamaCare plan HALF have quit offering exchange program. http://bit.ly/2dUXFEG

    Of the ACO - Affordable Care Organizations - the 'ObamaCare' nom de plume of Pay for Quality vs Pay for Service models - HALF are struggling in market practices, in receivership or and have CLOSED due to cost constraints, provider participation and market realities. Why they fail http://bit.ly/1K0JqdA

    At the time of ObamaCare launch there were 41-44 Million 'Uninsured', by using the same reporting mechanism and body - the number is now 48 Million. Any 'gains' in 'coverage' were actually into Medicaid plans and not commercial plans - ie More Entitlements, no new market directed benefit despite despotic & draconian legislation http://bit.ly/2dH9vUI

    The cost of Premium, at time of lauch was to be controlled and administrated by the IRS - with an estimate of 10,000 per year for a family of 4..... that number is now 16,300 per year. http://bit.ly/2f6aHlt
    That is 163 over ten years (providing costs don't escalate - ha) that you could have PURCHASED a median level house

    I can do this all day - the number NEVER worked.

    #15 @Jim Murray that Hillary would continue the failed, flawed and fatal trends of the Obama Soviet is exactly why I would drop citizenship and never darken the country again. I spent a career in the military fighting the Soviet Union.....and y'all blindly elected a Lenin plagairist - his 'National Healthcare Plan' is the exact same set of lies that Lenin told during his 'Land for the Peasants' move that put him in power in the new Soviet. Line for line, lie for lie - copied and shoved down America's throat. You may disagree - but I am betting that you have read neither the PPACA legislation nor the 1908 works of Lenin, specifically "What is to be Done". Y'all elected a confirmed Marxist (by his own admission) and blythly bought the Cult of Personality. It may take two generations for America to unf*ck itself - if Hillary gets in, my bet is that it will never happen. PS - show me the numbers on the recovery and healthcare you are citing, because the series of data sets I have show nothing of an economic rebound nor improvement in healthcare.
