One life – Only so many breaths.


It is said that much of life is what we make it, or is what life makes of us?

Did we ever really have all of the choices, or were we destined before we even begin life to do the things that we do, or be who we have become?

There have been many times when I know that I have wasted the limited breathes that each of us has been given.

I know that every one of us have only so many breathes, the number never known until the very last.

When we were young

We didn’t bother to count the number of breathes , we were invincible and life was ahead of us, fear was not even a word that we knew.

We could not even think of broken hearts, lost loved ones and the dashed hopes that each come across. Those days were yet to come.

The breathes that we took were of hope and a life to be lived, and dreams to be become reality and a life of fulfillment.

Our future was still unknown and we didn’t carry the thoughts that our life would have moments of sadness.

That life was not a straight path.

We didn’t even know who we would become.

Growing Up

We realized that not all of us have the same number of breathes and-along life’s pathways we lose some of those who should have had more.

We are reminded to use the breathes that we have for good use and not to waste them needlessly.

That we are lucky ones because some of those who were much more deserving never had the same number of breathes that we have.

That the fairness of life is simply not fair, but to waste the breathes that you have been given is much worse.

That while we make mistakes along the way, some have been given breathes to reflect and pay forward so that others can avoid foolhardiness and for us to renew our ways.

That to grow up for some creates an unimaginable stress as not all can see a pathway for their future, their destiny remains unclear and a life that is still a mystery.

Settling down

Reflecting on a near done life with some time still left to go, what messages do we desire to give, for we have found that life is different for everyone and yet every life has its own meaning.

What did we learn along the way, what was the same for each of us and what did it teach us.

We all have one life and a predetermined number of breathes, for each untold.

Yet we need to create a life that has dreams that can unfold, and so it is told:

One life only so many breathes a reflection

We were born to be the children of the universe

So that each can honor, serve, and knowledge disperse,

To make the best of what we are given,

Is God’s gift for all the living.

There are only so many breathes that each of us take,

So lets decide that they will be the very best we can make.

So that when we look back and then to create nurture

Our children can say we gave them a future

The lesson we leave is to use all our breathes no matter the number

To do the very best is what we must remember.

Soar on the breeze, blown by the Wind.


Soar on the breeze, blown by the Wind

You may have my heart but not my soul

Life brings what it does….  No matter.

 

I am in charge of myself let it be known

My mind is my compass; my heart my compassion

My soul defines my character, and who I am.

 

My journey to my destiny be clear comes with choices

To be led by the crowd or hold strong through my faith.

 

And know what defines me are the choices I make

They will carry me through life’s challenges, whether they be good or with strife

What I achieve in my life is the reason for my being.

 

For they say life is a dash

And others will respond and attempt to influence; of that there is little doubt;

To have their say but be certain it does not have to be their way.

 

Create your own “carpe diem” and soar on the breeze and live your life.

 

Always remember stand out from the crowd

And be remembered because of who you truly are as that

Is the best of your life.

 

To always be remembered as the best version of who you are:

is to live through doing no harm to others.

 

Each day awakening with good in your heart;

a smile on your face and kindness in your deeds.

 

As such be remembered.

My brain is my hard drive don’t clutter it up!! A New Years Resolution.


As we move into the New Year I can’t but help thinking that we all get bogged down along the way with too much clutter.

Clutter that distracts confuses and keeps us from what we really wanted to do and when we reflect we remind ourselves of all those resolutions we set ourselves and didn’t achieve.

So lets think of how we manage our very own hard drive in 2015.

  1. Lets keep in front and center – that which makes a real difference in our lives.
  2. Erase the remarks that people say to hurt us and drain our battery.
  3. Let’s not over sweat the small stuff, keep a clear picture of what’s important.
  4. Remember WHO and WHAT s important in our lives and take care of those things.
  5. Don’t fill our hard drive with STUFF that drains our time and energy.
  6. Recharge our hard drive by connecting with those who give us energy.
  7. Constantly refresh our hard drive for superior thinking and performance.
  8. Throw in the trash that which becomes redundant and obsolete.
  9. Constantly upgrade our hard drive through what we learn and what we experience.
  10. Remember what is in our hard drive determines the who the what and the how of ME.

My 2015 Leadership prayer – The Leader in me!


The Leader in Me!

  • I do this not for my glory but for yours.
  • I don’t do this to get attention I come here to give it.
  • I don’t say one thing and then do another.
  • I have come here to give you my permission to use my authority, not to have authority over you.
  • I pray that I can always give of my best so that I can develop the best out of others.
  • I understand that I cannot do it on my own and must seek leaders who lead with heart.
  • I understand it is not the skills I have but my character that will leave my legacy.
  • I understand that the leadership code demands that I develop other leaders.
  • I acknowledge that my leadership journey will be my Dash in life.
  • I understand that my journey will not be easy and I will look to a higher inspiration to give me strength when I become weak.
  • Please give me the courage and the heart to always know that in serving others I become a real leader and remember that is what a leader does!

The leader in me grows because I nurtured the leader in you!

A scorecard for life and work!


scorecard

Many conversations start with a question!
How are you? How have you been? What have you been up to? And so on.

How did you feel when you were asked the questions? Did you feel like Oh Jeeze no!

We have all been there particularly when things have not been going so well. We have all had those moments…some moments lasting longer than others..

How do those moments change us? Have we become more than one person?
Different with different people…

I come across many people who tell me they are different people when they are at home than when they are at work.

Its not surprising to hear this I hear you say. Many of us show up differently given different circumstances.

The problem is who are we really?

The Questions of Faith and Fear

How do we show up each day?
What do we want to show and importantly what do we want to hide?
What do we want people to think of us?
What are we afraid of if we really show who we are?

Scorecards are life cards!

The thing is from the moment we were born we had a scorecard…how heavy, how long. What color eyes…… and so on.

It continued through infancy through to schools and sports, what were we good at what did we suck at!!

Remember first impressions and lasting impressions?

Life is a scorecard and yet when we get to work we are often different, we give lesser of ourselves and to our co-workers in many cases much less and yet…..

Work and Life
Productivity -Be the best you can be
Attendance -Be punctual when meeting friends
Quality -Be present and attentive
Safety -Do no harm to others – build relationships
Discipline -Fairness and honesty – Always

You see the thing is that each defines you and they cannot be separated:

Your Character
Your Curiosity
Your Courage

Are all ONE and the only thing you have to decide is whether faith of fear separates the REAL you from showing up.
