GO!

In Content Meant 2021, I wrote “We need be cautious in confusing what we actually study and deliver on from how we deliver it. We need to distinguish between the body of knowledge we have deep interest and expertise in, and how we deliver on same. Content and delivery are both important, but not the same. When both are clear and strong, we have the capacity for what I affectionately call content meant. And Contentment.” There is a sense or order to that.

My content is Character Leadership and Unity Building (I call it the CLUB lol).

I deliver on them through speaking, teaching, singing, dancing, cartooning and more.

That said, I also deliver in how I try my best to live. Last night was a rough night with Panda and her health. Before her episode, I had posted this…

This little one got my back and I have hers. She has my heart too. 🙂

And I acted upon that truth last night. My adopted Code applied.

See below.

These words, in deeds, mattered.

Difficult times demand much of us, and the Grace to bring it.

And a sense of order for us.

Grace is a Trust powerfully, humbly placed.

Orderliness is about creating our own necessary “backbone” to life and living it.

Reflect on these two. How do they apply for you?

Grace and Orderliness; that’s a GO!

Peace, passion and prosperity…

Content Meant 2021

In A Youthful Reminder, I was inspired by Penelope. Check it out. But inspired must lead to action… to be truly inspired. And, I am.

Thanks again Penelope. As my new website is developed and delivered for my next birthday, February 20, 2021, I realize and recognize some of that inspiration.

This morning, I posted on Facebook…

  • I find it interesting what occurs in our minds in the waking hours. For me, anyway.This morning, the thought popped in that one month from now, the needle moves to 61.I don’t know what that means to anyone else.For me, it means 61 years of living… lessons, love, laughter and more.For me, it means 61 years of mistakes and successes… of ups and downs. For me, it means 61 years of both fear and courage.For me, it means 61 years of life and work and experience.For me, it means that whatever Wisdom and even expertise I have it is because of my readiness to learn. Also for me, it means, whatever life has in store, I still bring my lessons, hopes and dreams and love.Yeah, I do not know what 61 means.You may have your own understanding. But for me, my intent is more singing, dancing, teaching, learning, cartooning, writing, creating and loving.My days with Panda now remind me of the ups and downs, ins and outs… and how they are part of life. In one month, the needle moves.And I move now, forward.

Then, again this morning, in response to a colleague, I indicated that my business model and concept for the work I do is changing… fundamentally. I no longer see myself as a “speaker”. I have a purpose, passion and expertise and I deliver in myriad ways on that… speaking is but one way. Singing, dancing, cartooning, writing, vlogging, blogging, acting and creating are others. They are delivery platforms.

We need be cautious in confusing what we actually study and deliver on from how we deliver it. We need to distinguish between the body of knowledge we have deep interest and expertise in, and how we deliver on same. Content and delivery are both important, but not the same. When both are clear and strong, we have the capacity what I affectionately call content meant. And Contentment.

Therein I find my Optimism primed. I am increasingly finding mine.

Find yours.

And on this Inauguration Day, may we each increasingly find ours.

Peace, passion and prosperity…

A Youthful Reminder

In Noble Rising, I noted “The world needs us, our nobly created us… each of us. Character is called for in these times and moving forward. It is called for at home, school, work, business and community.”

This weekend, I had the opportunity to chat with Penelope on the fun she is having, doing her own noble service. I was inspired. Check it out. Children, youth and kids are not the future; they are the present forging the future. Thanks Penelope for reminding me. Your message, Enthusiasm, Joyfulness and Service engage me as I walk my own road with Panda and her health, teaching and serving. I needed that.

Peace, passion and prosperity…

Noble Rising

In Nothing to Report?, I said “… things are happening, things are changing. I am in self reflection.”

I was, and am.

It is 2021, and the days of uncertainty continue. Personally, I deeply hold that we are in historic times and that we will make it.

With work, and character.

And over these days, and amidst memorizing these words of Baha’u’llah that I have chosen to adopt as my own “code” for which to strive life long, , I am also reminded of these words deeply held sacred and believed.

  • “Noble have I created thee, yet thou hast abased thyself. Rise then unto that for which thou wast created.”

Exchange your name for thee and thou and thyself. Let that sink in. Understand what it says about your noble spirit.

There are 44 days until my next birthday, and the gift I choose to give myself is to have these words sink in to my very bones, cells and atoms. Rise then, in the practice of Nobility.

The world needs us, our nobly created us… each of us. Character is called for in these times and moving forward. It is called for at home, school, work, business and community. It is called for in order for us to move forward together, stronger. What does your noble spirit look like, in practice and in action? Imagine that countenance and gate. I am.

I am imagining what that more assured and humble step looks like, with the intention of living and working it. I am imagining it at home, school, work, business and community. The words above are being transformed into a personal vision of the man I chose to be.

How about you?

Come on up for the rising.

Peace, passion and prosperity…
