Give Grace

Tom Matson wrote in his book, “UNFROZEN: A Father’s Reflections on a Brain Tumor Journey:” Grace: a word and associated actions I’ve never been able to comprehend. I don’t think our minds can fully grasp grace. I know many people could define grace differently, but for me, I see it as receiving love when we don’tContinue reading “Give Grace”

I Do It For The Roses

“While strolling through the fields of time, there’s many things to see; But nature is the greatest sight, that there could ever be. The greatest of them all to me is how the world was formed; And why the roses have to live each day among the thorns.” Image provided by bitrebels.com My work placesContinue reading “I Do It For The Roses”

Grace

I’ve commented a few times recently via social media how amazing critical colleagues are. These are people who will challenge you, call you out, help you grow and learn in very authentic ways. One such college, who works in Pennsylvania and co-facilitates with me at various leadership conferences across the country, engaged me in great reflectionContinue reading “Grace”

Then I Looked Around

I am thankful for 2014. There were times in 2013 that I asked that oh so selfish question…you know the one. The one that assumes that you can’t have problems, and that bad things aren’t supposed to happen to you. I asked…Why did my aunt have to die? Why did my fraternity brother, and twoContinue reading “Then I Looked Around”

Gratitude

It has been months since I posted last, and that’s unfortunate. My life has taken many turns since September or so of 2012. Without doing a bunch of catching up, I’d rather just pick back up with creating content through sharing my insights and ah-has. Sharing is the least I can do. This post isContinue reading “Gratitude”

You wanna know what love is?

This post is a bit selfish – it’s not really for anyone but me and my amazing partner, Hannah Katharine Anthony. But if leading by example is good, then loving by example must be even better. Today is our fourth anniversary. Some say there is nothing significant about four years, it’s just another year goneContinue reading “You wanna know what love is?”

Top Down Bigotry and Ignorance – #overit

David Williams assails Steve Beshear over participation in Hindu prayer ceremony | The Courier-Journal | courier-journal.com. I don’t pretend to know everything about everything…well I kinda do, but I am willing to talk about why I believe what I believe. And I’m not so intellectually arrogant as to think that everything I say or thinkContinue reading “Top Down Bigotry and Ignorance – #overit”

A Fool in Love

For those who know me well, you know I absolutely love old music, particularly old gospel and Motown. In fact I like most music so long as the lyrics tell a story. So ballads, despite the genre, are my favorite. I find amazing lessons in the most unassuming spaces, and the music industry provides someContinue reading “A Fool in Love”
