Last week, Beth asked us what inspires us. For me, without a doubt, the answer is relationships.
Our relations with others: how we see others, how we treat them, how we act because of them…
Even our relationship with ourselves: identity, culture, spirituality.
Love, or hate.
I am fascinated by all these things. In my own life, I seek to resolve problems between people and even within themselves. I often find myself in that kind of role and I love it. Part teacher, part confidante, it gives me a sense of meaning in my life. When I’m not counseling others, I search for and rediscover my ever-changing self. When I am full of something to say, I put it into words, into food, and into comfort.
Some might call it naval-gazing and maybe it is, but I find the better rooted I am in myself, the better suited I am to help others. Therein lies the joy.
I have a little system for all of this right now, but that system is about to go into shock, for on Monday we move to Thailand. The next time I participate in You Capture, it will be from the other side of the world.See you all on the other side.
