Season of Adversity 

Not everything goes our way and life can be pretty damn unfair.  We may imagine ourselves living as ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the Kardashians, the Obamas, or the Trumps.  We want the bling bling, the penthouse in the glass towers, the mansion overlooking the cliffs of Malibu, the Mercedes-Benz, and the perfect wife or husband to have the most beautiful children going to their exclusive private schools. 

You don’t have to give up on your hopes and dreams but you’ve got to GOYA and take the necessary action needed to achieve.  In order to get your treasure you must get on your hands and knees covered in mud as you search the ground you are on.  You must endure the storm before the sun shines on your destiny.  

Season of Being

You must be fully engaged in the present in order to become the future self you see in the mirror.  That means the past you see in the fractured glass is your old paradigm and your new mindset should reflect that.  

Your choice is to face the fear and kill the lion or to let the lion of your past actions or inactions, missed opportunities, or negative energy devour you.  

Season of Change 

We all must endure seasons that are difficult and harsh.  We may have seasons of drought before our harvest of prosperity. 

Season of Discovery 

We may have to walk cautiously through the valley alone until we reach our destination.  

We may meet fellow life travelers along the way; some will be with us for a short spell while others will stay close to our hearts for a lifetime and beyond.  The willingness to go all in and go the distance. 

Season of Expectancy 

That one person who completes your story and helps write your book may just be one chapter away.  

All you need to do is open your heart and let the Universe inspire that page of pleasure and prose in front of you. 

With pen in hand let’s “begin…

with the end in mind.”

As a proud graduate of California State University, Chico with an earned BA degree in International Relations, Master of Arts degree in Public Policy, and a past study abroad participant at the University of Tuebingen, education has always been up front and center in both our family and my professional career. My blogging project is an eclectic work in progress and intended to increase global awareness through selections and stories of my studies and travels. As future global citizens we can seek first to understand one another through word pictures and engage our collective creative intellects to change our community; one blog at a time.
