When you choose to initiate, you’ve essentially chosen to be the spark that puts things in motion.

You’ve chosen to take some ownership,

To assume responsibility for your life.

You’ve chosen to move forward into a situation, rather than waiting for it to come to you.

Initiative is not something that’s granted to you, it’s something you must take.

You claim it.

Taking that step forward, setting the standard and inviting the world to follow.

The alternative is indifference.

It’s hesitation and fear,

Avoidance and ambiguity.

What taking the initiative does is turn uncertainty into certainty

And chaos into order.

It provides a sense of direction, clarity and resolution

It turns out of control, into a sense of under control

It takes something that’s out of your hands; and puts it back in your hands.

It takes a set of ideas and wills them into existence

It’s creativity, will and courage converging to make things happen.

The alternative, well the alternative is you just sit around and wait,

Just let life just happen to you.

And that may feel safe and secure, until one day you realize it’s not.

    It’s pointless, because history will always be confined to history. Instead it may be time to look yourself in the mirror, at the risk of not liking what you see. Because getting it right, means being honest with yourself. It comes with the brutality of having to confront your own demons, And being able and willing to take the hits. So take your second chance. Don’t look back in anger, maintain the hope And be determined to do things a little different.

    There’s a great symphony in sadnessA million things conspiring beautifully together to set a sombre tone. It’s a tragedy, no doubt. Irrational at times, often transcending words or reason.But incomprehensible in...
  • Communication is not a one way street
    Communication is not a one way street. It’s not about talking, it’s about listening. It’s not about reacting, it’s about responding. It’s not about knowing, It’s about understanding. It’s not about judgement or pretense It’s about connection.
  • Leaving it all behind
    Some things are certainly worth holding onto -  Others we just hold onto because we are too afraid to say goodbye.  Not because we can’t But because doing so means facing our own mortality
