Imagine Your Obituary

Imagine your obituary. What will it read?

I came across Fodey -a site that generates a small newspaper image. I used Fodey to create a fictitious obituary for Complacent Indifference. This is a bit of creative license taken from a variety of print articles that have appeared over the years about Somebody Else and Nobody. These articles are often used in non profit organizations to motivate people to volunteer. These stories often go under the title That's Not My Job and Who's Job Is It? and have the author "unknown".

What does all this have to do with transitioning your life? You can get off the sofa, do something, start something, read something, or try something and transition the "nobody" in you to "somebody really special".

Going Forward

Researching and learning new things takes time. Often it is two steps forward and one step back. We learn in little bits and pieces.

Being willing to learn is the first step. Being willing to fail is also an important piece of learning new things.
Remember a journey of a thousand miles begins with just one step.

What one step can you take to begin your new journey?

Finding brillance in a dull day

Today it rained. It really rained. And then it poured. And like a true Californian I say, "we really needed the rain."

One of the nicest things was the occasional "sun breaks" we had that glimmered down from the sky. Making a winter rainy gray day, special.

Looking and seeing something outside the ordinary is what makes our daily life enjoyable. Look for the little things. They add up.

I hope you see something special each day.
