Today I’m beginning my journey of writing and sharing my thoughts, insights and dreams on “Living and Dying”.

Eight months ago I spent an intense weekend in Los Angeles with some amazing individuals dedicated to living a more purpose driven life. As we sat together in a space of love and acceptance we listened to the stories of our lives, the stories of do and can’t. While it was everyone’s intention to live a “I can do it” life all of us found we most often found ourselves living in the “I can’t” space. Collectively we all committed to changing the way we went about our daily lives with the intention of creating new strategies, habits and ways of living our lives. While I have not missed one day of my one hour meditation (pretty impressive, I must say), I have not done much more. All of my house guests in our group left Los Angeles dedicated to daily meditation and producing 100 days of videos documenting their experiences. In review of their efforts I am continually amazed by their growth and commitment to its value. I on the other hand, used publishing my new book as my new life strategy, because the video thing didn’t quite feel right to me. With all the best intentions of marketing and selling my book I left Los Angeles to begin my new purpose driven life. The purpose of becoming a writer, speaker, educator, etc. or so I thought. Very soon I found myself in turmoil with the publisher over printing issues and errors. I had issues with the cover design and perseverated for weeks over a final copy. I created months of angst and struggle kicking and screaming through the publishing process. Looking back, I struggled with committing to changing my habits, and creating new ways of living my life (leaping). So, I sat there every morning meditating and then went about doing the same old thing, nothing.
Today I begin to share my blog for at least 100 days about my experience with a purpose driven life. I call it “living and dying” because I see living as moving forward and embracing change and dying as just sitting here. Today, not wanting to die, I begin my journey. Wish me luck and feel free to join me and consider finding your own voice to share in our world. I welcome comments and discussion and I will do the best I can to participate.
