A friend recently sent me a TEDx Talk by Simon Sinek about How Leaders Inspire Action. I started listening to Simon Sinek’s book Start with Why on Audible to get a more in depth appreciation for finding my why. I don’t get frustrated sitting with my thoughts and feelings very often, but for some reason this is causing irritation that I’m going to attempt to work through in this post, so bare with me as we go through this.
While I explore my professional why, I think I should refocus on my why for continuing to do this blog. I’m writing this blog because I have an emense appreciation for the future of this planet. The people, the environment, the regional to global communities, all of it. Some live more primitively than others, but we’re all alive at this very moment. We have an obligation to each other to do our best to ensure we thrive to see another day. I write this blog because I want to feel apart of something, I want you to feel apart of something. I share my experiences and the impacts they have on the days ahead because every experience is an opportunity to gain a pinch of wisdom.
Inspiration whether internal or external drives me to continue to write. I’m optimistic that this struggle to find my why will only make my why that much stronger. The longer I sit here the more it becomes clear that my why is about building a strong community. Physically, emotionally, mentally. Just stronger, flexable, adaptable, resilient. We cannot do this alone, we need each other. That’s why I write this blog! Because I’m here, being vulnerable, open, bare.
Thank you Simon Sinek for inspiring this blog today!
