Ever felt that nudge when you know something is off. That nudge that just won’t go away. We ignore it. Distract it. Do everything we can to procrastinate or avoid that funny feeling that we get. The feeling that only you can identify.
Yes we have all been there. It might be that change in our career, relationship, finances and more. Knowing when it’s time to make that move–to do something different. It’s important to do it and not wait until your circumstances get drastic and the change is forced upon you as can happen when we are forced out of a job.

Sometimes in life you have to just make the move. I jumped 14,000 ft from a skydive high above the sea. The open air, sea, and clouds were all I could perceive. No easy feat. Like a Rube garbed in Costume, I was as scared as ever. But, with a trained guide affixed to my back and the wonders of a reliable parachute, I did it! (yikes)!
Today, I encourage you to step out and do whatever you want to do. Simply plan it, and with wisdom…do it even when you’re afraid.
Here’s a synopsis of my journey through the eyes of my youngest.
Go, make yours happen!
What we don’t see….CAN hurt. Violence, anger, strife, held beneath the surface can cause harm. Such harm often leads to hurt, fear, pain that maim, and even ultimate death.
Look around. This has been on the rise. Happening often with the common comment “quiet person causes no harm”.
Silent River Runs Deep.
Silent River Runs Deep… is an old fable that seems to be applicable these days.
Woke up to the news that a father shot his 2 kids then turned the gun on himself. The feedback …”good parent, no signs of child abuse, always good father”. And there are many many more stories like this.
What’s going on?… is the common question.
Time for society to pull together. To work together within our communities to help. Signs. There are always signs. If only we see, if only our eyes are open. We’re now a society with heads down. Heads down in our phone. Heads down in virtuality, when the real world holds us as victims.
It’s time to raise our heads up. Open our eyes. Take a look at our neighbors, coworkers, friends, families; and at times our foes; our haters, our enemies. Let’s look; recognize the signals being sent. All around us there are signs.
Let’s not wait until it’s ….too late.
To lead, to Wade…Darkness. Life’s unexpected changes often knock us off our feet. Business fail. Sudden job loss, relationship spiral, sickness, accidents, natural disasters, tragic losses. These changes knock us off our feet causing darkness in our souls, our lives, our all. We look around and all we see is gloom and doom.
Questions abound often going unanswered. Why? Why didn’t we listen? Why weren’t we forewarned? …Then how. How could this happen? How could we have not seen, or heard? How can they not care?
Enter the example of the ‘sudden’ departure of Basketball’s Icon Dwayne Wade from the Miami Heat . The why’s, the how’s, and the blames reign. Answers provide little comfort as he walks behind the heels of those gone before.
That’s how it is with change. It throws us off balance and causes alarm, cries, and sighs. We want things back the way they were!
But often there are warning signs.
So today activate your senses. Keep your eyes wide open…see. Keep your ears attuned. Look around. Listen. Often the signs are very evident if only we are in tune.
Stay healthy. Stay alert. Stay focused. As darkness draws nigh, we always see the sun setting.
