I finished reading an article on inspiration and motivation written by a guy named Chris Guillebeau at The Art of Non-Conformity.
A chord was struck.
Injections of inspiration and motivation help propel me forward. I enjoy writing Transition Therapy, but I realize that the discussion may not be palatable for mainstream blog enthusiasts. So I don’t get a whole lot of encouraging feedback. And that’s okay because I believe that writing about the uncomfortable topic of change is part of my life’s work. I will do it regardless.
Last week, though, a friend expressed thanks to me for talking with her about some recent challenges she has faced. I want to be a sounding board for people, someone who can listen without judgement and provide the sense of a camaraderie that feels so comforting when changes abound. And to the extent that she has felt supported, I am flattered by her appreciation.
Hopefully, knowing that I have helped one will keep me motivated until I help another.
