WHAT I’VE LEARNED ABOUT EMBRACING MY NATURAL GIFTS

2019-09-14T20:54:01-04:00

Photo by Kyle Smith on Unsplash By Gail Barker, B.A., C.P.C.C. In the world of self-development, there is often a lot of talk about knowing and embracing your gifts. Those natural abilities and talents that you bring to the world? They are a source of power, strength, and identity. They are what make you, YOU. I’ve learned over the years, however, that as much as these unique qualities may be appreciated by others, I myself may be blind to them. It’s as though their very “natural-ness” renders them invisible to me, the bearer of the gifts.   Take for example my ability [...]

CRAFT CRAWLING IN A2

2019-09-14T20:42:29-04:00

Photo by Liz Crowe By Liz Crowe During my time as an ex-pat trailing spouse and mom of three young children in Istanbul, life could get interesting. The stark differences between being an ex-pat in Japan and in Turkey would make for a long list, both positives and negatives. But our landing (ex-pat speak for the first two weeks you live in your new country) was…a rough one. It’s a long-ish story and one I won’t get into as we must jump right to our booze-related one. I bring it up though because it allows me to do this super cool [...]

THE UNINHIBITED NATURAL SELF

2019-09-21T09:13:09-04:00

The perfect ripeness of a tomato, telling us it’s time to be picked. The sudden emergence of an opening sentence for a piece of writing, or an idea just waiting to be breathed life into, that appears in your path like a feather. All miraculous, whole. We emerge into the world utterly unselfconscious about our desires, our sudden urges for immediate relief. Ask any baby, and it will tell you soon [...]

RETURNING TO NATURE…

2019-09-14T20:35:46-04:00

Photo by Barron Roth on Unsplash By Morella Devost It sounded like a freight train rolling above my head. I never heard anything like it before. The roar of the windstorm swaying the forest trees surrounding my tent made me feel minuscule and out of place. As I longed for my bed, I was saddened to be one of the many humans whose lifestyle is so completely divorced from nature that we don’t even know how to live in it.  That stormy night was the third in my five-day, five-night vision quest. I was alone, fasting, meditating, and simply sitting and [...]

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

2019-09-21T10:15:38-04:00

Dear Readers, If you are like most folks, when you hear the words “longevity in business” you likely think about fifteen, twenty, or maybe even fifty years in business.  Those numbers are to be applauded. As many of us know, owning and running a business is not for the faint of heart. It is for the adventurer, the trail blazer, and the brave. Perhaps you count yourself as all of the above and more.  While we are all thinking about what we could each do in fifty years of business, I ask you to take that thought a step further and ask yourself, [...]
