Memories2Awareness is about learning to treasure your life’s journey in ways that bring inspiration to yourself and to others. I have started writing my memoir numerous times and always get sidetracked by another person’s request for assistance with things that are near and dear to them and their well-being. This is a good thing but over the years, I am feeling more out of spiritual balance maintaining that level of focus on service and begin challenging my own self about – “What do I really feel passionate about?” In response to my question, I want to create and participate in learning communities. I retired 2014 and continue pressing my way out of the revolving approach to life that provided incentives for me to do my work in a corporate setting or as a nonprofit leader or in the profession of an ordained clergy. I look forward to using reflective inquiry as an evolving light that brings peace to the places where I have been and wonderful challenges that fuel the future places where I am going (http://www.cordonline.net/mntutorial2/module_4/Reading%204-3%20cognitive%20presence.pdf).
