4 comments on “Making a Paradigm Shift

  1. Are you the tall, male, slightly older version of me? Because apparently you know exactly how my life is and you deal with it way better than I do. For reals dude, it blows me away how much you seem to “get it”. By “it” I mean the things I think and feel but never quite find the motivation to say out loud. It is so comforting to know that I’m not the only one.

  2. Hey, Kent, lots of “food for thought” in this post. I too just watched the marathon of conference. I get renewal as always while watching then seem to slip back into the humdrum of living. I think because of my life right now, your shared thoughts are timely for me. I am feeling overwhelmed with sadness for things beyond my control…but I can control how I react to being acted upon. Empathy is good to a point until it shapes all your daily thoughts and you no longer live your own life. Thanks for putting some things into perspective for me, it clicked.. You are right about yourself…feelings of needing to move forward faster because of “age” or everyone else you know is already living your dream is no reason to stop in the middle of pursuing that dream.

  3. Kentstir—I love how a paradigm shift was explained to me once….It is like being on top of a building and seeing the view from one point and then by simply moving to another side you can have a completely different view of things!!!! I do lots of “self talk”…that is what I call it —so that I can keep an optimistic attitude when my life is not the easiest:) I read this quote last week and knew I was to send it to you….”Ideals are like stars; you will not succeed in touching them with your hands. But like the seafaring man on the desert of waters, you choose them as your guides, and following them you will reach your destiny.” …Carl Schurz I Love You So!!!!
