Keeping Busy

I’m the first to admit that I’m no angel. However, I’m also the first to admit that forgiveness of others is one of the most important things that we can do. I have wrestled with some pretty weighty demons in my life. I’ve hit rock bottom on more than one occasion because event though I’m a learner by nature, sometimes I don’t like the lesson being taught.

However when people who you respect for their wisdom and kindness give you advice and the advice is always the same, it behooves you to take it in and meditate on it. I’ve been blessed over the last 2 months with some sage and wise counsel and really feel it is starting to sink in. One of the best things in the world is to have children. Another of the best things is to have children that are as amazing as mine are. They are smart, witty and kind. They have souls that are still in touch with God on a number of levels. They love deeply and without reservation. Truly, I’e been blessed. I’ve often lost sight of that. My goal is to keep that foremost in my mind and heart as I continue to rebuild and reinvent myself.

This last year has given me a number of chances to restart anew and I don’t intend to squander another one. Forward we go. I intend to keep myself busy with positive and life affirming activities. A little bit of good every day soon adds up to a lot of positive change.

 

New Beginnings

While I’ve had this space for many years, I’ve been negligent in keeping up with it due to various projects and other outside issues. However, going through a divorce has freed up some time for me after work.

I intend to update much more frequently and as I move into new areas, share what I’m learning and doing. Right now I’m working with some lean startup veterans on creating some great resources to give back to the community. In addition my day job I’m taking on the role of systems administrator for a high end label company (more on that later).

Best,
Derek
