I have been remiss in my writing. I have no excuse other than one that is fabulous: I have too many passions. I am and have been trying my gosh-darndest to devote equal love to each on a daily basis but I am, as I have always been, a work in progress.
I could spend each moment of my existence happily floating amongst the freedom of art. Creativity in motion. In fact, I am working quite harder than is visible to the human eye (other than my own two which, coincidentally cannot see all that well) to propel my visions into reality.
And the reality is this.
I am 100% passionate about the following things:
-Spending copiuous amounts of time inside my own mind
-Writing and writing and writing my daily thoughts and observations; I have so much I want to share and so little time to put pen to paper to share it
-Each hand-written journal of quotes that I create; especially those designed for a specific person
-Every ancillary project that I have in the works under The Winking Phoenix
-Books I want to publish – forever wishing for more chunks of time in my day to free-flow my mental file cabinets
-Being the most loving, listening, kind, giving, compassionate wife, mama and general human being I can be each day
And, I am 100% committed to the following things:
-Being the most loving, listening, kind, giving, compassionate wife, mama, and general human being I can be each day
-Being a better version of myself tomorrow than I was yesterday
-Offering the best of me to all I encounter, and absolutely to my husband and children on a daily basis
-Freeflowing my groove on a continuum that makes it all come together with some semblance of grace
So, with all that out of the way, I will enter into what propelled me from one creative endeavor to another: What is a mentor?
And you know I have a ton to both share and ponder. And it was witnessing a mentor-in-action tonight that really got me thinking about the concept of mentoring, and what a true mentor does for others – and I am really excited to talk about it.
Stay tuned for my next post which promises to explore the many facets of mentoring. I am tempted to start now (that passion thing is a killer)…but I am exhausted and it wouldn’t be as good as it could be for any of us…so after some much needed sleep I shall make my way back to these pages :-).
