I spoke at length with a friend today who shares some common struggles with me. However, it was interesting to listen to how the ROOTS of his issues were based in some totally different places than mine had been. While I was previously a passive, afraid-to-make-a-mistake husband and leader, my friend talked about how he had been a controlling, directive, overbearing leader. The thing we shared was that our shortcomings and struggles had threatened our marriages. I didn't get on a path to doing things right in time to save mine. He did. "So what?" you ask?

It’s really amazing to sit in an airport for a while. There’s the hustle, the bustle, the sounds, etc. But the more you watch, the more you see life passing by you. People of all shapes, sizes, ethnicities, languages, and especially all kinds of paces being struck. Some are leisurely walking along, taking things in. Some are into a conversation with another person as they walk. And some, unfortunately for them, are moving at an accelerated pace with a look of, “Will I make it?” on their face.

So, I've written many times about the discoveries my journey has brought me. Things like a realization that I am loved, a commitment to Truth above all else, a commitment to being real (with myself and others), etc. Now that journey brings me to a point of need in my life. I need to change some things.
