I believe that experiences through life's challenges makes us much better people but only if we can couple these challenges to solutions and not stay mired in past errors, mistakes or behaviors.
Over the years, I have had many and varied experiences in life like a lot of people I'm sure. I have moved around from city to city to follow my career path and some of these moves took me far from my family.
During these moves away from my home, I have had to establish mechanisms that would satisfy my need to be part of a community. To accomplish this, I became very out going learning to fit into different groups, nationalities and cultures. From all of these various types of communities, I learned what it was like to be different, to be challenged in a new country, to need help to overcome issues that I never had to experience.
One mechanism that I used to help set the tone, for example, when I moved into a leadership role was the daily posting of motivational quotes, stories or poems. I would often use these sources in my written communication as well usually ending my letters or memos with an inspirational message of one kind or another.
All of these lead me to establish a site dedicated, for the most part, to poems - poems that had real meaning in life. Individuals could use these poems as their own personal thought provoking reading, or used to share with others whether that was in a speech, a seminar or training session, or to share with school groups or social meetings.
This site is an expression of using my experiences as a way to involve others in another aspect of sharing, helping and motivating - we all can use a source for inspiring words - I hope you find the site inspiring.
