Connecting the Dots


Life is about first impressions - a voice, a sight, an aroma - and how we filter and ultimately link them. Often, we fail to see how the dots connect. Life is like that. Life, basically, is a first draft.

Over time, we acquire wisdom and insight. We become better people. We learn to find a measure of joy and peace of mind. But we also know that nothing is permanent. That life has a way of reducing us to nothing.

Next thing, we're groping frantically, looking for new dot to connect ...

Life is difficult that is for certain, as a professional with bi-polar, an author as well I find myself in a lonely place so very often. I agree that we must find a way to connect the dots and what your site does is just that, I am glad I found you. I have not found to many experts who are also professionals on such a depth of knowledge on this subject. I would like to talk to you further. You can reach me through my company Life Development Institute web site if you wish, my book is Embracing The Monster. Keep up the excellent work.

Hi,

Well another day and trying to keep up the pace of managing a professional image while struggling with a bit of uncertainty these days. I must admit I am on the best medication I have been on for years, but nothing is perfect. It is that balance that I have trouble keeping up with the hours I have to keep and worry about all of the business details that creates the additional stress in my life. By the time I get home I can't bring myself to taking care of the necessities of the balance that I use to do like exercise and diet, ugh, I am a bad example. I do prech it to others, but I don't practice it myself. Your site reminds me of what I need to do better, and I am going to try before my mind starts to slide again which with the Bipolar I that I have is likely without that balance. So thanks John for your hard work in reminding us that we have to do this work to make it all come together. Talk to you soon. Veronica
