Welcome to my blog! I am glad you have found your way here!
I am writing this blog because I want to help people see the opportunity that is sometimes buried deep within adversity. Life got extremely hard for me the day a Chevy Cavalier pulled out in front of my wife and I as we rode our Honda 750 down the highway on a sunny Spring day in April of 2011. The crash radically altered my life and launched me onto a long journey of recovery that has been both a test and a time of growth and learning.
One word I thought of to describe this journey was “OpporVersity” which I define as: “the marriage between opportunity and adversity.” Instead of trying to get out of my adversity, I’ve been learning to dance with it and see what shows up which explains the words that describe this blog as “hoping for the best and dancing with the rest.” In other words, when you have hope and can find a way to dance with hard circumstances, you can live!
As I write, I welcome your involvement in the conversation. Topics will be practical and relevant for anyone going through challenging circumstances either now, in the past or in your future (and they will come!). I want to give you fresh ways to look at life that will encourage and challenge you to grow deeper as you face a variety of challenges.
I invite your comments, questions and insights into the topics I’ll write about. Please sign up to receive my blog posts as an email or a RSS feed so you can stay current on these ideas.
This is a work in process. I’ll be learning as I go both about the topic at hand as well as what makes a blog a successful one. Thanks for learning with me.
