Pinoy – Filipino American – arrived from Philippines landed in San Diego as a small child with my older sister and Mom. Taught the English language from a patient first grade Teacher, Mrs. White, my first mentor and became an American Navy brat.
A lifestyle that lead to 11 other schools before graduating high school. I see now that was not normal.. Innate adaptability became a trait that drove the demands of several life challenging careers. After post college I began a military career.
After a several wartime related deployments, fell in love and married an Indiana native who I met through writing letters; we married in a small town in Denmark. A highly successful Military career became a newfound personal growth arena for our new family, such great times we still hold dear.
Post military retirement created an identity crisis. Never realized how high a pedestal I was placed in responsibility and respect till I had my first interview. I had to start all over..
Why the personal history rant? Found that we become what we are constantly exposed to in life. Having many vantage points enriches a wide array of possibilities beyond what is normally expected. You know, get a good education to land a good JOB, (Just Over Broke), stay there and retire after 30 years with hopefully all your obligations paid then quietly fade away in your later years.
You ever wonder why Lemmings, Sheep, and other consumable cattle walk to their death not knowing until its too late? Thank goodness we can be awaken before its too late. This is what I am working on, to awaken the Giant within to truly experience life on our own terms. Follow me and my team on a journey of enrichment!
