I’m Going

I’m going to miss the ringing of the village church bells
As I lie in silence in my new bed.

I’m going to miss the fresh village bread
As I sit at the table sipping my morning brew.

I’m going to miss the village chit chat
As I smile at unfamiliar faces of my new neighborhood.

Because I am going.
Going to blow away the heavy layer of stale dust;
Going to turn over that twenty-year-old leaf;
Going to move outwards and upwards and onwards.

There will be no more darting God’s curveballs;
No more blaming nor shaming nor guilting either.
Instead, Courage has won allyship over Conformity or Comfort:
It now sits snuggly like a crown on my head
As I stand tall and strong like a lighthouse to my children.

“The Dragon is the symbol of the spirit: the Leading Dragon is the one who finds their own path by standing in their power and choosing to lead from a space of Courage versus a space of Fear.” Inspired by Taoist teachings that helped her heal from severe burnout, Deborah is the founder of Leading Dragons, the mission of which is to bring the human spirit into organisations and bridge old systems with the new, by evolving and growing against the changes. Her core values are Growth, Integrity, and Connectedness: She honours these daily in her work as a strategic business partner, intuitive workshop facilitator, and co-designer for innovative ways. Deborah is known to bring her Dragon Magic into her workshops by “holding the space” for her corporate clients to tap into their resourcefulness and collective intelligence. Deborah accompanies leaders from SMEs and larger organisations, typically enabling them to turn around complicated and seemingly unresolvable situations: Dysfunctional teams become high-performing; employee engagement is enhanced; turnaround times are boosted and collective creativity is fuelled by newly-found energy. She is genuinely curious in others and accompanies leaders and their teams as they break through old thinking patterns and find creative solutions. Every piece of work she does is done in light of serving others as she finds joy in helping people grow and thrive organically, individually, and collectively. She works beyond frontiers, serving and thriving in multi-cultural and multi-dimensional organisations, from biotech companies in L.A. to International Organisations in Geneva, Switzerland. Deborah hosts bi-weekly Leading Dragons videocasts with Dragons and is about to launch the Leading Dragons Community. She is also an ambassador for Humans First and co-moderates weekly Clubhouse deep dives. Mum of Gabriel (13y) and Selma (10y), she practices self-care with a disciplined yoga routine as well as other activities such as running and - more recently - rowing. She is also a fervent adventurer and traveler and, when inspired, expresses her creativity through writing and painting.

  1. hi Larry,
    Thank you for this.
    When you are bathing in your own situation, and smiling through the storm, I guess it can be that great imagery can come to one’s mind and onto paper 🙂
    I am no poet, but this is what I am living right now, every day as I count down the days (9 to go) before I have gone.
    warmly.
    Deborah
