The Journey

Today I am starting; starting to talk, and it`s on paper now. I have given years of thought on this and now I will start with a written synapse of feelings. Uh oh, there`s the word everybody fears; “feelings“. Instant freeze!

We all have the same access to a bank of emotions connected to the vast associations involved within one word. When mentioned, immediate floodgates of memories and experiences alter our perception of the NOW. Perception: The powerful source of how we live and interact within our various domains. Domains that vary across everyone`s path. No two paths are alike and each is a different experience interconnected within the degrees of separation that bring us together or pull us apart!

What is it within each and every one of us that makes us an individual piece of the intricate puzzle of life? Why are tears flowing for both happiness and sadness? Why does energy flow in both anger and love? What is it that makes the “fight or flight“ response an individual interpretation of how to react?

The answer lies within every choice we make. In the end, the answers are available. The interesting part though is that it cannot be shared. It`s the secret of the grave and thus remains a secret never to be revealed. This is the meaning of life. To live in search of the secret. Everyone has the same quest within their individual journey. Every perception of this secret makes life an interesting quest. It`s not the type of journey you take, but how well you perceive this journey.

Make the best damn ride you can! You only get one shot!

I am a deep thinker, lover of thoughts, and prolific writer sharing my words. In sharing, I am caring. I am a member of the human race with an appetite to motivate, inspire, empower, and provoke thinking. I am compelled to a vision that we are all here for a reason, life is like a deck of cards... “My cards. My deal. Life is learning the game!” #opism What is OPISM? I have come up with this term as my nickname is Op and they are my own quotes representing a moral doctrine belief system. Thus...Op+ism=Opism. #opism. My professional experience is disbursed across industries from financial services and sales to that of personal and emergency care. As one who has trained and coached, mentored, and taught; it has become a passion within to witness and feel joy in the achievement and success of others that I have been associated with. I am a lifelong learner and have created and facilitated various training materials. It is through such experience that I discovered the power of positive feedback in both professional and personal manners. I am self-disciplined, accountable, determined, humble, loyal, and adaptive; but above all, I value my integrity! I am a decent human being. It is with my greatest pleasure to share with others the power of positive words.

  1. Every human relationship, even the most complex, is based on feelings that are often invisible to the outside world, but must be the solid foundation of the emotional ground to guide everyday actions and behaviors.
    Of course, in order to get in touch with one’s deepest feelings, a high emotional involvement is necessary, capable of leading to full knowledge of the person’s personality and inner psychological dimension and promoting self-awareness. Knowing yourself means opening up to the emotions and affective dynamics that support them, and then letting them go by focusing on some authentic feelings to be placed at the basis of every daily action.
    Feelings are the roots of our way of being and, in the course of life, they show us the paths to follow and the goals to reach, first of all the love that is capable of bringing the person to the profound truth and desire, which is the driving force of the individual.
