Happy as A Camel on Hump Day

Last Update: March 13, 2019

Today at work a facilitator called in sick today (no I'm not happpy about that). I hope that person feels better and makes it back soon.

I was having lunch with some old co-workers in the old building I use to work at and my old boss came in asking for a volunteer to stay and do the night group. I have not done a group in a little over a month and have not done a night group in well over 6-months.

I know you don't give a crap about any of that but it leads up to why I'm happy.

The topic of the group was "Motivation" and I've been on a roll of that lately thanks to WA.

When I do groups I'm pretty freaking passionate about all the subjects I do and tonight was no different.

Since I cannot promote WA in classes I did get these individuals thinking about there futures and what they are going to do for the rest of their lives.

I talked about them thinking back to a time when things had been simpler for them and what it was they had been or might be learning to be passionate about "what do you LOVE" and I explained to them in so many words that it can still be accomplished if they put their minds to it.

I talked about letting go of the FEAR's they may have and getting out of their Comfort Zones.

I was throwing tennis balls back and forth as I walked up and down the room and throwing my markers at them to go up and write what they want to achieve in life, we got so into it the group ended up going half hour over the end time as most my groups did in the past.

I found my answer to my dilema at the same time and that's to continue my current job until my higher power say's otherwise.

It sounds like you had some fun with this topic and that is an awesome thing because you got the passion for just about anything.

I hope that this group got some passion for something. And it probably gave you some ideas as well for topics too. That's what it sounds like to me and that is great.

I'm always getting ideas from these men when I finally start to make some cash and send my mom & dad on the trip my mom wants next thing will be donating 2% of whatever I earn back to my (hopefully former employer) to say thank you every year. Non-profits need all the money they can get.

Great post Jason. I'm glad you came to a decision. I was once one of those person's who lived a life fearing this and that. People kept telling me I would fail at anything I would start. Total rubbish. We only fail if we do not try. Good on you for being inspirational. Wish I had some one like you around when I was younger and needed a good kick up the bum :)

We all need a kick in the bum every once in a while.
