Hope and Saving Lives

No, I’m not interested in politics. I have zero interest. I have interest in hope and people.


I don’t listen to enough Jay-Z but I can appreciate these words for what they are right here. I do appreciate hope in most things. What is there if we don’t envision a better future for ourselves and our children and those to come. The root of my drive resides in hope (and faith and love). There was a time I lost hope but it wasn’t until I surrendered that things began to work in my favor. There’s a lot worth fighting for but there’s times when surrendering wins the battle. Those times are the times that we’ve grasped too tightly to the wheel, to our need for control. I took a course the other day called Stop the Bleed, and while we were practicing on the dummies we learned that we get tired very quickly while performing these life saving actions. That we have to delegate those around us to help us save lives. This isn’t about delegation though, it’s about being prepared to let those around you step in when it’s time, so that you can work together much longer than you would if you were alone. Learning to let go is scary but it truly can save lives (and I’m not just talking about stop the bleed here).

Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily on improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
