Living Your Inner Mirror

[I wrote the beginnings of this post in early 2012, and dusted it off this evening, feeling inspired]

In March of this year, I went to a funeral. Steve Strunk was my cousin’s husband: a well-revered DC jazz pianist; also a music theorist, composer, performer, and professor of music for 39 years.

One of the most beautiful moments of the service was a description of Steve – and the phrase used to describe how he was in life was: He ‘lived his Inner Mirror’.

I took this phrase away, empowered to think about my own life and how my own inner mirror would reflect outwards towards the world.

Coaches Siraj Sirajuddin and Judy Rees had started coaching me  around the same time.  I soon realized coaching or some kind of change-agency was my ‘second’ career calling. This would be my way to ‘live my inner mirror’.  I would be helping others to reflect on their own work lives and improvements. With my coaching goals and aspirations as a change agent, I will be more fulfilled and happy in my life and life work.  I have many, many things I want to achieve within this umbrella goal. Acknowledging the power of following one’s calling has been the first step.  Thank you, Steve, for showing us how to live one’s life passion! Bless you!
