I have long denied my own inner wisdom when it comes to the people around me. I suspect it is related to some of the events in my early life where my boundaries were severely crossed. Whatever the reason, I spent many years attracting people into my life who crossed my boundaries, not so much physically, but mentally, spiritually and psychically.
I was reading through items on Craigslist last night and ran into a painting for sale by Dyrk Godby. That is a fairly unique name and I had to look it up because I went to high school with a Dyrk Godby. Turns out, it was the same guy. I remember him as a great boxer and knew that he had won a middleweight boxing championship. As I read about him, I learned of all the amazing things he has done in his life. He's been a champion rodeo man, a singer and songwriter and a talented painter.
We have recently started building an aquaponics system. There is nothing like a new project to start the mental juices flowing. We're learning about water quality, raising fish, maintaining nutrient levels for plants... you name it, the list goes on. Fortunately, we found a great resource in the aquaponics forum at Backyard Aquaponics. The people there are great at providing whatever knowledge they have.
I quit a job today. It wasn't your ordinary job. I actually worked for two different companies, one each owned by a father and son. One company I get paid for and the other is a startup. I finally reached the point I couldn't do it anymore. During the last year, I've compromised my values and given until I have nothing left to give. So, this morning, I quit.

My life has been filled with so many changes lately. Some days I am totally in awe that I have come this far and that I have so much. I am growing up and finding who I am, this has been a long time coming.
