Condolences to All … Encouragement Too

To those harmed and killed by people with low “Respect Levels,” the latest being the victims of a shooter in Las Vegas, my condolences for your pain and loss.

Please know this … Connecting The Dots With The Respect Principle … was inspired by yours and other people’s pain, loss, and all the dark things people think and do to harm themselves as well as others … because they do not value … respect life … theirs or anyone else’s life.

We can work together to bring more enlightened thinking to the world for the benefit of humanity … because everyone matters.

Stand strong, be brave, and think … encourage … and do the right thing because you will feel better because of your efforts and not just the results your efforts might or might not reap.

Remember evil flourishes when good people do nothing, so do what you can because every good belief, thought, and action adds to everyone’s’ good belief, thought, and actions … which has the power to create the needed changes for respect for all life.

On behalf of all who need you to stand for them too, thank you.

A Unifying Concept, Yet Also …

This idea of people connecting the dots with the respect principle is both a unifying concept yet also fosters the development of each person’s unique potential.

Ebooks … Plus Audio Books!

My growing list of ebooks will also be available one day in audio book format, though I have to check into the distribution process. Maybe innovative leader, Mark Coker of Smashwords, will add this service to his company’s ebook distribution and online ebook store?

Will keep you posted.

Thanks for dropping by and best wishes for a great day!

Jealousy Revealed By Role Models

When I was not acknowledging and pursuing what I really wanted to do , I was jealous.

Jealous because, often secretly, but not always, I knew I could do an equal or even better job than those I was jealous of as I watched their successes unfold.

Of course, it took me awhile to realize that what I wanted to do, to be who I truly was underneath the stuff I did to please other people and to conform, was my ability to not be jealous and my ability to make the choices that were right for me.

Getting my own life on the track I wanted it to be on has not been easy and has, in fact, been more difficult because of how far off the track I became trying to make people happy. Funny thing is, they never were never satisfied or happy anyway. Their expectations and wants were like leaves blowing in the wind and so much depended on the wind … forces out of their control.

Would I make the transition again if I could do it all over again?

Yes, but more importantly, the big part of me that has always wanted to help people, is now better at helping people because of two things … sharing my story, plus providing the inspiration to not do what so many of us have done … lose our dreams and our identities … because the price individuals and all those they impact pay is high.

The price paid impacts negatively the quality of our health, happiness, success, resilience, and compassion.

The price paid creates small, limited thinking often accompanied by hurtful words and actions.

The price paid is self-destructive.

And destructive to others.

So, take a moment or two or however much time you need to examine who or what you are jealous of and then take the steps to get off that treadmill and walk your own path.

For yourself and everyone else, this will be your grand gesture of respect and love.

And you are worth it.

So do it!

Sincerely,

KAITLIN ANN TREPANIER

Find Your Role Models … Here’s Another of Mine

From Brendan Gill’s 1996 book, Late Bloomers, published by Artisan, a division of Workman Publishing Company, Inc., page 84 regarding Daniel Defoe …

“It is rare for businessmen to be writers, still rarer for them to be writers of fiction, and rarest of all — indeed, almost unprecedented for them to write novels capable of winning a place among the greatest ever written, Daniel Defoe achieved this distinction late in life, after having oscillated continuously between success and failure, between the threat of debtors’ prison, and the company of kings in the course of pursuing half a dozen commercial careers.”

I continue to look up to what is possible as I work towards goals manifested by my role models believing my goals are possible too as I work towards them every day.

What about you?

Protect Your Reading Privacy … Read an EBook!

Waiting in lineups, commuting on transit, during your lunch break at work … whatever the reason you prefer people not to see what you are reading, make the easy choice and read your book on a device so the book cover does not reveal what you do not want people to see.

Not that you may be reading something bad or scandalous, but just because what you choose to read is nobody’s business except your own. I suggest checking out the ebook distributor, as well as retailer, www.smashwords.com, that distributes to the popular ebook retailers.

But then again, if you do want people to know … print books are your best show off device!

Whatever you choose, may your life be elevated with laughter, learning, and healing.

And let us thank all of those who put words to the page to share with us.

Happy reading!
