“What I saw was that no matter who we are, life is going to put us through the changes we need to go through. The question is: Are we willing to use this force for our transformation? I saw that even very intense situations don’t have to leave psychological scars, if we are willing to process our changes at a deeper level.” – Michael A. Singer - The Surrender Experiment

I am the proud owner of

a Red Leather Recliner Chair. 

“People often say that motivation doesn’t last.  Well, neither does bathing, that’s why we recommend it daily.” – Zig Ziglar

I say proud because...

It has a deep, special meaning to me, and it is my favorite color.  Its first owner was my stepfather, and he was my business mentor that I would call about my career path.  I valued his thoughts and opinions above anyone else because he had some similar experiences in his life, and he had my best interest at heart.  He and I both played college football, he at Alabama and myself at Illinois.  He passed away in the spring of 2016.  Its second owner was my younger brother, who was one of my best friends.  My brother had developed issues with his hip and needed to have a comfortable chair where he could sit and occasionally, he would sleep in it because it helped to relieve the pain.  My brother died in the fall 2019.  My sister-in-law, along with my niece and nephew, struggled with what to do with the chair as it meant the world to my brother and to them it was a reminder of him.

My Red Chair

She asked if I would like the chair and without hesitation I said yes. My red chair sits in my master suite and I use it to have my mindful time of the day, reading, meditating, just sitting to feel feelings, and sometimes, I even have conversations with the previous owners.  My red chair is special because it has depth of meaning to me and in someone else’s hands would mean something completely different.  Do you have your “red leather chair?”  This kind of place may not work for you, but do you have a place to sit and read, to contemplate life’s challenging questions, to meditate, or to just feel the feelings in your life?  I hope you do and if not, find what works for you because we all need a place to have our red chair experiences.
