What do you think about our Logo? To us, our logo embodies our passion for connecting with one’s heart on a deeper level, to collectively calm the storms of life.
We have all experienced challenges in our lifetime. It is our responses to those life challenges that dictate our success or failure. Our lifetime of experiences is the journey that has brought us to this point in time and place. Taking responsibility for our decisions is not up for debate – what we choose to do or how we choose to respond requires our involvement on some level. For instance, when you woke up this morning who or what woke you up? Was it your alarm, pet, or perhaps a small child screaming your name? Either you set the alarm, purchased the dog or... well you get the picture. To boil it down, you can make decisions that directly impact your life. Still don’t believe me? Stop paying your taxes or electric bill, and you know the rest. The point is, YOU are in charge of your life. You are the commodore or common denominator of your decisions.
Oh, the intoxicating whiff of power sounds so empowering, doesn’t it? Seriously, at some point, someone left you in charge of this highly complex, finely tuned, integrated network of cells and signals wrapped in flesh and just let you go. Yep, that is pretty much what happened don’t you agree? Either way, you did not exactly come with a user manual. By right of birth alone, we became mini rulers of our dominion. We learned so much after being dumped into the lap of daycare as our education process began and shortly after that completed. We learned social norms, the rules of academia, and the laws of survival. Often, we also learned useful skills and coping mechanisms to enhance our survival and marketability. Along the way, we have probably encountered new situations, ones we did not feel equipped to handle. I am sure you can think of a few. So, we made some adjustments to maintain our position or survival and carried on to the best of our ability. By any chance did any of those adjustments create dysfunction? This dysfunction we are talking about can appear in our lives along a broad spectrum. What about that rumor we started about little Sally that had her in tears? Or, perhaps the time we had a big fight during our family reunion. We have all seen this dysfunction present from a small blip, to a raging volcano spewing from our lives into the ones around us.
The waves in our logo represent opportunities for directional change to overcome or minimize this dysfunction. The meaning behind the name of the company, Changing Waves, is hopefully much clearer now. The cliff notes version; we start with the heart and find ways collaboratively to work through challenges together. So, with that, welcome to the Changing Waves Blog we look forward to collaborating with you and to future posts!
