Not Your Average Operator, Ep: 20 – Loss and Remembrance
We never know what the future holds. It can be intimidating and scary. It has a constant influence on our everyday life and how we go about living it. So how do we go about dealing with the one of the worst possibilities….loss of a loved one?
This week, Mike returns to the show after a challenging week away at home and shares his experience of losing his grandmother and how the negatives ultimately turned into positives. Mike and Melon discuss the process and how you can go about utilizing past experience to ultimately influence the future.
Additionally, November 11th is Veteran’s Day (US) and Remembrance Day (AUS). Mike and Melon open up about what it means to them personally. Mike shares some reflections on what it means to serve and how to show appreciation to veterans. Melon describes his past two weeks on participating in a ceremony that he was blessed to be a part of to honor allied troops.
We always fear the loss, but we must realize the true power of remembrance.
We are also taking listener questions- so if there is a personal or funny question you’d like the guys to answer, send them in.
The team are also planning an upcoming Facebook Live session so stay tuned.
The reading Mike referred to left to him by his Grandmother is from Rev Kenneth Semon:
To “let go” does not mean to stop caring; it means I can’t do it for someone else. To “let go” is not to cut myself off; it is a realisation I can’t control another. To “let go” is not to enable, but to allow learning from natural consequences. To “let go” is not to fix, but to be supportive. To “let go” is not to be in the middle arranging all the outcomes, but to allow others to affect their destinies. To “let go” is not to be protective, it’s to permit another to face reality. To “let go” is not to criticise and regulate anybody, but to try and become what I dream I can be. To “let go” is not to regret the past, but to grow and live for the future. To “let go” is to fear less and love more.
