Spiritual Life Coaching – Elections

Spiritual Life Coaching – Elections

Blair Milo, Mayor of LaPorte, Indiana and an extrodinary woman, is not a politician in the typical sense. She was elected, by most standards, as a very young woman to this post after graduation from Purdue and returning from a tour of duty with the Navy in the Gulf. She came back to her home town to help make it what she calls, the “Hub of Awesome.” After she was reelected last night she talked about the 400 people who voted against her and how could they have possible done that – and we chuckled about what was hardly a contested election. If you are doing something right you will have opposition. People object to change, or youthfulness, or age, or the color of your hair, or maybe even what letter of the alphabet your name begins with. I say well done Blair. Well done to all the politicians who see it as a noble profession and a way to make a community, state, or nation better.

We need more people who are not in IT for themselves but truly for service to others. We will not view progress in the same way. We will differ on social and fiscal issues but to sum up what our nation needs is smart people who will sacrifice the lure of personal financial reward for the sake of the public good. We progress when we work hard together and wait for positive leadership to help us all shape the future of a community. All politics really is local. I’ve been so impressed by how many young adults have “come home” to LaPorte sacrificing a bigger pay day in the big city for the significance of creating positive change in a smaller community that really needs them. I’m glad to call Blair Milo the Mayor of the Hub of Awesome. Dream big dreams Blair – surprise us with the audacity of true leadership.

Be Well…
