Are YOU a “Human Event”?

human event2

I have been a very successful counselor over the past several years helping individuals with anger, life controlling issues, and self-worth.  I am currently making a “shift” in my practice to “Life Coaching” so to help these who have been healed to move forward in their life journey.

The other day a friend gave me some great advice in helping me to further promote my new practice by saying … “To be a coach there must be a human event.”   I swear I must be dyslexic because when I read his comment I thought he said: “To be a coach YOU must be a human event.”

That statement (which I misread) touched me deeply and I thanked him for his profound insight.  Then I realized that I had misread his statement and at first felt quite foolish … THEN … as I thought about it for a moment … I realized that maybe my dyslexia had helped me to realize a powerful truth.

“Human Event” … what do those words mean?   As I began my research immediately found that “Human Events “  was a weekly conservative publication which former U.S. President Ronald W. Reagan‘s said was his favorite reading for years … But that is not what I am referring to here.   Then I ran across these words written by Thomas Jefferson on July 4th 1776: “When in the Course of human events …. “   which we all know are the first five words of the “Declaration of independence”.

BUT just what is a “Human Event” … or even a better question … “Am I a Human Event?”  THAT is a powerful question and a profound thought.   What does it mean to BE a “Human Event”?

YAHOO defines Human Events as “things that happen in human life and human societies. e.g. wars, treaties, establishments of governments, taxation, etc.–any events that involve humans” (http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080124050708AAN8FXj)    BUT I wanted to get much more specific as to just what a Human Event meant to me.  In order to do that I first must define the word “event”.  One definition I found of the word of “event” was: “A significant occurrence or happening”.   (http://www.thefreedictionary.com/event)    So … I can safely assume that a “Human Event” would be a “significant occurrence or happening” caused by a “Human” … such asyou or I.

NOW the BIG question …  Are YOU a significant occurrence or happening?  THAT, my friend, is an important question which this writing will not allow me time to expound upon … other than to simply challenge your thinking as to how this may personally apply to your life.

I just know that … due to my Dyslexia in misreading a friend’s comment … I am challenged today to ask myself “Am I a Human Event” who is making a difference in other’s lives?   To change my world … and to help change others … I myself must first be changed or in the process of changing.   I must be a “Human Event”!
