Exciting News Since My Last Post Two Months Ago

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with The Connection

Emerging AdultsWOW!  How time flies at supersonic speed when you're having FUN (F-U-N, FUN!)

The last post I did was entitled PRESSURE FORMS THE PEARL!  I had no idea what that title would mean two months later, but it's still true!

I have finished Chapters One, Two and Three and Chapter Four is due November 1 for my doctoral research project.  What a wild adventure it's been!

I am focusing on emerging adults (18 - 30 years old) who need their Identity Crisis resolved.  My hypothesis is: 

A grace-based and community-oriented seminar on the nature of identity formation for emerging adults in Boise, ID, will facilitate an understanding and healing of their identity crisis.

There are about 100,000 emerging adults who live in the Boise area.  Most of them do not feel comfortable with the boomer or builder generations (44 years old and older.)

I have a LARGER-THAN-LIFE DREAM to help these emerging adults to feel deeply loved, completely accepted and highly valued as people by finding solutions to the difficult and demanding problems of addictions, social disturbances, violence and crime.

My dream is to create a multi-cultural and multi-generational community of creative, risk-taking, team players to unite our community with PAIN Transformed into PEACE!  The emerging adults are an untapped generation of creative, risk-taking team players who have the potential to turn our world upside down (or right side up!)

ACTIVE RAIN is a potential community that would greatly benefit from an infusion of emerging adults!  The whole industry of Real Estate could be impacted!

Chapters Five and Six are due February 1.  The completed research project is due on May 1 for binding as a book.

So, until next time, HAVE FUN in THE RAIN!

Hi Dan, what a tremendous dream you have. Helping others with resolving an identity crisis is such a noble cause. I think I still have one as I perpetually ask what I want to be when I grow up. But I have grown to accept my chameleon self who morphs into various things over the years. It's great you've got through chapter 4 done. That has to be a lot of work on your part. I'll have to get a copy of the completed project. Stay in touch with me and this forum of course.

Dan,

Sounds like a very cool project in the making... a great dream.  I was not really aware that type of identity crisis could be out there, but I guess with the advent of technology and so forth, that that could add to it.  Is very interesting and I wish you well with the project, the chapters and individuals' lifes benefiting as a result.  Please check in from time to time with the udpates !   ~ Chris

Dan,

Is this a "drive-by" blog? 

Are you coming back, or are you going to stay immersed in this project?  Some of the chapters of your thesis might make good blogs... 

Just wondering if we are going to continue missing you...

Here is my recipe for peace and balance:

1.  Realize that you are not the navel of the world.

2.  Treat others the way you'd like to be treated.

3.  Realize that "the Best" is not the best and "the Worst" is not the worst.  What may seeem like it today is bound to be perceived differently tomorrow. 

4.  Do not anesthesize anything.  Feel the pain; it's there for a reason.

5.  There are NO shortcuts in life.  It's best to pay the price up front; it's a lot more expensive on the back end.

6.  Stay in the moment.  When that's not good enough, close your eyes and imagine life EXACTLY as you want it, down to the most minute details.  It will feel good and your future will be mapped out by your imagination.  Good things WILL happen.

7.  Pray!  Pray for specifics and then trust that your prayers will be answered.

That's it!  Mirela's take on it.  It works for me.

Hi Mirela, It's a miracle I could even do this post!  I will try to be more consistent with posts as I have time!  Maybe once every month instead of two (-:

Dan, I'm glad that I stopped by your blog tonight.  This challenge that you are embarking on is very inspirational.  When you talk about the emerging adult, I'm fascinated by the age range of 18-30.  Are we as a society taking longer and longer to grow up?
