Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis presents:
I lost…& *why* that’s Okay.
People all over town, wherever I go, want to have the same conversation. How are you? What happened? Why?
My only regret is letting folks down, and not being able to serve and help those in need. Our city is woefully unprepared for fire and flood, the conflict between slates has left us mired in a costly status quo around homelessness, and affordability while making good progress isn’t treated urgently enough. I would have loved to try to help, communicate, listen, learn, form coalitions, and make real progress around real solutions to ongoing problems. Maybe next time.
For now my newsletter—I’ll keep writing it, from my site waylonlewis.com. For now, I’ll join some boards (I’m on two right now, two others have come forward and expressed interest) and serve in smaller more focused ways. I’ll meet with Mayor Aaron, Matt, others and see how/if I can help in some small way. I care no less today than three days ago.
Mindful Mondays, with Waylon Lewis.
“Every Monday, I offer a mindful reminder for our everyday life.” ~ Waylon Lewis
Waylon Lewis reflects on the results of his City Council race this Mindful Monday.
“I wanted to offer that everything in me just wants to feel sorry for myself and sit in a hole and kind of heal and mend and cry and not go out. And I feel a little ashamed or, defeated.
And, I think it’s important in a way to do the opposite, to model that it’s not bad to lose. It’s part of life.” ~ Waylon Lewis

One Day Later: an Update ~
Inside this video update, Waylon talks about the value and benefit in healing/processing in sunshine and community, instead of being embarrassed, sad or disappointed by loss.
