“One beat at a time” comes from an echo of wisdom passed down from my father. Whenever life would become challenging for the family, himself or his kids, he would often say, “It’s going to be ok, take it one day at a time.” For me, with a therapeutic ear, I hear the words, One beat at a time. Sometimes in life, it is best to slow things down to the beat of our heart. Your heartbeat symbolizes and reflects the essence of life. It is the most natural Sign of Life.
He helps people see a brighter side of things at their worst moments.
Yes... all of the water references are intentional... you see... Steven is a Gentleman Pirate. He always discovers the treasure hidden away in others, but when they realize they have it... he leaves it there. Somehow, though, he still manages to come away from those experiences with the treasure of knowing that he has instilled hope and blessed someone's life. Who needs real treasure when you have that?
We touch people every day and most of the time it is a bad day for them but Steven somehow is able to reach in and touch them as humans and brings a calm to the crisis.
In times where I felt as if no-one understood where I was coming from and what I was experiencing, Steven listened to my issue, situation or experience. Through his active listening he asked questions designed to prompt my own thoughts in order to arrive at my own conclusions or solutions. Without criticism or judgement, Steven offered additional insight and suggestions that aided in achieving a level of normalcy, understanding and the beginning steps required to achieve a return of peace.
Steven has impacted me professionally because he has provided a valuable resource for us... himself. His ability to maintain a calm presence even in situations that involve crisis, has been crucial to helping us navigate some unfamiliar waters.
Steven has an uncanny role of guiding you safely and deliberately through the issue at hand while making you feel as if you are at the helm of your ship... even though he has the rudder.
