Happy Thor’s Day!
Probably this week could be summed up with the simple act of taking a deep breath before the plunge of getting going. On the one hand, I feel anxious (the good kind) when it comes to my business virtues and that would normally make my vision of the future distorted but a simple deep breath, hold it and then breathe out might be all i need right now.
“Self-Reliance is the spirit of independence, which is achieved when each person is their own master and no one else’s’ .”
Principle: To walk in the spirit of independence by being my own master and no one else’s
Goal: To find and engage a new career path that puts my new degree to work.
Bucket List: To be a published author of at least five books.
I like what I am doing here. My career as a writer needs to become primary, but I feel my secondary career is a good compliment. The main goal of being financially independent is still in front of me.
“Industriousness is the willingness to work hard, always striving for efficiency, as a joyous activity in itself”
Principle: Work with the enjoyment of work itself.
Goal: To write 1000 words per day for a year.
Bucket List: Write A Novel and Get it Published.
I like any work but I am working toward enjoying what I do as well. I find that what I now need is a greater challenge.
“Hospitality is the willingness to share what one has with one’s fellows, especially when they are far from home.”
Principle: To share out of my abundance to help people where I can with their life’s journey.
Goal: To begin regular significant donations to The Clergy Project as a way of paying them back.
Bucket List: To own my own home.
Just to want to give back to a group here who has done so much for me. Far more in the last year than all my churches combined ever did.
