It has been 78 days today from day one of this blog. Over the past several hours, I've pondered and reflected whether it has served the purpose for which it began.
First on my agenda; is to become a healthier, happier, more productive person. Then; this journey is a hard one. I feel, sharing and reflecting through writing would, and in fact is, helping me to look at my attitudes and behaviors in a more objective way. Lastly, hopefully, inspire another to look more closely at their journey and see if it might go higher.
I will concede, there are a couple days that come close to exposing more than I aught. In the interest of balance and honesty, I must include the dark side of my feelings as well as the light. These revelations I share are no more than my reactions and feelings on any given event or situation. In no way am I pointing fingers or cast dispersions on another. This is not a ventilation tool, but a reflection pond. This is to ferret out my character defects and no body else's.
It would be foolish to believe that we are not affected by those nearest and dearest to us, therefore, occasionally they will be part of my reflections. This is not to say they are the cause. You see, the first place to look for the origination of my problem is in the mirror. I know now that if I have an issue, I am the problem.
Along the journey of fantasizing into reality my freedom from jealousy, pride, insecurity, fear or any other dark character defect, is to lay it bare and look at it. It is my heart and soul alone, I lay out. My prayer is to come up higher, I hope you're enjoying the view.
