Our Main Purpose

If we don’t teach them by our example….

Our main purpose, it would seem, is to teach our children.

I mean everything. And never get bored with the basics.

Teach them mental responsibility, physical responsibility, spiritual responsibility, career responsibility, and daily ‘life administrative’ responsibility.

This is what I live for!

You Can Do This jeff

Not Sure I Can Do This
Not Sure I Can Do This

Two days ago, you heard, “I’m not sure I can do this.”

Today, back at it to see if it can be done.

We scoured the area north, south, east and west of Disney World, looking for the proverbial American Dream, a nice house with a big back yard.

We sacrificed many things to pursue the American Dream. The house we were living in at the time was 30 miles from Disney’s Contemporary Resort, where I was working.

Hey, did I mention that we could only afford one car and Cheryl used it? How did I get to work? Great question. I rode my bicycle. We eventually got a second car, but not for a couple years.

Anyway, back to the point. We followed one dead-end path after another, like many couples do.

We never gave up. Although in hind sight, it may have been the smart thing to do. The clock was ticking. We were missing out on some things others don’t miss out on.

Not Fully Awake

Grabbed the wrong folder?
Grabbed the wrong folder?

Been awake for an hour now, but not fully, wide-eyed, awake.

Sort of a numb-awake, if that’s even a term. The kind of semi-conscious consciousness from working really hard at something and having “sore muscles” from it.

Except, these muscles aren’t physical, they’re spiritual. Ever think so much, or meditate so much that you’re mind and spirit are foggy the next day? Perhaps it’s the equivalent of a hangover, without the nausea.

So many people are struggling with so many things. It’s everywhere and affects everyone. It overwhelms me.

And I often feel guilty.

Do you ever feel similar to this?

Crazy thing is, it’s always been like this.

So it deserves more dialogue, if for no other reason than to clear some thoughts, or at the very least, grab the right folder.

What Was Your Answer?

Yesterday’s post asked, “What do followers want”?

What was your answer? Mine was simple.

Passion!

Followers want a leader who has passion. Passion to make a difference. Passion to do good. For other people.

Ever wonder why people do the things they do? Ever wonder why you do the things you do? I do. Tomorrow, I’ll share my “why?”. Let’s compare again. Not comparing to see who’s right or wrong, simply an exercise to get us thinking.

“An unexamined life is not worth living”. Why are you here? What’s your purpose? Carpe diem.
