full steam ahead

hey all! sorry no blog yesterday. duty calls! you can ponder that on your own and see if you can figure out what i mean. :-)

so...obviously....LOST is on tonight...and i can't wait...but i'm not going to write a LOST blog post. i'm just not.

i do want to reveal something that i'm super excited about. a while back i asked you the question, "what do you want to be when you grow up?" well, i finally figured that out for myself.

ready?

i want to inspire people.

how about that...huh? i've done a lot of thinking, and the thing that i love most is when i get the sense that i've inspired someone. either to move forward when they were stuck, or to think or feel something that they couldn't before. it's amazing! if i could do that on a regular basis...well....i can't even imagine how that would feel. seriously. but....the first step is to identify the goal....now i can figure out how to do it! i guess, next would be to figure out how to pay the mortgage with it too.... :-) every plan has it's flaws i guess.

less of me...

I always find your words of encouragement so sincere and I would also say that you are a very loyal and dependable person. Qualities that are hard to find nowadays. I am so excited for you that you are finding something that feels right and feels good, inspiring others is also in how you live your life. And you live very authentically :)

That's awesome. I did a Landmark course once and at the end of the course you had to declare yourself for your future. Who I wanted to be in the world was inspiration. I'm right there with you!
