When I look back at this time.in my life in my Seventies, in my Eighties, I want to know that I gave it all I got. That I gave myself a shot. I want to see this moment anticipating having perspective on it later. I’m so scared, because I’m not doing what I’m supposed to be doing. But for the first time in my life I’m getting palpitations and nausea from anxiety, and I’m PRAYING that I’m doing what I’m meant to be doing.
Jumping in feet first has always seemed to work out for you.
My mother often asks me when I’m going to get a job, if I don’t realize I have to work. I always ask her “So you don’t think what I’ve been doing for the last seven months is working?”
She never has an answer for me.
And it is good for us to recignize that because in the midst of all that, God loves us, and God is good.
These are the only wise things I know
Love you all.
There is no shame in any of these things as long as you are acting on behalf of your fellow man, and you are LEARNING. There is NO SUCH THING as a stupid question, I don’t care what it is, except for the one you didn’t ask when you didn’t know because you were afraid. Don’t let ANYBODY EVER make you feel ashamed about learning. If they do, it’s because you being vulnerable makes them feel vulnerable, which is a scary place for them. So they silence those fears by deriding you. Don’t let them. Learn, grow, RISK, and thereby lead, by example.
Let’s all tell stories about fear…
They can be true, first hand or second hand, but it’s got to be a story about someone being confronted by fear, and how they dealt with it.
… This might be a good game for the Speare Bearer’s audiences to play…
All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.
Stay hungry. Stay foolish.
