The Turn

March 27, 2009

So here’s a major minor thought:

I was walking into work today and it hit me that I’ve been doing things to get things for some time now.  How can I get what I need?

And to be honest, I’m not happy with the results.  Nope.

So, instead, I’m going to live for giving instead.  I’m not perfect or efficient or a saint, but I’m really going to try to turn this around.

I have gifts, I have ideas, I have things that make me special, etc, and the good news is that I can give those things even when I’m broke.  So it’s a whole new set of rules that leave me less encumbered by the financial consequences of “living for getting” unsuccessfully.

It has to do with… with not feeling so alone anymore.  Not feeling that I had to get everything I needed in life from an uncaring world.  I had to trick it into letting me survive.  It makes me sound like a Disney villain, but it’s true.

I’m just so glad to have made it this far.
