6/1/2014 – 6/1/2015
Several years ago I was going through another change in my life and I wrote the following:
- I will follow my heart
- I will fix what is broken
- I will be a better man
(Click here to see what I think makes a man)
- I will respect and love myself
- I will write about my journey
(Click here to read my Blog)
- I will let the future come
- I will let the past go
This is about me achieving those things.
When I wrote the above it was just a ‘vision’ of mine to be that Better Man. I pretty quickly found out that just setting yourself a whole heap of rules was not going to do it.
I realised I needed more tools, not more rules.
I also needed a bit of a mantra to my life. I didn’t really come up with the following, it sort of evolved into my daily mantra, where I got to the point that it is written in the front of my work diary, my journal and as a little plaque on my desk. One thing about tools is that if they are not nearby and ready to use then they are not really of any use. (click here to see my Blog entry about this) Each day my mantra is:
- Be Peaceful
- Be Mindful
- Positive Impressions
(click here to see my Blog entry about religion, God and that stuff)
- Not Too complicated
- Moments of Joy
I suppose the last one is more a tool that was lent to me by my wife. She is able to see the moments of Joy in all aspect of our life. Have a look at her blog at:
So, I suppose here it is…. me, now, often thinking about before or planning for later, but always (well mostly) attempting to be that better man.
