It should be known that I have the greatest job on Earth. (It should also me known that the passive voice is liked by me and being used appropriately by me in the preceding sentance.) With that in mind, I'd like to explain my most recent assignment from my boss: I am to discover my MISSION in life. This has turned out to be a life changing and revelatory experience for me. Don't worry, I have not figured it all out (so this blog is not entirely a humblebrag, no need to alert Harris Wittels, just let him keep analyzing Phish--and if you get that reference in its entirety we need to be better friends because I just went deep). However, I have learned more about myself, some of which I think I'd like to share here and since you are reading this you might just care enough to be interested (if you don't and you're using an Apple computer just click the red circle in the upper left. If you're not using an Apple computer, or similar computing product, click the box in the upper right whether you care or not because I'm having a party and you're not invited.)
Here we go!
1) I will make mistakes, but I refuse to be defined my those mistakes.
This will be difficult, it will mean cutting ties with those who refuse to define me by my penance, it also means correcting mistakes and moving forward so that I don't hold myself back.
A beautiful song about moving on.... (Actually I don't know what its about, but that's what I get from it)
2) I will not praise mediocrity.
This means holding myself and those with whom I choose to associate to a much higher standard and not settling as I pursue the measure of my creation.
3) I will laugh everyday, and I'll make others do the same.
Self explanatory..... Everyone needs to laugh, and I've got lots to laugh at.
Yup, that's me. I like to laugh.
4) I will always care enough to listen.
I know I have a lot of personality flaws, but that doesn't mean I can't be a listening ear. Plus, I usually have no advice, so I'll never impose it on anyone.
Yeah yeah, I know this picture is the least cool one, I'm not always on my A-game...
5) I will live so that no one will question my loyalty.
Christ is my King. See number one for clarification.
