Updated my profile-Personal Mission Statement [Aug. 17th, 2008|07:47 pm]
Lanette
Let's see if this makes me highly effective people.

1. Become a person I like and respect more each year.

2. Make a difference in the lives of the people I love and some strangers. This includes the goal to make magic moments and memories. I have unique qualifications to do this and should not forget that I am here to bring the fun.

3. Be an interesting character, the lead in my own life, never a victim or a bit part no matter what happens. This means that my health issues can't define who I am as a human. I am not the first or last person to face physical challenges. I will be inspiring period and excellent period. NOT just excellent for a person "facing my challenges" or "with my health problems". I am a character that needs no excuses or disclaimers to exist. They only exist because I have to lead with them. People can't even tell I'm ill unless I tell them usually. They think I just have an interesting walk. So what? Stop making excuses. I don't need it anymore. I'm not just good for a "person with disabilities", I'm good period. It's time to be brave enough to be that without caveat. My performance needs no excuse. I'm performing well in life, and very low in confidence.

4. Give back consistently. Only the amount I can afford or form in which I can give should vary, never IF I give. I want this to increase each year either in amount of time. The way I give back is meant to ease suffering, not to inspire and delight. This mission differs from number 2 in this way. I must give in the way that makes me feel fantastic, not in the way that makes me feel depressed as if I'm peeing into the ocean. I feel like I've made some progress. Instead of fighting fighting, feeling the injustice everywhere and always letting that anger spill over into life, I can channel that into a focus of easing suffering that has impact. I must do that or the anger and injustice that happens in the world will interfere with my other missions. It is possible for me to give back in a way that eases suffering without filling my heart with anger and bitterness. These are the ways for me to give back.

Word, within 2 hours we shall be able to SHOWER and flush the toilets. Hooray for running hot water. I love my first world problems.

"make magic moments and memories. I have unique qualifications to do this This is the damn truth. I think this is one of those skills that is easy to overlook, and if you have it you don't think that it's anything special and that everybody is like that. Everybody is *not* like that. Lanette definitely has mad skillz at this, and it's something that I admire about her.

So glad to hear you give props to yourself about this one.

Thank you. It is a life mission and a very difficult one. I'm hoping to make significant progress with it this year. :)
