Protecting the Asset

The best asset we have for making a contribution to the world is ourselves
— Greg McKeown

You must invest in the complete you.  Every bit of you, without skimping.  You must invest in your mind, your body, and your spirit.  If you don't take the time to, you might miss the opportunity to offer the world something that no one else can, a full and unique you.  I have been taking the time to invest in myself.  It's hard and believe it or not, actually takes work.  

There might be backlash from those around you that don't fully understand or take the time to really open their eyes to what it is you are after.  But don't let that discourage you.  I've realized that if I don't value and put myself first, things I don't want filling that space, start to take up room, and clearing it all back out can be a lengthy process.

Start now.  Invest in yourself so that you can give the world something that no one else can.

Do You

If you see a difference between where you are and where you want to be, consciously change your thoughts, words, and actions to match your grandest vision
— Neal Donald Walsch

I'm still working on getting over the fear of the what-ifs and the possibility of people passing judgement on my decisions.  I'm not sure if you're anything like me, but if you are, feeling like that can suck.  If someone else were to tell me they felt that way, I'd tell them not to care.  Much easier said than done.  I'm working on it.


I'm consciously working on not caring about others opinions or judgements of me.  If you are like me, I hope you are too.

I've realized I don't have to explain myself.  I do not owe anyone anything and that is a fantastic truth.
