I’ve been doing more around the house, including more of the chores, more of the cooking and doing all my own laundry. I’ve also started riding my bike several times a week and I am trying to work up to riding my bike to work instead of driving. I feel better about myself for everything I do.

Good Enough

For a while, I’ve had the goal of being well respected. This goal is not really compatible with another of my goals, stop looking for external motivation. It also isn’t very honest with myself. As I’ve grown into myself recently, I’ve accepted that I am well respected by the people I care about. My integrity and passion express themselves almost daily and it shows.

I’ve marked this goal complete, not because I have directly achieved it but because I have realized I never needed to and because it is incidental to what should be, and what is, important to me.
