Congratulations to Amber and Sarah! You both received 10 blog bucks for correctly guessing the last blog post's title!
So - today is my birthday. Not sure how I feel about that. I swing between hoping everyone forgets it and not wanting it to go unnoticed. That's not just this year - that is EVERY year since I was a teenager.
To "celebrate" the big day, I have written my Manifest Donbro. Over the past few months I have been working on having more faith in the course of my life, learning who I am, and overall finding contentment and peace. Over the course of this time I have made some decisions about how I am going to live my life and the type of person I want to become. I don't have these things down - I'm far from it, but these are things that I want to work on, for the rest of my life.
Manifest DonbroI will not let others make my decisions for me. I will make up my mind and stay with my decision. If I make the wrong decision, I will fix it - but the fear of being wrong won't stop me from making a decision.
I will not allow others to bring me down, I strive to lift up others and will surround myself with people who want to lift or be lifted - not those who want others to come down with them.
I will make the most of each moment. When faced with a letdown, I will turn it into something positive (when life hands me lemons - I'll learn to juggle cause I don't like lemonade).
I will learn what is needed, If I do not get the most out of each experience, I only have myself to blame.
I will leave everything better than I found it, including and most especially people.
I will not give something to someone if it does not belong to them.
I will seek my purpose, piece by piece and fulfill it...piece by piece, until I am the person the Lord knows I can become.
I will take time each day to sit in silence.
I will continue to seek knowledge.
I will forgive myself for each time I fail. Failure brings weaknesses to the surface, creating the opportunity to remove them.
What would be on your manifesto?
