Okay, so 12oz’ of coffee this morning and it tastes… so… good!
In the time past I was encouraged as having the qualities of a type of life coach but didn’t take it seriously enough to make it a career choice until last year when Dallas—who you know from this site unless you don’t, please do get to know him because he’s someone you won’t ever want to forget—encouraged me to look into it. So I did, and the seed was planted, but my focus was on developing my skill in premiere pro until landing work in the realm of video as an editor alongside my wife. But here’s the thing, I get “innovative and creative” with rules where Laura abides by the rules with a kind of precision that, well… frustrates me—in a good way (quick recovery)—because of the balance it enforces on me between us, without it I would fly away into the valley of the shadow of death. I “break” (bend) rules and cross lines where Laura keeps and walks them with absolute integrity! I love her! She’s a recommended video editor where I’m still working on abiding by the rules following her guidance. She’s an excellent leader, administrator! I’m truly blessed!
Ah man… there’s the alarm for my next destination!
Oh man am I ready for some coffee! I decreased my caffeine intake drastically a week ago and stayed strong at only 10oz for the past few days, the plan being to cut it off by the end of this week. The principle is self-control because caffeine has had a stronghold on me—that must’ve passed me out due it’s power because I think I was around 6 cups a day or so. The goal is not to have coffee at it’s beckon call by making the conscious choice, completely aware of the consequences when I do choose to have coffee, or chocolate even. And so far the result has been much less anxiety!
It’s amazing how sensitive our bodies are to everything, it’s frustrating and awesome at the same time.
Sitting here at my office again with a stack of books and gingerbread flavored coffee; I just finished another chapter of the book I’m reading; my goal is to have 6 books read by the end of this month. And without going into detail, it’s not likely I’ll finish, nor that simple, but it’s a good goal to aim for. Although this goal is not something I can take credit for, it was inspired through a friend, mentor, and writing coach; thank you Neizan.
My office happens to be outside this time, same coffee spot, and the weather is perfect for our story although bound to change according to the wind advisory notification prompted earlier from my phone, and a friend telling me their Google Nest reported a typhoon today. That’s alright, a little rain never hurt anyone…
You might be able to help me solve my dilemma to this overwhelming desire to travel and see the world for a twofold purpose, (1) the pleasure and experience of it, and (2) christian evangelism—not in that order of course.
I think it might be more for the pleasure of it than for evangelism because you and I can reach the world through modern day technology, but let’s go a bit deeper by exploring the psychological element.
… Laura’s awake …
Time to leave the office, but I look forward to writing to you from home, Lord willing.
