I mentioned that I like myself yeah?
In my comments, someone asked if I could teach them how to get here. Well, I don’t know that I can, but I can try over the next while here to attempt.
So Imma start with God. Nononononono, please don’t stop reading. Please. I’m not here to convert you or tell you that anything you believe isn’t absolutely valid. Please read.
I believe that my purpose of life is to learn as much as possible and grow as much as possible.
That’s it. That’s what I believe to be true for each of us.
Because of that point of view, I can incorporate and support just about any belief that anyone has.
Because of this belief, I believe that some people are meant to know God like I do, know God in any form they do, or not know God at all. Whatever your belief or your path in anything related to faith or what have you, I believe is all part of helping you learn and grow.
I believe the same for prayer public and private.
I say this now at the beginning of this trying to show how I got from where I was to where I am. For me a part of what got me here is this relationship with God, but it is very important to me that you know I don’t expect you to believe what I believe, I just hope you can see where I am coming from with the whole Learn and Grow thing.
So my core belief that got me here is that I believe that everything that has happened to me has been to help me learn and grow. I can either use these experiences to HELP me and make all the pain that has come from them MEAN something . . . or not.
In my case, I have learned that I can either learn the damn lesson the first time, or I can put it off and have to learn it later. However, waiting for later has meant the catalyst experience has to be even larger which has meant more painful. Which, hello, sucktastic.
Going forward, what else do you want to know? I will try to pick out the things that I know have brought me to this place of knowing I am enough, I would just like to do my best to share with you what you want to know. I’ve walked this road and I’d like to help you on your road the best I can.

Oh. And you have to read that in a southern
accent. Because that’s what I was hearing when
I was typing it. Not that I have an accent. But.
I like to be difficult.
This post reminds me of a This I Believe post I wrote …. Wow
Over six years ago.
Love and virtual hugs.
I am really happy for you for the progress you’ve made along your path. Thanks you for sharing how you’ve gotten there and for doing so with such respect for other routes.
Ah, thanks again.
I actually read this post yesterday, sitting by myself in a movie theater packed with strangers, and was very moved. I almost left but the lights went down and I really wanted to see He Who must not be Named have his ass kicked.
I’ve read it several times since, along with your other writing, and yep – still moved.
