I make goals - but am willing to change or scrap them if life gives me different outcomes.
I have no expectations of myself and others - except effort, and even that can't be judged perfectly.
don't seek anything from the Church except a place for me to gather,
commune and help others grow. Everything else is gravy - and the primary responsibility for
everything rests with me.
I try to live my life with a clear
recognition that "I am" - so I deal with "this is" and trust life/God to
lead me to what will be. An important part of "what is" for me occurs as
a result of my church membership, and a huge part of who I am is a
result of the paradigm I learned growing up in the LDS Church - but, as I've
said more than once, I have been an oddball since as long as I can
remember, so not fitting in totally and not being like everyone else isn't an issue for me. I am who I am, and I
can testify of how liberating and empowering that is. I am not defined
by others, including not being defined by opposition to others.
I simply am, and, for that reason, I am at peace.
