        Feb 10 2013: I haven't met many who have a clue as to their abilities and skills. Only a few years ago, I didn't have anywhere near the ability or skill level that I have now - and in so many areas, let alone one. I only began to discover that when my passion became knowing who and what I am, and then learning about what that meant. THAT was and is a goal worthy of ME.

        How much different today is than when I had goals that were not only too small for me, but the pursuit of them demeaned who and what I am - which is probably why motivation wanes so quickly in those circumstances; they weren't worthy of me. I am far too powerful and magnificent a "being" to piddle around (waste my time) with illusory goals. (Everyone is but few know it)
