2014 The Right Way

As 2013 progressed last year I just kept having this nagging feeling that I wasn't doing things the right way. It was too much of a struggle, much more than usual, sort of like I put my canoe in the water and was paddling as hard as I could to go upstream. Sure I was making what looked like some progress but the amount of effort relative to how far I was moving was out of whack!

I'm declaring that 2014 will be the year that I do things the right way.

Perhaps having this precious puppy Tamaya under my stewardship for the last four months has shown me that stepping up, and doing what I know to be right (despite the plethora of advice being directed toward me like a well intentioned tsunami), is how I can feel content at the end of each day.  When she goes to sleep at night happy, secure, and healthy I feel that all is right in the world in that moment.

Now it's time for me to be a good steward to the other facets of my world. I would love to go to bed each night knowing I had been a good brother, entrepreneur, mentor, neighbor, home keeper, puppy-daddy… 

So watch out 2014, for there WILL be changes. I will stay true to myself, to my moral code, to my standards this year. You can challenge my strength, my courage, or even my happiness, but you cannot challenge who I am.

I will bring Drew to the table each and every day, and live 2014 the right way.

Dear Drew,

As a friend that only sees you occasionally and always values your openness, I applaud you. Is it proper for me to say how proud I am of you, out of place maybe, but I greatly respect the processes you have worked through to get to this point.

Good going Drew, keep it up!

Stitches West? See you then.

Always, Jo

Good for you, wherever that leads you! Can't go wrong being authentically you.
