I will try to ...

Be the person who understands and forgives;
Be the person who has a nurturing heart;
Be the person who listens instead of judges;
Be the person others can count on, and most importantly by your example, are inspired to leave still other people better off.

I will Start...
with a vision of a community that becomes more nurturing and stable as a result of many following your example;
with a vision of communities where the opportunity for all citizens to grow and prosper is not denied by the actions or non-action of the unwise;
with a positive vision of communities that will provide an educated and confident citizenship that has faith in the well being of of their children and grandchildren, and future generations to come.

And build upon this vision by...
reading stories of virtuous people who you admire, and note that their strengths and values that make them admirable can be made your own;
by ignoring the worldly impression that you as an individual are powerless to effect a positive change in your community or country, and acting with faith that participation in the election of politicians who best share your views, works to the benefit of all, and with faith that your example will inspire other good citizens to do their part also.
lastly by building upon your strengths so that others can be blessed by your efforts and so that everyone including you can prosper.

I wish all a success with all your goals especially with your goals within Sparkpeople.

NOTE: I develop my own view of right and wrong and now consider myself an Independent, neither Democrat or Republican. I know that others can disagree with my idea of what is virtuous, so do what you feel is right based on your own feelings of what is right. It is your choice, I only ask that you be willing to challenge your own opinions by giving weight to opposing view points before you make the final decision when the time is ripe, without malice toward anyone merely because their beliefs differ. I consider views expressed on both CNN and FOX for the well being of my self education and feel this world will be a better place if others follow my example.

    Hi Bob, I hope to retire soon with all the COVID stuff going about it's not good to be in customer service, wish me a good fortune on that. Love the mascot, white owl! I learned EFT tapping about 10 months ago when my mother passed away and started using it for so much more. I also have some pretty limited mobility so I've found it has helped me find that I can be creative in modifying exercise moves to overcome those limitations. How's that for EFT tapping it opens doors by removing the mental blocks. To me it is pretty good. It's what it is all about Emotional Freedom.

    Add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
    and to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
    and to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful (from I Peter 5:5-8).
