In the movie "Confessions of a Shopaholic", the young woman tells the guy he's not a good investment. Her opinion spurs him to really look at his life. He was very successful, but was he investment worthy?
Every minute, every dollar, every worry or thought or blog or prayer is an investment in something. If it's squandered, I invested it into the black hole of wasted energy. But wasted or not - it is invested into something.
I've spent the last two days mostly alone. The kids are gone and Mike is out of town. I've been busy putting the house back into order and establishing a new order for just the two of us. But I've also had a lot of time to think.
Where do I want to invest all this time and energy I now have? The plan has been to really delve into my writing, but I don't want to just do that blindly. Intent leads to Purpose. Purpose leads to Passion. Passion leads to Wise Investments. I don't want to just move in a direction because it lays open in front of me.
I want to challenge my plans, challenge my choices and then invest all of me.
Intent - Purpose - Passion - Investment
