"No More Crybabies!" by Dancing Dolphin - 4.6.17
I don't know how long you've been on this journey. But mayhaps you'll give some of us "crybabies" a break. I've been on this particular portion of the journey for 16 years, now. And in that time, we have been told "tomorrow" or "next week" or "soon" every single day. Literally. So forgive us crybabies if we're a little cranky and need our diapers changed.
then there's this:
Don't forget that your thoughts are powerful! Why not focus on what your Life will be like in the future? How amazing it will feel to help others?Do you think perhaps in the intervening sixteen years we haven't had a moment or three to reflect on what we're going to do with our impending money and freedom? I'm known for being short and sweet with my words. My "synopsis" business plan for humanitarian projects is six pages. It covers major efforts in waterway systems improvements, Urban Farming projects, wetlands restoration, Oyster bed restoration, homeless and arts programs. Oh, and I'm adopting the town where I live, too. It was all I could do to squeeze it to 6 pages.
Developed a virtual core staff to flesh out and lead the projects I won't be directly involved in. The first month after exchange, I will be jet hopping from town to town, hiring the folks I want to work with on these projects.
Separately planned in great detail the part I'll be directly involved in. This involves traveling this country's backwaters and blessing the remote pockets I find therein.
Then there's the gifting list. What started out as a vague idea of blessing my family to some degree, has thanks to the zim's purported value, expanded to a list of 500 people to be gifted significantly. Each of which will be recruited to find 10 more people to gift. And another level, too. And again.
So not only have I been imagining and trying to manifest my future reality, I'm itching to get started. So many things to do. So you'll forgive me if I tell you to take care of your own house and let us crybabies take care of ours.
