The Road to 65, Miles 275-6: Pledge Time

August 29-30, 2015, Prescott- As I told myself on Friday, this weekend was quiet and not overly ambitious, though I did attend a planning meeting for Hope Fest, 2015, on Saturday and did complete two online Red Cross classes, this evening.

Life is good, even with all the friends, and friends and relatives of friends, who have gone on to the spirit realm, this year.  Work was good last week, and I am sure I will get the work I am supposed to get, as the weeks and months roll out.

It’s always worthwhile, to me, to at least give sincere critics a hearing, though being true to oneself is a pre-requisite for living a good life.  As it stands, I am my own harshest critic, and choose to look towards areas in which I might obviate that criticism, by making improvements.

So, here are five pledges:

  1.  I will continue to stand alongside my friends, as they face their struggles.
  2. I will continue to improve on not crowding people.
  3. I will maintain a sense of ownership of my life and of my choices.
  4. I will support, financially, only what I can support without placing a burden on others.
  5. I will refrain from guilt over what I didn’t do for someone else, so long as I have done my level best.

  1. That sounds like a pretty good weekend. I’m sure you will get work along the way — but don’t be surprised when it is a little sporadic! Being true to oneself is key to being helpful to others — a therapist suggested to me that as long as you think out your actions/reactions you won’t go wrong, and there’s nothing to feel guilty about.


    • It doesn’t take much to make me happy. Yes, my line of work is sporadic, depending as it does on the schedules of others. I have gotten far better at thinking things out, and being less impulsive!


  2. learning experiences, helpful, sometimes painful, always a promotion to a new level of awareness and wisdom–the school of hard knocks. praying for a full week of work…
