Why am I blogging?

“Begin with the end in mind.” – Stephen Covey

My intentions for this blog are:

  1. To Create — This blog will be a creative outlet, an opportunity for me to bring into being something imaginative, entertaining, and occasionally, hopefully, inspired.
  2. To Reflect – This blog will encourage self-reflection, an indispensible activity on my journey of self-realization (the pursuit of self-knowledge). The blog will also be a journal of sorts, a record of memorable experiences, learnings, and other musings.
  3. To Create Intimacy — By sharing of myself, this blog will enhance my existing relationships, and possibly develop new ones.
  4. To Contribute – I want this blog to be of value to others, one of my contributions to the world. How they might benefit remains to be seen. I’m optimistic that someone will learn, grow, or be inspired. That someone will dream bigger or live more boldly than they otherwise would have.

I don’t know to what extent I’ll achieve my objectives. Yet I choose to proceed regardless. I have faith that clear intentions and perseverance will bring results.
