The bullseye aim suggests there's a target, yet offers no promise we'll hit the mark. I'll strive for the aim without expecting more than my best possible result. In fact, I'll expect sometimes to utter fail the mark.
I didn't go to the desert this week... Emily and I needed to take care of some things together and I stayed home instead. I'm glad I didn't go...though part of me thinks I'm just rationalizing away my disappointment in not facing down my fears out there - as I always have fears "out there." My out there is always someplace I'm reluctant to go - though usually I go, often not as far or deep as I'd like...but I go. How far did you go this week or month? Did you push past the place you'd normally turn back? At what price or consequence? I'll have my chance again in another two weeks... I'll go far then, I think - though I never really know for sure. I'll go far then, I think - as far as the simple man I am can muster. #GoingAlone
I was recently asked if I will ever adventure in places like the mountains, or at the sea, or on a lake or a river or - heaven forbid! - in the company of others. I'd certainly do such things, and with other people; though I'd never expect to find what is best discovered by Going Alone. My name is Kurt Bell and I am delighted that you have taken some time to share a little of The Good Life with me. I'm available on social media at the links below and can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org Going Alone is an independent approach to living, uncovering what is real, and making peace with the facts of what is true no matter how the truth makes us feel. I upload at least one video a week for this series on my YouTube channel. The Good Life is a formulated plan of objectives and principals designed to help us live a more virtuous life in accord with sound reasoning. I upload at least one video a month for this series.
