I’m constantly looking for business opportunities.  I think I must have been wired to have a business of my own.  I just wasn’t equipped with the personal finances to do it.  But I’m forever looking and thinking about what I could do.  Only a few things really strike a chord within me.


One is a company that prints customized family heritage books, and the other is a non-profit that records stories from people’s lives, saving their voices and stories for posterity.


Preservation of family history, preservation of legacy seems to ignite my business-idea passions.


Then, the reality comes in.  I have no plan, and I have no money. 


So, I pick myself up from my daydream, and go get ready for my J.O.B.


A job, coupled with a lack of finances, leads to dead-end dread.  You just do what you have to do to make it in this life.  And I have so much to do it feels like bricks on my chest.  I have to work two jobs right now, (one that is very time-intensive) take care of the family finances, spend adequate time with Alma….. and the list seems to run on to eternity.  Is this just the burden of life, Father; just a part of the curse?  Or do I create this way of life because of my lack of trust?


I think I have all the necessary tools to focus my attention on what is most important, but I lack a critical ingredient:  the discipline of laser focus.
