Prayers of peace and gentleness to you and your loved ones on this Thanksgiving 2010.
I keep thinking more and more about my life, my work and place in the world. Am I really doing the work and living the life that at my fullest potential? I don’t mean near…I mean at. I can definitely say ‘no.’
It’s not that I don’t love what I do for my clients building websites, teaching WordPress, coaching clients on how to build a following and get more clients using the web and showing people how to use social media effectively. I really love it. And often I’m passionate about it – especially the teaching part.
Time to take a little deeper look at what I could be doing. I’m pretty clear I only got one shot at this life and I don’t plan on spending too much of it doing things I’m not absolutely passionate about. Stay tuned…
I say it all the time. I love being a dad.
It’s the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done – while also being the most difficult. But there’s been no better set of lessons for me in my own life – and in my spiritual growth – than watching my kids and the affect I have on their development. I’ve learned again and again that their behaviors…their moods…their acting out and the like are more often a reflection of something inside me than it is in them. At least that’s how it is having young kids.
Now, to do my own work so that my shortcomings don’t become their’s long-term (which is something I think happens through prolonged reinforcement of my shortcomings).
Been wanting a place to spout off a bit. Finally working on it. Now to finish the darn thing. More to come…stay tuned.
…that I own that I’m a writer.
…that I start sharing more of myself.
…that I publish about my interests.
…that I create a new space for conversations.
…that I blog on more topics.
…that I create a platform to do all this…and more.
That’s what dawudmiracle.com is going to be about.
From here forward, this site will be everything Dawud – spirituality, family, personal growth, fatherhood, music, economics, climate – basically all the ‘other stuff’ I do aside from being a business owner.
So let’s get started…after all, it’s about time.
