Since the end of October to now, I have been on a mission. And, in so doing I had to pick a pace that would allow me to delegate or out source to others and in so doing reducing the wear and tear on me. Being in charge of one team is good, being an advisor to two others which are much larger is just as easy because of the assurances I gotten that the work would be spread out to other members of the teams, thereby letting me sit back and relax more and not be so stressed out.
Being able to monitor what goes on up on the front lines and behind the scenes gives me more control and a much better understanding of how everything fits together for a common purpose and that’s to win the war against cancer. With some other projects already on the drawing board and one having to be put on hold for a bit, I am amazed that I am actually enjoying what I’m doing now and to see the progress unfold before me, long before the up coming relay season starts in March 2016.
Planting a seed and watch it grow and then blossom into a beautiful flower as a result of working together, I have come to really appreciate more what I have been given. And that is the chance to help make a difference, to seeing ideas come to life and fulfill a dream.
I was on the Public Test Realm last night and decided this guy I had to try him out! He has every convience I need for my travels through all of Azeroth and has all the comforts of home packed on him. Poor feller, I don’t know how he holds up but believe me, he’s strong as an Ox!
The coming weekend will mark three years when I got hit with cancer, and the ensuing battle I had from the word go. Hafta tell ya, it’s not always easy even after being declared in remission because of after effects that still comes and goes. Tingling sensations in my hands and feet,running to the bathroom and hope you make it in time, simple house hold chores like laundry and dish washing, or sweeping the floor. Or on a pretty cool fall day just to get out for some fresh air.
Even getting up in the middle of the night, throw on a jacket and just step out the door and look into the universe. You stand there in awe, and wonder. Back on the ground tho you realize that you’ve been blessed, you take in all that you can to make use of the time you have been given, to encourage, to be there for someone traveling the path I written about.
Three years is a flash, so bright you get blinded and yet still see a mission set before you. My Higher Power gave me a mission yet to complete, and believe me it will be done in time.
As anybody can tell you if you’re like me a hard core gamer, sometimes there comes a period of months that just goes without any further content being added until the next expansion comes out late next year. I made the decision the other day to finally just cancel my World of Warcraft account because of that very reason. It doesn’t do me or anybody else any good to keep paying for something that won’t get anymore content or whatever and my time is also too priceless to waste as is. Even if it did cost me more than what I been able to do it just wasn’t worth to keep on paying for something I won’t do until then.
I got enough work in Second Life to keep me busy for months down the road and it doesn’t cost me a thing. Soooooooooooo, lots to do besides creating chaos and mayhem elsewhere……..
As I had mentioned in another writing I gone to the Fallen Gods store in Selimdor, and there just went nuts looking at some really beautiful outfits and other accessories including Petite Avatars. As I had explained earlier when I put my petite avie together I was very very careful in reading the instructions provided on a note card. I f you didn’t do exactly as the card said you could really mess up and would had to start all over again and do exactly the order it called for.
In the end when I first did this the results as you already seen were such I literally cried tears of joy, seeing what I had transformed into!I had put together a few outfits much like this one and one outfit has wings! Another outfit which is for full sized avies I also was very careful to put it together as well, same steps and the end result is like this one;I hafta tell ya, I was just simply floored and amazed at what I had now after all these years, discovered my true self in a whole new light and believe me it shows. So onwards on my new path of self discovery is gonna be a lot of merriment, chaos and mayhem!
Sometimes I wonder why I ever get pulled into some of the things I do, and not by force either. It’s just that sometimes I get asked to either be a part or even lead a meeting, and honestly I really enjoy being a part of a bigger picture. It gives me a much better understanding on how different organizations are runned and allows me to peek into the inner workings of how a group operates.
It gives me an advantage I never had learned even from being a leader in other places online, but the experiences I gained have helped me a lot to a better understanding over all. Even the most minute details can uncover alot, especially when you are looking over a canidate for for a position of high exposure.
I say this with the understanding that with details sometimes can throw out red flags on someone who isn’t being quite open and honest in their interview. I saw this first hand today even during one such interview and we were discussing a person’s background and in respect I won’t say anymore.
In my own past elsewhere especially when I used to play Eveonline I went thru rigorous interviews before I was accepted as a space pirate because of requirements I had to meet as well. But even then I learned a lot from that in having over two hundred people under my command as an officer in an European group in the end, such fun that was. Being responsible for that many at one time, especially during combat.
So, to me meetings are such an important part of even my role as team captain for my relay team, and having leadership skills as a result of meetings and taking notes made me a better leader for tomorrow and beyond.
