7 P's Meme

I was tagged by bundle-o-contradictions for the 7P's meme. I have to admit that I forgot about it and thought it was time to get it done. So here go's it.

Passion An interesting one. I have passions for different things. The one thing I will write about here is my passion for model railroading. I don't yet have a place to run my trains, but I would love to in the future.

Purpose I feel my purpose in this life is to provide and protect my wife Barb. It may be a silly thing to some, but I do take it seriously. After all, I made the choice to marry her :)

Pursuit Another interesting one. I think in life we all pursue things and I am still pursuing myself. At the present, I would say that I am pursuing an actual home for Barb and I to have. One that we can call our own and do as we please in it. As for living in an apartment, it's all nice until you want to do things like leave your dog outside for more than a few minutes and there isn't much you can do such as growing a garden or things like that.

Position A few things come to mind when I think of this one. As far as work goes, I am in a good position. I currently have been chosen for being the one who helps with the new line balancing task and teaching and helping others do the new tasks that are associated with this. Also, in life, I think I'm in a good position as far as things go. I hope to be( as in the last "P" paragraph) position to buy our first house together in the near future.

Pummeling About the only thing that really comes to mind is the pummeling, financially and emotionally, that came with a divorce in 2001. Not as much emotionally as the marriage was over, but financially speaking, from having to pay some pretty high child support payments from a mistake that the Friend of the Court had made. It made living somewhat difficult at times.

Progress The thing I think about for this is the progress I have made in as far as travelling has gone. Before I met Skittles, I had been to 8 states. Since then I progressed to having been to 37 of them. Wooo Hooo! And it has been in these travels that I have had some of the best times in my life and seen some of the most wonderful things I have ever seen.

Personality I think I have a pretty good personality. I have a decent sense of humor and think I'm kind to others. I guess the most telling thing about my personality is that my grandchildren love me. I've always thought that little ones know who loves them without anyone having to tell them that.

Well, I hope I did a good job on this meme. It's just my thoughts on these words and what they mean to me.
