Think of this as a pyramid, the top being my ideal, the bottom being the basic foundation I was born with. What you see is a blueprint to forging who I want to be, from what I have to work from (Personality traits) to picking my personal code and the final arbiter of my decisions. From there is what I value most, intangible and tangible. The code I decided to live by. Then the Mission Statement, this is the path I will take on my life’s journey. By accomplishing this one step at a time, I become Ronin. The ideal of self-mastery. Now of course I’m going to have to analyze all this which is produced by my own research, Shrapnel, TWIWC 2nd Ed. and Unchained starting this week. This is just a taste.
Living the life I want and loving myself for it. Becoming Ronin.
“si vis pacem, para bellum”
I will live life on my terms beyond the best of my ability, I will find a way. I will become a warrior supreme, the kind of husband my wife has always fantasized about, educate by example and patient answer while remembering I don’t have all the answers or even the best answers. By doing this I will be fucking awesome.
