Motives and objectives
My motives from day one have been sincere and genuine, intentionally transparent. Priority #1 has been self-improvement. Setting goals and objectives for that has been a sequence of dynamic benchmarks of improvement, beginning with emotional balance and continuous work to identify and achieve new benchmarks for improvement. The objectives after self-improvement are secondary, contingent on achieving and maintaining self-improvement. Re-connecting with my kids, early release and/or home confinement, and other objectives all rely on self-improvement. Progress and growth lends itself to seeking more progress and growth in my case.
I don’t have or harbor any ulterior motives, period, plain and simple. I’m diligent and very intentional about discretion and mindful to ensure that I am not inflicting added pain, sorrow, or grief. I appreciate that there are critics, opponents, and skeptics. I can only control what I do, how I do it, and whatever interpretations or perceptions others take from it are beyond my control. My accepted role and responsibility is to constructive and productive steps towards “new me”, and as long as I’m doing that correctly I accept that I’ve done what I can and the chips will fall where they fall.
Humble and grateful.
