Moxie under construction... come back tomorrow for a full update!

MOXIE - The ability to face difficulty with spirit and courage; vigor; verve; pep.

 Moxie under construction... come back tomorrow for a full update!

Uggg!! I was really trying to avoid this delay but ah well, life happens! Just to fill you in a bit, I am headed to Hawaii for almost two weeks and I am furiously trying to set the blog up to run without me. I thought about suspending the blog while I was on vacation but that will put my whole 52 week plan off kilter... not necessarily a problem but I just don't want to do it! I feel the Bliss Game can, should be able to be played while I am on vacation... I just may have to blog a bit differently (before and after the fact rather then during!) about the experience.

After my two weeks in Hawaii I will be getting ready for the Christmas holiday which will include a one week trip to my mother's internetless home so realistically the entire month of December needs to run on semi-automatic! Please be assured that for each week of the game coming up I will have my usual Bliss Initiative filled first post and I will be providing my inital thoughts on the weekly topic. What may be missing is my daily updates on how I am doing. Instead, I will be offering Guest posts on the different virtues and I will offer my observations at some point in the future. I think that those of you who are playing the game along with me will still find plenty of inspiration for your own games.

I will do my best to keep the flow as logical and easy to follow as possible. Please keep in mind that if you comment, it could be as much as a couple of weeks before I am able to get back to you. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

I wish everyone an Outrageously Joyful Holiday Season!

Ben Franklin's 13 Virtues

  • 1. TEMPERANCE - Eat not to dullness; drink not to elevation.
  • 2. SILENCE - Speak not what may benefit others or yourself; avoid trifling conversation.
  • 3. ORDER - Let all your things have their places; let each part of your business have its time.
  • 4. RESOLUTION - Resolve to perform what you ought; perform without fail what you resolve.
  • 5. FRUGALITY - Make no expense but to do good to others or yourself; i.e. waste nothing.
  • 6. INDUSTRY - Lose no time; be always employ'd in something useful; cut off all unnecessary actions.
  • 7. SINCERITY - Use no hurtful deceit; think innocently and justly, and if you speak, speak accordingly.
  • 8. JUSTICE - Wrong none by doing injuries, or omitting the benefits that are your duty.
  • 9. MODERATION - Avoid extreams; forbear resenting injuries so much as you think they deserve.
  • 10. CLEANLINESS - Tolerate no uncleanliness in body, cloaths or habitation.
  • 11. TRANQUILITY - Be not disturbed at trifles, or at accidents common or unavoidable.
  • 12. CHASTITY - Rarely use venery but for health or offspring, never to dullness, weakness, or to the injury of your own or another's peace or reputation.
  • 13. HUMILITY - Imitate Jesus and Socrates.
