    • Michalyn Demaris’, PhD Program in Educational Leadership, PVAMU 13 Virtues of Selfishness William Allan Kritsonis, PhD - Professor
    • Philippians 4:8
      • Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
    • Virtues of Selfishness
      • The thirteen virtues of selfishness are related to my attitude towards daily activities and the challenges that exist in life. By utilizing these traits I have developed good personal character in achieving personal goals. These virtues have also assisted me in shaping my attitude towards people with whom I have dealings and assisted me in developing good social character traits.
    • Temperance
      • Eat not to dullness; drink not to elevation.
      • Since I am pregnant I decided to use this virtue towards improving my health. I was overweight at the beginning of my pregnancy and was worried about gestational diabetes. As a result, I had to watch the foods that I consumed and limit the amount of junk foods that I ingested in order to ensure that I did not get gestational diabetes. This week I limited my intake and did very good. I was able to develop a meal plan that I will follow my entire pregnancy.
        • Proverbs 23
        • When you sit to dine with a ruler, note well what is before you, and put a knife to your throat if you are given to gluttony. Do not crave his delicacies, for that food is deceptive.
    • Order
      • Let all your things have their places; let each part of your business have its time.
      • I continued to practice temperance this week and began to focus on a new virtue, order. Continuing to focus on my transition into motherhood I decided to clean up all of my affairs and get my house in order for the arrival of my baby. I decided to clean up my office and transition it into the baby’s nursery. I was successful in completing this project and also cleaned out my garage.
      • Deuteronomy 2:30 But Sihon king of Heshbon refused to let us pass through. For the LORD your God had made his spirit stubborn and his heart obstinate in order to give him into your hands, as he has now done.
    • Resolution
      • Resolve to perform what you ought; perform without fail what you resolve.
      • I continued to practice temperance and order this week and began to focus on a new virtue, resolution. This week I focused on preparing my life for motherhood. I spent time reading books in order to prepare myself for the big day. The most important thing about this week was that I was able to accomplish some of my plans for motherhood, which was a great enjoyable feeling.
      • Leviticus 12:6-8
      • When the days of her purification for a son or daughter are over, she is to bring to the priest at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting a year-old lamb for a burnt offering and a young pigeon or a dove for a sin offering. He shall offer them before the LORD to make atonement for her, and then she will be ceremonially clean from her flow of blood. These are the regulations for the woman who gives birth to a boy or a girl. If she cannot afford a lamb, she is to bring two doves or two young pigeons, one for a burnt offering and the other for a sin offering. In this way the priest will make atonement for her, and she will be clean.
    • Frugality
      • Make no expense but to do good to others or yourself; i.e., waste nothing.

      • I continued to practice temperance, order, resolution, and frugality this week and began to focus on a new virtue, moderation. This week I experienced a lot of discomfort with my pregnancy this week and tried not to complain too much about the pain. I worked on improving relations with my coworkers and family members.
      • Romans 2:6-8
      • God "will give to each person according to what he has done.“ To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life. But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger.
    • Industry
      • Lose no time; be always employed in something useful; cut off all unnecessary actions.
