A blog penned to myself...
You may find this hard to believe, but you have chosen to be average.
When we were babies, we were born with a completely clean slate. No preconceptions of what the world would be like. We saw the world with new eyes, everything was so interesting, so new, so exciting. The world we were born into was limitless. With each new experience, we learned. With each new touch, we felt a connection to others. With each new smile, we felt love.
I used to read the news right before I went to sleep and first thing in the morning when I woke up.
It was the perfect way to ruin my sleep or to start my day off on the wrong foot. For years, I thought that reading the news was important because I needed to be informed. If I wasn’t informed then I wasn’t relevant. I probably learnt that directly from the news media. I was wrong. They were wrong…Dead wrong.
Too many people go through life in a blur. It’s the ever constant rat race that we are in. Climbing the corporate ladder, pleasing others, buying material items to keep up with your friends. I know the exact feeling. But something changed in me a few years ago when I asked myself a simple question; at the end of my days…. will I have mattered?
