September 30, 2013
In the attempt to appear right sometimes we miss the obvious. For some reason to be deemed wrong on a particular topic is taken as a kind of blotch on the soul. But admittance to a lack of knowledge is a step towards new understanding. Being right all the time is impossible, but growing through error is always a possibility if the culprit is attempting to feed the intellect and not the ego.

The only thing I’m sure of is nothing is guaranteed. Realizing this one certainty, I don’t put things off. I’m going to read that book. I’m going to take that trip. I’m going to give that homeless person my extra change. I’m going to exercise. I’m going to be kind. And finally, I’m going to fight wrong where I experience it. Every day is a gift and I plan on doing something with it, for it and about it.

Yes, I’m determined. But not in a typical gotta-have-everything kind of way, no. I’m determined to leave footprints that are always headed towards growth. I’m not running after anything, but I am walking in the direction of the sunshine of a fulfilling life, where my smile is enhanced by the smiles I create.
