2014 is winding down. How was your year? I always look bad at Cline Eastwood referencing “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” to describe my life. Some view that as a 2/3’s negative statement but really ugly is self defined. Sometimes it might be bad. Sometimes it might be good. Life isn’t always pretty. But when you finish well…even with the lack of style points making it a little ugly…you succeed.
I drove thousands of miles and even flew thousands near the end of 2013 in search of something. In life we get caught up on that “it” component to make us rich, famous and happy. “If I just had ((insert word)) then my life would take off.”
Consider one of my favorite actors and likely one you also appreciate: Robin Williams.
Sure he played “characters” but he also inspired. He was rich, famous and I do think happy although he struggled with mental illness. The “it” fact alluded him. Or did it? Maybe there really, truly is no such thing. Maybe just maybe that “it” is really “you!”
What if really we are just tricking ourselves about our own existence? What if we really did believe in ourselves? What would happen if you suddenly believe you had all the tools in the world to be a success in life. What if what you needed was more really a different perspective? Maybe a blue or red pill if you will:
Time to unplug friends. It is time to move beyond the shackles of our own self tyranny and move forward with a perspective of truth: we are enough!
I finished well. I held on to hope, love. God Bless and Happy New Year!
