Firstly, thank you so much your comments and messages. They mean a lot to me. I thrive off the thought that I'm connecting with people. Maybe social networking is turning me into an attention-seeking teen blogger who thinks what she had for lunch is going to rock someone's world, but I don't think I'll ever get to that point. Honest to blog.
I kind of have this outlook that might sound a little like I'm being a downer or not reaching for the stars, but I'm actually a very optimistic person. But I'm also realistic. So, think about a person about whom most everyone in the world has heard of since his or her time on this earth. Shakespeare's a good guess. But think about it. What did he do? He wrote some plays (granted, most were some incredible works with insurmountable literary merit), but what he did was one in a gazillion-bajillion(hover).. That's a lot, homes.
What does this have to do with my outlook? I would like to say that I do not wish to establish myself as world-renowned or a household name. But I would like to make people think about things and to live deliberately, not passively, and in the processes, teach myself to do the same. Afterall, if I had already mastered these things, what fun would it be to read a bunch of sermons of a self-proclaimed life guru?
And now, I step down from my soap box (hover) and ask that you take a look at (and participate in) this poll I made. I'm just curious about the results.
My head is about to crash onto a pillow and I'm going to have bizarre dreams that I won't remember in the morning. Hurray.
