When You Stop and Think About It

Have you ever read something that’s going viral that you agree with completely and then you can’t get it out of your head? Not because it was any new concept or trans formative thought, but because you’re suddenly struck by the notion that it isn’t common sense to the mass populace. You realize that the way you try to live your life is foreign to others. Somehow you’ve become the anomaly. Selfishness has taken the place of selfishness everywhere like an epidemic.

Then everywhere you look, there are reminders of this fact and you wonder how you never saw it before. Then you grow increasingly concerned about others because of this realization and you wonder if maybe a small voice in the mass void can make a difference.

Then you realize that by nature of the fact that the aforementioned viral piece went viral, one lone voice already has. Then you realize that if that voice called to the masses, maybe yours can too.

Then you sit down and write the circular reasoning down and send it out into the void so maybe someone else can come to the same conclusion and stop and write or speak up or sing or do whatever it is they do. Then maybe one voice will become two voices or one hundred or one thousand or one million. Then maybe the collective voices will proclaim in unison that there is a better way.

Give of yourself. Make a difference.

“Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don’t really matter.” Francis Chan

  1. I put it on my facebook, on twitter, and emailed this to friends.
    Absolutely sums up my greatest fear, but like you I often feel out of sync with most of the world.
    Love your blog, thanks for all you share. Haven’t been able to read even my favorites blogs for a while, computer problems and life chaos. I am so glad I got to read this on my facebook.

    • Thank you so much for your kinds words Eileen! I realized I never responded to your question about whether there was anywhere online to hear our music. My apologies. Thank you, however, for making me realize that every video I had online, I took down. I need to get busy putting more music out there. 🙂 Sending prayers for quick resolution to your computer issues. It is awful to be disconnected.
