People are tense. The long winter has come to an end at last, spring is somewhere just around the corner (though here in the ‘woods we are having a very wintry-like early taste of spring) and the news is full of the earthquake catastrophe in Japan. Some friends of Elizabeth’s who live in Japan say that the western media has lost all sense of ethics in its reporting of the catastrophe, though of course it is a catastrophe in anyone’s language.
One man’s meat is another man’s poison and all that.
But what I do see from my field is that some people are becoming more and more like garbage trucks (or dustbin lorry if you are more familiar with British English). They are having their own kind of melt-down. They run around full of frustrations and anger and dump their rubbish on all and sundry.
What a great way to improve life – dump it all on your family, friends and even your pets. Not.
“Character building begins in our infancy and continues until death.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
People who dump their rubbish on you are thoughtless and rude.
Do not become a dumping ground for other people’s rubbish. Move on, Retain your own equilibrium and self-esteem. If you can’t control something … well, you can’t control it so don’t focus on it. Focus on what you can control.
At the end of the day ask yourself these things:
- Did I live?
- Did I love?
- Did I matter?
Don’t let other people’s behaviour hold you back from living your life courageously doing what you love and making a difference.
Have the courage to assess and make changes to areas of your life that maybe aren’t running so smoothly.
“An unexamined life isn’t worth living.” Socrates
Enjoy your ride!
