Before I get started I want to make clear that this is not a political blog. But, one thing I would like to point out. There are currently people, mostly young people, in our government and elsewhere that seem to believe the universe began the day they were born. This is so absurd to me. How it relates to my blog is this; While I’m here trying to figure out life and how I fit in, where I belong, etc., these people are damn sure they know everything there is to know about everything. They especially know exactly who they are, where they’re going, and how they can save you… from yourself. Not only that, but they’re dead certain they know how to, get this, SAVE the PLANET. I don’t want to be anything like them. I just wish they had some sense of humility. It’s okay to know yourself so well you race through life with no doubts. Fine. But, to think you know what’s good for everyone else AND the universe is just plain insanity. And, it wouldn’t matter a rats ass to me except, through their blind confidence and arrogance, they only manage to make everything worse for the rest of us AND the world. It’s annoying.
So, I guess what I’m saying is, it’s okay… no, it’s better, WAY BETTER to be searching for truth and identity then to live on youthful ignorance to navigate life. For me then, it boils down to one word: Humility.
When I typed the title of this blog I had another thought that would turn into the “maybe more” portion. But I forgot what it was.
Again, politics is not what I’m here to write about. I’m here to write about a journey in discovery. I would add that when I was young I too thought the universe revolved around me. Now that I’m older I see how destructive that is. Both to myself and everyone around me. But, to be kind to myself, I think we all do it. I was lucky enough to have grown up, matured, found humility. Now, on to the next step in life…
