Happiness begins where selfishness ends. Go out and do some good.
If your not already asleep or already bored to tears and you have nothing better to do than read the egocentric utterances of a middle aged man then feel free to read my journal entry for today.
Thanksgiving Day 2012
Reflected on the dozen people who have made it possible for:
Me to enjoy life.
To not sink into the abyss when I feel that there are dozens of "serious" problems that are weighing me down and that need to be solved by me and me alone- of course I need to solve all of them by myself and by 11:35 today.
That validate me when the rest of the world either ignores me, rejects me or goes way out of their way to throw negativity towards me.
Other than these dozen people I know that no one else feels I'm very special and/or worthy of ten seconds of their daily thoughts.
Move through life with enthusiasm/zest/empowerment.
Makes me want to send weekly emails of famous people's quotes, write a journal or do good for others.
Perhaps I should spend one hour today telling these fabulous people:
That they are an integral part of my dozen.
Why they are part of my dozen-- and how they have helped me.
How they have personally helped me feel more serene and safe.
If I did that today then maybe that hour would be my life's finest hour.
On second thought, perhaps I'll do it tomorrow. After all I have alot to do today and I need to spend today (Thanksgiving Day) doing the appropriate tasks-- preparing and eating food and watching multiple football games.
Thank G-d that G-d is giving me tons of guidance and whispering in my ear.
