I need to speak to you's for a moment. (I have decided to start adding 's to words that don't really need them. Just so you know).
I have also decided that I am on a personal mission to be the best human being I can be. I am not speaking in Gandhi terms really...I haven't gone that global yet. Bet I have come across some people lately that appall me.
And I am not usually appalled. Well...I take that back.
I am appalled rather easily by the following;
And sometimes, when I see such things....let's take the last one for example...when someone is being a pompous ass and completely thinks they are the shit...and SPOUTS to a group of other's about how awesome they are...
my mouth literally drops.
Because while I confess to be a legend, it should be noted that it is only in my mind and I really just say it for giggles. I don't REALLY think I am all that special...or a model....or dancer. Well...maybe a model and dancer...
but I digress.
Have you ever come across someone so completely full of themselves with nothing to back it up? Or let me put it this way. So what if I have lost 170 (okay..FINE...less than that at this moment) pounds? If I am a horrible human being, if I am mean, condescending, grandstanding, and an asshole....it doesn't matter.
But what it boils down to...is I want to sometimes say to these people...I SEE YOU. I see the real you that is actually anything but what you portray. I see the real you that is clinging to certain things and blowing smoke up people's ass in hopes they don't see how ugly your insides are. I see the real you that despite all your puffing about...you really need a hug and you need to love yourself.
And then I try to think well maybe it is my job as a good human, to actually try and make a connection with these people. Maybe instead of being all catty and judgmental, I should try and see if I can get past their nonsense into the good.
Aw hell....but sometimes I dont wanna!
So I ask you....are you being a good human today?
I am trying to do a little more...maybe to make up for those who don't. I always say please and thank you, I always make eye contact, talk to strangers, look for ways to help...
but I can be better at it. I can do things that maybe make me a little uncomfortable. I can stretch myself a little more to meet my fellow humans with a little more compassion and love. I can open my mind, listen more, try to think before I speak.
I don't always succeed. But that's my campaign for right now.
