If I were a fly on the wall,
I’d be grateful
to be on the wall
and not in that
huge pile of dog shit down there!
Look around! Appreciate the beauty, the smiles, and even the Spirit of Christmas outside of retail. It seems that there is a movement today, at least here in America, from many different aspects to look for (and sometimes create) a very negatively based existence. Stop! Smell the roses, not the dog shit. Life is not fair, never was, never will be.
I believe that we are at a turning point in history where we are teaching children to have a victim mentality rather than be hopeful. People are wearing themselves out worrying about trivial little issues that actually do not make us more aware of the suffering of others, but overwhelm us to the point where were can’t see real suffering due to the vast ocean of pettiness before us.
Let’s be grateful to be on a wall (for now) and love the view.
There will be enough time for (real) shit to deal with.
Please don’t be offended if you are going through your own personal pile of shit right now. My hope is that if the world would stop obsessing over the small stuff, so that your big stuff will actually be seen.
Enjoying the Adventure,
