it’s a really nice feeling to have someone in my corner. i have worked hard in my career, learning all that i can – more than has been required for whatever position i held…. and i think that maybe, just maybe, it is beginning to pay off a bit. i have received many compliments in the past few weeks and it feels good. now i realize that this isn’t how it’s supposed to be. compliments are sentiments of another person, and while nice to hear, they really hold no value. true, they can make me feel good, they can motivate me in some areas, they pump up my ego…. but the ego is precisely what this is about. the ego…. i wish i knew how to explain in a way that was easy why it is detrimental to place value in the ego. but i haven’t gotten to the point that i can really describe it, using the right words. i only know that the ego is not real. it is not who we are. it is not what we will become. instead, i would rather place value in work, selfless acts of compassion, helping others where needed. this is all confusing as i sit here and try to type it out, but in my heart i understand it. i apologize for the rambling ideas. one of these days, if keep at this, i will be able to fully describe what it is i mean to say…..bear with me!
in the meantime, happy wednesday!! and don’t forget to change your clocks sunday morning…time to spring forward already!
