I am so tired. Yesterday — Day 4 — I was so tired I actually fell asleep on the bus and missed my stop by one on the way home!
Anyway, my celebration for the day was something I didn’t even think was a celebration until I got home that evening.
As you can see in this picture, I was really happy on my way to work. I was still flying high from finding out that my fiance was taking me to the Monkees concert in Los Angeles next month that I was just beaming most of the day. I was so happy, I was inspired to create a video sharing with those who follow me on Facebook how awesome my Christopher is! You can view it here.
Then I went about my day. I went to a software training. I did some work. I went through the usual motions of my day.
And then my fiance got home. Apparently, my cheer-leading on Facebook really moved him.
And that’s what I’m celebrating. I felt called to create that video, and even though some of my own fears tried to stop me, I did it any way. And in so doing, I made someone feel good about himself.
That’s the good stuff right there! I made a difference in the world, at least a little bit, by simply being me.
Yesterday’s quote stated that you have an obligation to be an individual. And I agree. I believe that not only do you need to express your true self for your own good — you’ll be so much happier if you do — but for the good of others. You were created as you are because of some purpose. You may not know what that purpose is. It may be big. It may be small. But if you don’t express who you really are, embrace you’re individuality, then you’ll never fulfill your purpose.
