well, hi there!

It's cold and rainy in my neck of the woods today!  Cold, rainy days do not agree with me and my muscles.  I have been thinking lately about denial.  Sometimes I deny who I am.  Sure I would love the trophies of a Djokovic, Federer or Nadal, but I am no athletic specimen.  I will probably not break records or be well known.  I just simply write. Write words. That's all.  That is all.  I wonder if it's enough.  Do I need my name in a record book, or to be idolized?  No, but it crosses my mind.
What do you think?

  2. I hate to sound like a cliche, but I firmly believe in this quote:
    "To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world."

  3. I think we all have the notion of being in a record book somewhere at some time or other. But I have become content knowing that I am where God wants me to be and that's enough.

  4. I live in denial as well. I wonder if it has anything to do with being in a comfort zone? And writing is enough, you're a great writer =)

  5. It's nice to be able to identify ourselves with great accomplishments or the things that we like to. But at the end of the day, all of those things are just details to our main contribution:
    "Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” (Dr. Seuss)
    When I go to a funeral, they may mention what the individual achieved, but what is more talked about is who the person was. Do what you love and let yourself shine through it. But it looks like you already do :)

  6. I think as we get older we realise our limits but exercising still makes us feel well
