Random topic of the day for Friday, January 20, 2017 is “Words I want to share with others.” Hmmmm…is that not the entire exercise of writing a blog? I guess for some writing a blog has many different meanings or at least their intent behind writing them is different but as my tagline on my blog says, “Creative expression through the written word” is my focus for my blogging.
It’s about me writing because I love writing. Its about me finding a way to express the thoughts and opinions that roll around in my head that I pretty much keep to myself among family and friends. Its about me learning about myself and acknowledging the life lessons as they come in a verbal format.
Do I think I am some super wise person that has some incredible insight to share with the world? No. Do I think there is something special about my thought processes or my way of communicating? No. So, what words do I want others to know?
Here it is in a small nutshell: I AM.
I am no more than my fellow-man and I am no less than them either. I am the teacher and the student. The lover and the fighter. The friend and the foe. I am an individual but I am also part of the all. I am equal to the worst in humanity and the best in humanity. I AM. But here is my secret and I gladly share it with you…..I AM but so are you! I own my identity but I see you and I choose to embrace you as the ALL too.
I think that is the thing people forget. They have a choice on how they choose to see things. It’s all a matter of perspective.
