The “not so secret” Secret

I’ve been absent in my writing lately. Mostly because we’ve had so much going on. Moving to Hawaii to chase your dreams, is all fine, beautiful, amazing and dandy. But it sure is exhausting! Needless to say, it’s been a growing experience to say the least. Anyway, since I haven’t been around to write lately, I wanted to share a fellow blogger’s post. It is beautifully written! I mean, come on guys, this stuff just makes sense. Life is short. You’ve gotta do what you love. Be happy. Don’t sweat the small stuff. It’s only cliche because year after year people have been saying the same things over and over. WAKE UP AND LISTEN! The answers are right in front of you. It’s like the everyone is wearing drunk goggles. If we all just calmed the waters and paid attention, the truth, the way and light to true happiness are glaringly obvious.

The Better Man Project ™

It’s not about catching up with the world, it’s about creating a life full of love and passion and having the world catch up with you. The times of having to mold ourselves into someone or something we aren’t are long gone – in fact, this may be one of the greatest lies of humanity. The belief that you have to fit in to lead a worthwhile life is a facade that shades your eyes from the truth. In many cases, it may feel that you have to be the cool person in order to gain the respect and appreciation of others, but let me tell you from personal experience – if you go out into the world, declare your purpose, and do something really ridiculously cool with your life, people will take notice and give you real respect. Respect for doing what you love and bring new ideas into…

I’d rather be poor

Poor is a relative term.

It’s ironic really, what society has turned into.

Have you ever been to a low income community. Everyone is always outside. Adults are listening to music, barbecuing and watching the kids play at the park. Kids are outside with other kids and bikes and dogs – not inside glued to their flat screens and ps3s.

Then you go to the middle and upper class neighborhoods. Occasionally you’ll find someone outside washing their car, but no community BBQs, no kids riding their bikes. Maybe an occasional house mom running with the kids in the stroller.

These aren’t stereotypes people – this is the reality of the world we live in, don’t believe me? Go check out these neighborhoods for yourself. I dare you, go above and beyond just looking around. Trying stopping by and joining either one of those communities – assuming you can find anyone in the upper class neighborhoods to talk to.

Where do you think you’ll be more
welcome?

I live in a middle class neighborhood and I’ve seen maybe 3 kids out on their bikes since I moved here 6 months ago. Do I want to be social and get to know my neighbors? Absolutely! We are meant to help each other survive, to learn, to grow together – yet we hide from each other.

When did society take this turn for the worst? And how do we get back to our true nature of love and selflessness?

My only suggestion is one step at a time. One day at a time. One smile at a time. One hug at a time.

You could even start with something as simple as “Hello”
