I'm as important as Oprah!
Today, I remembered...
I'm as important as Oprah.
And so are you.
What am I talking about? No less than what I see as one of the
central paradoxes of life -- that we are everything and nothing,
that every little thing and nothing we do is important.
Deliciously confusing, isn't it?
Oprah, as an example, makes a large, splashy impact on millions
of people. I love and admire her for this. However, I don't go in for
that sort of stuff myself. I write these little missives of mine and
have people report that my words were exactly what they needed to
read at a specific point in their life. Similar scenarios play out for
us when we comfort a friend or family member.
I don't have millions or billions of dollars to give to assist my fellow
humans. But, I donate every month to an organization called Modest
Needs to help people over some of the bumpier spots in their roads.
Here's what I believe is important -- each of us doing what we can
with what we've got right now to make life better for all of us.
