To many fans disbelief, Family guy killed off Brian the family dog last night. For some reason, I feel like they mean it. Excuse me, I think I may need to talk to my shrink about this.
It is so incredibly easy to lose ourselves in the ideology that we don't matter individually. The road to being unique is not an easy one. Far easier would be to just go with the pack and do as you are told. If you look at history though, it was the road blazers that are most remembered. The ones who sometimes went hungry and never saw the reward of their accomplishments until long after they left the planet. You matter, you are unique, and even though others may tell you to fall in line, it is ultimately up to you as to whether you do so.
In the words of Neil Gaimann, "Nobody gets to be you except you. Nobody has your point of view. Nobody gets to bring what you uniquely bring to the world except...you."
Be you my Friend,
Once upon time, a new beau and I took a little trip to a community duck pond. While we were sitting by the pond a rather raggity-almost looked like he was from a Hollywood movie homeless man approached me, one eye had a cataract, but into my eyes he looked after startling me with a touch on my elbow. He extended his hand and said, "I found this, it deserves to be on a beautiful woman's wrist." He gave me a sterling silver cuff bracelet. I started to reach for my purse and he held up his hands and backed away. "No ma'am, its a gift for you, God bless you," and then he walked away. My beau said, "You'll remember that for the rest of your life." I had no idea how right he was at that moment, but I still have the bracelet, safe in my jewelry box to remind me that not all packages reveal their contents by their outside.
For a moment I thought this sounded an awful lot like REM's "Everybody Hurts" but Eddie Murphy brings out an emotional from the heart performance that is a far cry from his previous "Party All the Time" with Rick James. Have a listen, and smile. Its only temporary.
