Are You Happy?

Are you happy with the way you answered yesterday’s questions?

Lying in bed last night in this Albuquerque hotel room, listening to Mark Schultz on the headphones, my mind went racing.

Almost in a panic.

Mostly instigated from the two You Tube videos I posted two nights ago. Our son was four.

He’s closing in on ten.

Where did the time go?

What am I?

Who am I?

Am I happy?

Are You Aware?

How Many of You Are There?
How Many of You Are There?

Two really basic questions today:

  1. What are you?
  2. Who are you?

Which leads us to more questions.

How do you know?

How do you define yourself?

How do others define you?

Is there a difference?

Does it even matter?

I Am Aggressively Unfancy

Honeymoon On Bikes

Do you know who you are?  Do your loved ones know?  Could they describe you the way you hope?

Aggressively Unfancy.

Working for a Fortune 100 company in Central Florida for 27 years, I’ve grown accustomed to wearing suits, ties and shiny shoes.

When not at work, cut-off jeans, no shirt, no shoes is more of my style.

Jimmy Buffett or Z88.3 playing in the background.

My car is 21 years old, while those around my community drive new, upscale vehicles.

Our Honeymoon cost less than $200, for 2.5 weeks.

I color my hair, slowly. Gray.

I do a lot of other important things that nobody sees. Like starting each day on my knees.

Or pausing to pray every time we hear a siren.

While others read good books, I’m busy writing them.

I am inspired to be a Husband and a Father, and, um, one more thing – I’m aggressively unfancy.

Pushy Is As Pushy Does

Want A Push?
Want A Push?

Pushy people have an agenda, don’t they?

Pushy people want to get ahead, or be first, or take credit, or make others look bad.

Pushy people also think everyone else should know what’s going on and if you don’t, pushy people will find a way to make you uncomfortable.

Why is that?

(pause…)

Or maybe we (society) have it all wrong.

Maybe pushy people are a gift.

Maybe pushy people aren’t in it for the reasons we think they are.

Maybe we are ignorant and ineffective, for not recognizing what a pushy person brings to the table.

One thing for certain, I am sure of my uncertainty.

You're A Hoser, Eh?

Humans hate pushy people.

But we’d be lost without them, wouldn’t we?

I mean, without pushy people, what would humans talk and gossip about? And who would they blame and judge, if not for pushy people?

Pushy people, in general, are obnoxious, self-centered (it seems), and egotistical. Just to name a few.

However, there’s something special about pushy people.

And most never come to realize the gift pushy people bring to our lives.

And right now you’re probably saying, “What the heck are you talking about?”

And don’t you hate when pushy people just leave you hanging?
