Easy to mistaken that we are the center of the universe as I welcomed the month of May this week. The warming weather and seasonal transition here in Washington D.C. is opposite of those in the Southern Hemisphere. A phenomena that continues to amaze me. Maybe a trip there will help me cement the fact.
A few other facts of life included patience (or lack of), inertia to change, and our insatiable appetite for pushing the limits. Life is such a wonderful gift. It offers abundant opportunities to quench one’s thirst for knowledge especially with social media as an enabler.
Two examples on such learning I shared were how to tell one’s life story and letting go. Socrates said, “the unexamined life is not worth living.” While a bit harsh, Socrates does have a point about reflecting on our own experience. Life is what you make of it. So why not being more grounded to make the best of it.
Have a good week.
