Obvious to You. Amazing to Others.

This is a must-see, 2-minute video, if you ever doubt how remarkable you are.  Yes, YOU!  You fill a niche no one else can.  Don’t believe me?  Watch this, and I think you’ll begin to see…

    I have often wondered why I blog. I’ve tried to explain it to myself, and even to the readers of my blog, but it never felt quite right….never a satisfactory explanation. Perhaps it was because I was drawn to teaching, being one who attempts to educate people. I still have no adequate answer. This little video gives me something to chew on. Perhaps it’s right. I just need to put my thoughts out there for others to read and think about. Let them judge the worth of my words. I’ll just keep writing…

      Thing is, you reach more people than you think. I think the same thing goes for imagining you have nothing important to say, when you do. Everything you think might be slightly different than what your readers have been used to…just enough to let them see the issue (or topic) in a new light. And that’s splendid, I say! Keep up the good work, Don! 🙂

      I knew you would. You have your own incredibleness, and you don’t even know it! xo

The quote I live by

Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day.
--Rainer Maria Rilke in Letters to a Young Poet
