What Seeds Are You Sending Into the Wind?

I’ve been thinking about resentment, jealousy, envy and their impact on happiness.  Also, all of the irony that surrounds the topic.

We all want to be happy.  Or at least we think we want to be happy.  We can’t decide sometimes, because the definition of what happiness is varies as much as the definition of beauty.  That’s where the whole thing gets even more complicated.

I guess the first thing you have to do is look at your life and see if there are things to be grateful for.  Then look at the world and see if there are things you can be happy for that are going well for others.  I am pretty sure that is a big part of growing happiness in your own garden and spreading seeds of joy for the gardens of others as well.

Potential

Today I’m thinking about potential.  My personal potential.  It’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day and I came across this quote by him.

If you can’t fly then run,
if you can’t run then walk,
if you can’t walk then crawl,
but whatever you do you have
to keep moving forward.

And it made me think about all of the things I allow to get in my way of personal success.  Not just business, but growth as a person.  And how excuses keep us from moving forward.  Also, baggage.
The man was a great thinker.  Cut down in the prime of his life by hate.
