What is Ego without balance? Pretension.
This is a thought that I’ve been kicking around lately. It’s been through the most intimate places of self and environment. I’ve seen it present in people I thought I could I count on when the chips are down. Not that I should put all my faith into the capabilities of man but I see the effect of people who operate with the sort of personal impunity and delusion of self that can be overwhelmingly larger than life. I think somehow it is the responsibility of our peers to ensure we operate within rational logic and reasoning through the liberal administration of humble pie. It may suck to hit rock bottom but it serves as a means to have something to ultimately work towards. An improvement of self on a level playing field, if I dare say.
Thought of the Day
Sometimes it is not a matter of skill that keeps us sharper than steel or more focused than that of an eagle. It is the world we live in, it is the probability for operating in life without any conceivable measure of outcomes. Other than the black and white of success and failure.
Sometimes for all of our good intentions we find ourselves outwitted by the gremlins that seemingly and invisibly so that come into our lives and turn it Topsy-turvy. An immediate challenge to the control we once held on the situation and a challenge that isn’t always met head on, since success can seem so near when we’re falling away from it.
Let this be a cautionary sort of deal that when it seems too good to be true, pinch yourself. Make sure you’re not dreaming and if you aren’t then be warned there’s more to complacency that meets the eye.
We as people don’t like to think of ourselves as something so easily replaceable or upgradable like electronics. For those who think about it a bit deeply – it’s disconcerting and distressing to find out one has been phased out by a person or group of peers as if they were thought to be obsolete. Some folks just get indignant, start acting out and rightly so. Our time on this globe is limited we’re not toasters, TVs or Cellphones. So while we’re here let’s not treat each other as such.
The moral of the quote is, “Be grateful for who you have in your life today because they might not be in it tomorrow.”

On occasion I do art. My apologies on the quality of the picture but cellphone cameras are not always the win.
