People, Places and Things

by - November 11, 2011

The people we surround ourselves with.
I suppose it is a good idea to evaluate the people that you keep closest to you. Those that you would go above and beyond for. Maybe, one should consider if these same people would do the same for you. Are these people like you? What does their presence in your life mean? Are they helping you, hurting hurt, or having no effect at all.

The places we go.
We make the choice of where to go on any given day, or in life in general. Let's suppose you plan to go to Wal-Mart, and you know that you have to catch the number 7 bus to get there. You make your way to the bus stop, ride the bus and arrive at your destination. If only arriving at your life's destination could be as simple.

Where are the people in your life going and where are you going with them? Are they leaving you behind, holding you back, or neither?

The things that we do.
What are the things that we do in life that hinder us? The things that lead to our success? Things that make us happy or sad? What makes us cry or laugh? Or, even more interesting, how do we balance everything in our lives so that we can reach an equilibrium? A place in our lives where we are as happy as we need to be, and endure enough sadness to know that we're still in the world and it's all real.

I have a lot of questions, and a lot on my mind tonight.
