The human psyche continues to evolve throughout our lifetime. Which makes life fairly complex. What seems right today will seem entirely wrong tomorrow. And the people we consider our friends, our family, our lovers, are all just people. Disappointment is bound to occur.
But sometimes, an unexpected friend makes an appearance. That person may help you through a difficulty, or perhaps even protect you from yourself. Maybe the gift is simply letting you know that someone else on the planet is thinking of you, across land and sea, over a 7-hour flight away....
Those unique individuals help keep us all going. Because even Madonna feels alone once in a while. You may look like you're at the top of your game, and maybe you are, but on the inside fear of failure and feelings of rejection run rampant. The cure? Human contact. Another person reaching out and saying, "Hey, I care about you." When it happens, it feels a bit like a miracle. For all I know, it may be. Whatever the reason, it's wonderful. And welcome.
So this short essay is in gratitude for all the lovely people out there who make a difference just by being in the right place at the right time. It can be any one of us. We are all miracles waiting to happen. You may have already been that person for someone else. And you will be again. So will I.
To the now over 325,000+ people who read my blog, visit my site, buy my books, and take the time to see me at Comic Con, THANK YOU! You are my miracle. You, and a few special friends, make life worth living. Every. Single. Day.
In the words of the scholar, author, and teacher, Joseph Campbell, "Follow your bliss." For when you do, you will put yourself on the path to not only helping yourself, but helping others, too.
And that is the very definition of greatness....
