Some of us in the world are just naturally givers. It’s somehow part of our DNA and we can’t help ourselves. Many of us are also optimists and can always find the good in any situation. We are, essentially, the wind beneath humanity’s wings. We create a more intellectual, spiritual and beautiful world. Also, we tend to be incredibly humble. We do not gloat about our contributions nor take credit for making this a better planet to live on.
Then, of course, there are the takers. These are the people that always look for what is wrong with something rather than what is right. i can think of several people, for instance, that are more interested in correcting my grammar or spelling rather than soaking in the beauty and depth of the messages I share with you all. These are the same folks that would say to Gandhi, “Yeah, you seem like a nice guy but you sure are skinny”.
These are also the same folks that would look at the painting above and say, “Gee, Mike…I mean it’s a nice painting and everything but doesn’t the guy on the left kind of have a small ding-ding?”
I am telling you. There is simply no pleasing some people! So, instead of attacking my “art”, why not contribute to the process instead of sucking the life out of it? I get it, once or twice in 110 or so posts, I might have misspelled a word. But, instead of focusing on that, why not focus on the number of lives that have been saved by reading this blog. Isn’t that more important?
Ok, maybe saving lives is a tad too much hyperbole but I know I have saved marriages and helped people earn millions. Again, i hate to have to brag but I need to defend those of us that make the world a better place to live in. We are basically walking sunshine, wrapped in puppy fur, smelling (like Sarah Palin) of fresh baked cookies. Stop harshing our mellow!!!
Thank you for your time. Yours, every so humbly,
