After a full year off from blogging, it turns out that I didn’t need a break … what I needed was a focus.
Just as focusing solely on being happy won’t make you happy, focusing solely on creating a quality experience won’t deliver that experience. Happiness is a by-product of living life in sync with your core values. So is creating and delivering a quality experience. It is a lifestyle, not a destination.
It is the working man who is the happy man. It is the idle man who is the miserable man.” – Benjamin Franklin
My biases might initially lead me down the wrong path, but I’m not powerless. I can choose to take a different path.
Wouldn’t it be nice if the most important piece of a blog post right now was the content of the blog post itself?
It was as normal as any conversation I’ve ever heard. And not. As I walked by their yard, I smiled at the Dad. I said nothing, but I hope he could see in my face the joy I experienced in that moment. I hope he saw the feeling of inspiration in my smile, in my eyes. I have a feeling he has seen that look before.
