So I know its been a while since I last wrote but I’ve had a few things putting a hold on things at home these last few weeks that needed my undivided attention and though the problems have not cease to exist I have become aware that things are very much out of my hands and that I must sit idly by and see how things unfold. I have not been in such circumstances for some time now, I would have to say since around the time I was a developing adolescent, and I am reminded of how insignificant we are in the whole spectrum of things that can happen. I don’t like it.
They say every man desires power and riches and once either is attained they only want more. I can honestly say that I am happy with the enrichment of my surroundings and would only hope that it can build and collect at the same pace it has been. I have no knowledge of wanting power even though I have never had a position, but I do see a benefit of having influence and a shared respect of those who have amassed a certain seating for themselves. Think of this as “Power through Peers”. And I know influence leads to power but I could only hope that any power I may take up does not leave me only wanting more.
It seems I have more to work for than just a paycheck in this life and I need to figure out exactly what it is, Influence? Power? a Title or Position? a Legacy? This seems like a question I need to find the answer for myself and if your reading this maybe you need to ask yourself the same thing, is your life only worth a paycheck?
