Individual self worth
Throughout everyone’s life we seek some form of reinforcement that says our life has meaning. Whether it is love from our children or life’s partner, a sense of achievement in our work, or the gratifying experience we achieve from a random accomplishment, these results enhance our lives and make them that much more satisfying.
Even when one lives outside the norms of society like I do, it does give me a sense of self worth when I listen to talk show personalities and they are re-iterating some of the very thoughts and words expressed on this blog. I write, not to gain attention or garner followers, but to release some of the pent up frustration from observing the situation in our country and around the world. If not for this metaphoric ability to open my window and shout at the world, I would only have myself to vent too and I am not yet crazy enough for that.
Last week I heard Glenn Beck talking about the loss of our nations moral compass and how the US is turning upside down when it comes to the rights of the people as a whole, (as in the New American Reality posting). Then this afternoon it was Lura Ingram who echoed my sentiments about the United States heading down the path to becoming a third world power, by stripping the military and trying to bluster and bluff our Presidents will onto other nations. There have been others repeating the words printed on this blog, but these two recent ones stand out in my mind. It not only gives me the satisfaction that I am not alone in my thoughts but reinforces the idea that just maybe these are not just the ramblings of an old man in the woods.
And more importantly it is you my readers who lift my spirits
when I see that you often return to read the latest posting.
I indeed hope that over time you are rewarded with a golden nugget
of humor or thought worthy of your time.
