Micro Entrepreneurism, Simple Living & Art

the Meat & Potatoes:

I think about stuff all the time. Abstract ideas and concepts that belong in open discussions and conversations. Ideas, philosophies, questions that need to be thrown out, argued, countered, challenged, defended and put into practice.

Our lives are our very own experiments… which can only become stronger, better, and closer to right, the more we are challenged. Challenge requires exposure, it requires risk. And as people, as humans, we must decide that the risk to stay the same is scarier then the risk that will force us to grow and change. It’s a lesson I know, and that I have repeated over and over and yet it is still so easy to lose sight of it. It is still so very easy to get caught up in the day to day safety of patterns and expectations. It’s way easier to say “I can’t” then it is to say “I can figure it out and I will” and follow through.

Attach this to a world in which it is so easy to connect with others and its a wonder how so many are still so utterly disconnected. Now we “know” a lot of people but we don’t know anything about each other. Maybe the strangers are the ones we need to be sharing with, they are the ones that don’t fit into the patterns and expectations. They are the unknowns that can still surprise us.
