There are approximately 7.5 billion people on Earth. We all either were pushed out or cut out of a uterus. What makes anyone of us special? Of course, if I give my child a unique spelling of a name, that makes Mykuhl or Ashliegh very special. Of course we are all special. This is why we care about taking the selfie at the concert, vacation spot or at breakfast because we are all special. Take a look at all of our "friends" and "likes". I heard an interview with Duff McKagan (@DuffMcKagan), guitar player for Guns and Roses, and he mentioned that he really started to enjoy life when he wrote. He had specific deadlines to submit his articles. This forced him to be observant and reflect upon his life. I have may thoughts and I enjoy seeing the beauty of everyday life.
You know what...I'm not special. I'm just a husband, father, son, brother, uncle and a friend. I'm only special if I choose to be special. I could be special by finding a cure for cancer, randomly detailing my wife's car, playing catch with my older son, taking my younger son to his favorite comic book store, helping a student decide what college they should attend in the fall or smiling as I say "good morning" to an unsuspecting person at the grocery store. I've decided to take 15-20 minutes to write my thoughts and observations. By the way...you and I are still insignificant...unless we make a decide to make a difference in someone's life.
I am a husband, father, son, brother, uncle, friend and Biology professor. We are on this Earth for a limited amount of time. Let's think, laugh and love.
