Good Afternoon Miss Blog,
Wow, lots of emotions coming to the surface. The subconscious mind is very intriguing.
I have made this week my mission to speak with people I barely know and ask them about humanity. One young lady told me of her having the struggles being half Caucasian and half Mexican. She was stating that she just really does not know where to fit in life. She looks more Mexican, but is thankful for her White last name. She stated her Mexican family she even feels out of touch. I spoke with an older gentleman who is African-American, he stated how his whole life he has been profiled. He is a very successful Man, well groomed, well dressed, pleasant personality but still is profiled by the color of his skin. I spoke with a hispanic man, I loved his outlook. He stated you either have goodness/ambition to be your best everyday or you don’t. He stated people have become so lazy and placing blame everywhere but themselves. I suppose I loved his outlook because it was much the same as mine. If you do not put in the work, do not expect payment; whatever that payment is for you. All three of these wonderful people had great outlooks on life, even with their challenges. They all take responsibility for how they want to live. I guess it all comes down to: we can take the challenge for our hero’s journey or we can play the victim. My question is why do so many choose to be victims? Lets embrace the journey, challenges, be our best selves everyday.
