Do you ever get tired of looking at posts that talk about new beginnings, throw out the old, appreciate what you have, live for today. Their endless! People posting quotes about being a better person, enriched existence, spiritual connection.
How many people actually live what they post?
 We read a nice quote, get captured by inspirational words, read a touching story and for a brief moment we think,  "I'm going to live that way."
Two minutes later we go back to the norm.
That's not to say that there are not thousands of people who live by exceptional standards. They are the ones that mentor us to greatness, if we chose to follow their examples. People like Nelson Mandela, and Mother Teresa. They lived their words and so, if we are open to it, they inspire us to find the best in ourselves.

In the Box!

To be self absorbed is to live in a box of your making. Too consumed with the drama of your own life you fail to see that others walk difficult paths too. 
You miss the sun bursting into the sky early in the morning, you fail to see the beauty of the dew drops hanging precariously on the edge of  leaves, you miss the sweet sound of chirping birds as they greet a new day.

You listen but do not hear.
You see but do not observe.
You work but find no passion.
You breathe but do not inhale.
You smile but are hollow.
 You seek but never find.
You take for granted the gifts that lie before you and eventually, if and when you surface, they are gone.
