About the things that you concern yourself with, that you spend time worrying about and staying up late at night thinking, watching, reading and complaining about? Are you giving your attention to the people in your life that you love? Or frittering time away on activities that are getting you nowhere?
Are issues like race, gender equality, civil rights your M.O.? Or are abstract matters like art what make you tick? What gets the needle moving in your life?
Sports team got you down? Live to see another day.
Stood up in the name of love? Try again.
Job beating you down? Keep grinding and find what moves you.
Are you “being the change you want to see in the world,” like the great Mahatma Gandhi once said? Or are you simply full of sound and fury, signifying nothing, as William Shakespeare, the wise bard from England, once wrote?
Why do you care? Do you care? Or do you just think you care?
Are you typing and crashing away on the keyboard, metaphorically yelling at those with whom you disagree? Where is that getting you? It’s probably filling your mind with anger and discontent. When you get a minute to breathe, can you really focus on your breathing? Take a deep breath and start living.
We are what inspires us. We are the embodiment of that which touches and enlightens us. We become our best when we’re caring about things that we love and that fuel our passion.
Why do you care? You may not give a shit from time to time.
Sometimes we all feel that way.
Life can sadly be forgettable or unforgettable.
As much as we tell ourselves in moments of self-doubt that wedon’t care, we really do. We were created to care. Our hearts tell us so. I know you care, too. You’re reading. You’re learning. You’re trying to grow.
Are you part of the problem or part of the solution? Does your care extend to others in the form of gratitude, peace and love? Are you a resounding gong or clanging cymbal?
Is your voice pure and your intentions true?
Are you looking to start a revolution? Begin today. Don’t wait. The indecision will cripple your ambition.
Do you aim to inspire and live gracefully? Send your positive thoughts whispering through the air, carrying into the ether like a zephyr.
The magnanimous and the mean are both remembered, but will that matter to you as you contemplate whether you care enough to give more of yourself than you ever dreamt possible?
Why do I care? Because I believe life is about giving what we have of ourselves to lift up the spirits and well being of others. Life is about living out the dreams that are planted in our hearts. Giving values, love and hope to our fellow woman. Delivering cheer, enrichment and kindness to our fellow man.
Character? May you embody all that you speak.
Give me Theodore Roosevelt.
‘I care not what others think of what I do, but I care very much about what I think of what I do! That is character!’
Check that and take it to the bank.
That is to say, care not about what others think of your process. Care very much about the results.
I care about creativity, renewal of the mind and spirit and bold steps forward.
I care very much about who benefits from what I do. I hope that is all of you.
I try. My message is for all. To love all regardless of creed, race, class or gender is to truly live. To be love in its purest, human form.
If you focused all of your energy into love, nothing else would matter. Love of your fellow man and woman, love of yourself, love of the handiwork you produce each day. May that permeate your thinking and doing. May you love and give that gift to all. May you live to care.
