"Remember You Were Put Here On Earth For A Reason. Until You Fulfill That Reason, You WILL Not And CANNOT Be Harmed"~The Traveler's Gift
I have been wanting to do this post for a long time now. I just hadn’t found the right context in which to put it. In a city where nothing really is out of the ordinary, where almost anything you see might be considered the norm, even if it’s just so far out of the norm for any other city or location.
New York is a beautiful city no matter how you look at it. There is always something going on, whether very early in the morning, afternoon or late at the night. Even at the time of day when only owls should be seen. There is a reason it is called “the City that never sleeps”
Here is a story of a man whom I consider to be the happiest man or person in NYC. While most anyone who sees this man jogging through NYC pretty much anytime in the summer time, would be judgemental and try to put a label on him that they might think fitting, to me he is just happy to be a live and be able to run freely in the city that he considers home.
During the summer months you can see the happiest man in NYC jogging, dancing and sometimes prancing through the streets, usually with a signature ipod head phone on, black shorts, black running shoes, and most of the time, shirtless. You can sometimes see tourists taking pictures or videos of the happiest man in NYC as he jogs through the streets. Often you can tell who the native New Yorkers are(those who completely ignore him) and who the tourists are(the ones taking pictures and videos).
While I do not know the man’s circumstances, the first thought that comes to my mind is that whatever they are, the happiest man in NYC is worried about absolutely nothing.He doesn’t care who is “staring” or what anyome might think of him. He seems happy to just be alive. I think that most of us oftentimes spend too much time worrying about how bad things may be for us, and not enough time working on bettering or improving what may be the issues.
What about you? What makes you happy. What is it that when people see you walking around they think…”Wow, this person has no care in the world. He is so happy and has no problems?” What are you grateful for?
My “wow moment” is being able to get up everyday in good health and have the opportunity to mastermind with people who are moving in the same direction that I want to go. Being able to who have paved the road through which I can travel without re-paving the road.
If you at this moment don’t have that “thing” that makes you happy, do everything you can to find it. Once you find it, continually work on it, no matter what the nay sayers or the dream robbers say or think.
So, think about the happiest man in NYC. Even if you can’t be like him. Be yourself. Be the best original you than a good copy of someone else. Don’t let others control how you feel or what you think about yourself. Re-write YOUR story now. Be the envy and an example for those who look at you.
