Life – the stuff you do.. RAW Thoughts
Was sitting at the airport in LA a while back where I still remember the moment I found a little of myself in another ones adventure.
You see he was an elderly man, named Wayne I’m thinking 90’s who just experienced facing his most dreaded; and according to him, debilitating fear – his fear of heights… Get this! He jumped out an airplane for the first time!! WOW!
I was amazed that even at his age he just decided to do the thing that scared him the most. Even as I did not know him, the expressions on his face was universal – a joyous sense of accomplishment! I know Wayne was a changed man because of it.
You know it’s funny each of us have all the time in the world till we don’t… Mortality is a Bitch! But it’s also a gift, each of us create our world moment by moment mostly through personal decisions. You see, Wayne made a difficult decision and now has a different outlook in his remaining days, months or years left in this gift of life.
Being a little cynical, I often wonder if those that complain all the time are just scared out of their wits! Really, some just make me avoid them the moment they open their mouths. Some just make it a point to just dump all their worries / problems / regrets on your lap. Mind you, I can be a great listener; but you can only take so much.
What am I going to do? I’m going to practice being Wayne more, who knows how much more of this life I will enjoy! Wayne’s World here I come!
