Open Your Heart…

I am such a lucky man and so very happy to be a part of this world. It is just so full of kind,loving and inspirational people. We just have to find a way to really open our eyes to see them, recognize what they are doing and appreciate and be inspired by them. How do we open our eyes to see the reality of what is truly around us? This world of ours is just overflowing with kind, loving generous people. OK, this is something I have “sort” of known all of my life but it is only in the past few years that this has really become so very clear to me. People are always good, it is just their priorities change with time.

Oh, for sure there are some “jerks” in this world, some people that are just not so nice. If we take into account the entire population of this world, the number of “jerks” would make up a very small percentage. Why don’t we see this, realize it and appreciate it? Does one rotten apple have to spoil the entire barrel? Do we really have to see the world that way?

About 90% of people are regular hard working, kind, and nice people just doing their best to get through their day while raising their families. About 5% are what I call Earth Angels, those that step up and go the extra mile to help another. That leaves the remaining 5%, the jerks, enough said about that group. The tricky part is we all float back and forth between those “groups” depending on the circumstances and situation. Yes, I can be a jerk at times, but so can you, so there. I usually meet this fourth class, this class has people who have serious issues with their priorities and thus you feel left out. A good friend of mine recently got into a relationship or friends with benefits would be a more appropriate term, and the result is ignorance. We don’t go out now or if we do I’m the one who is left out and treated unfairly. Never mind.

Based on these very scientifically obtained statistics we are surrounded by kind, loving and generous people, yet we don’t see it or realize it and appreciate it. I suppose possibly the news media is at least partially to blame for this. Most of what we hear or read day after day is the bad stuff, the negative actions of the small minority of the population. When that is all we hear or read, maybe it is no wonder our outlook on the world has become at least somewhat jaded. What do we need to do to open our eyes to see the true world around us? These stats are just made up, my blog my stats:-/

We all have such busy hectic lives that it is so easy to just with draw into our own little world seemingly content with that. Could there be more to life if we open our eyes and hearts to the wonders around us? Not look at everything and everyone with negative suspicion. What do you think?

Attaching and de attaching is what I have been doing for the past 15 years. I just lose people. Is it really my fault? I would never get attached to people if I would have known when they’ll go away

When we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that’s present…we experience heaven on earth.

    Hey Mick Daddy, I like this blog.. Its bittersweet and it touches my heart in a way most unexpected to me. I do agree with you. Kind, generous people exist, In fact, only good people exist. They are just nice to some people and mean to others.. As for losing people, I dont think you should give it a thought. If someone flits away, it was probably not meant to be. Everyone has their own place in a queue to enter their tickets and get their own time. You’ll know when a real Earth Angel comes flitting by. 🙂
