What if…

It is never my intent to piss somebody off, but invariably, it will happen in life.  As my friend said today…I might be sorry it hurt your feelings, but I stand by what I said.  I don’t think this is just a Scorpio quality although we can both be pretty stubborn.  In the middle of one of these “discussions” today with my friends, I said something that I hoped didn’t hurt their feelings.  I said, you know, this really makes me mad.  I get tired of hearing the same old thing from the same people who always, ALWAYS say that they can’t change the way things work so why even try.  They say they don’t like x,y, and then there’s that nefarious z.  Usually it’s z’s fault anyway…he always comes last.  They rant about it…they ponder it, and they may even want to change something, but they won’t.  So I said, what if Gandhi said “You know what, you be the change you want to see.  I’m out.  I am just one skinny man.”  Or what if Martin Luther King, Jr. said “I have a dream, but my four little children will never see it.  Enough about that.”  Then there’s the famous quote by Winston Churchill, you know the speech I have spoken about in one of my previous posts here…”Never give in, never give in, never; never; wait, they gave you a raise.  Well that’s okay then.”  Yup.  These are the quotes that made these men famous, right?  Oh wait.  Not so much.

So, for random topic Tuesday, I started thinking about all the great people who have come before me.  I started thinking about the ways they inspired people, all over the world, and what a difference one person can make.  Man, woman, or child.  Who am I talking to?

  1. Aimee,
    The best people I know are the ones that can come up to me and “tell me the TRUTH”- no holding back. I love that- it helps me grow, learn, become better.
    And I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired so I’m really praying that I am shown the right path- and peace. And to help me live in today!!! Your such an amazing person and your so inspiring!!! Thank you!!!
