I’m a little sick, there’s no questioning that. We’re all sick, and we all spread our assorted diseases, every day. OK, gross… let me try again.
So, we have these meatbag bodies of ours (this is still a little gross but stay with me) and our bodies are these ecosystems of sicknesses and germs. And it’s really important that all these assorted germs, bacteria, viruses, whatever, don’t get out of balance- otherwise we get way too sick and we’ve got a problem.
As stated in the mission statement “You are defined as a person by the influences you allow, as well as reject into your life.” So every day I work to keep my influences in balance. I go out in the world, and unfortunately there are people, places, and things in the world that beat me down. Those influences suck. I also go out in the world, and there are influences in the world that lift me up, fill me with joy, excitement, warmth, wonder, inspiration, and love.
Everyday we get to decide what disease we’re going to spread. Today are you going to spread hate, cynicism, gossip, distrust, anger, rudeness? Or are you going to spread acceptance, hope, creativity, cooperation, and equality?
Influentza. Get infected… Cuz we’re sick.
