It’s Fuck Yeah Friday around here and this image, a graffiti scrawl on the side of an overpass, made me ponder an important question:
Who will I be today?
I wake up every day and just get my ass moving in roughly the general direction I need to be headed. Or at least, I hope that’s where I point my ass.
But where will I point me heart…my soul…my being?
Throughout my days, I’m never the one that has the best ideas on how to live the life I’ve always imagined. Inspiration comes from a guy wearing a hat who showed me a urinal. Some little old ladies I’ve never met (but my mom has). A couple eating lunch in a Subway in Las Vegas. A dude who just might be Captain James T. (fucking) Kirk.
These are the things — and people — in life who don’t just inspire me live. They inspire me to live a life I could have never imagined without them.
So, in short, ask yourself today: Who will I be today?
And open your eyes. Connect with someone.
And don’t just be someone. Be someone who matters to someone.
We can all change lives, including our own, just through the simple act of being ourselves.
But if we don’t give ourselves that chance — we’ll always stare at random messages like this scrawled in freeway overpasses as if they’re Greek instead of the pure, naked brilliance they truly are.
Here’s to finding your version of Fuck Yeah this Friday.
