Remember when you were a kid and you played a game called "King Of The Hill". I used to play the game when there would be a big sand pile. We would try and push each other off the top and if you were on top, at that moment you were King Of The Hill. It was a stuggle for dominance, untill we were chased off the sand pile. As we grow up though, we still play "King Of The Hill". Countries and Nations fight with one another as who is on top. Businesses seek to push their competitors down, so they are the dominant business in the industry. At work, we joust to be in charge or to be more noticed than our co-workers. It seems we struggle for dominance our entire life. But when we were kids on top of that hill and our short lived jubilation soon faced the reality that others were hell bent on dethroning us how did we feel? The loneliness, The Paranoia, The Helplessness, The Angst of everybody out to get you made the game no fun after awhile. Perhaps, just perhaps all the stress we feel in our adult world is from the fact, that we have never stopped playing the game "KING OF THE HILL".
Table Centerpieces are popular for Weddings, Events, Holidays and Special Occasions. Choosing the right Centerpiece to set the theme is one of the most important steps in setting the mood for the Event. There are many options to choose from: Flowers, Candles, Tree Branches, Personal Hobbies, or any combinations of the above. It should not be as tall as your guest, in that it would prohibit conversation at the table. In our lives we too choose a Centerpiece, in which the theme we set becomes what our life will revolve around. We have all seen some of the Centerpieces in people's life: Family, Career, Charity Work, Social Reformers, Criminal, Adventurer etc. etc. Your Centerpiece will dictate the theme of your life. CHOOSE THE RIGHT CENTERPIECE.
Do you see the Train Coming? This is a popular Train Metaphor, along with "It's A Train Wreck"(no photo available):). It refers to problems, situations and decisions where the outcome is Really obivious. Trains are loud, noisey, easily visible and one has no doubt a Train is coming. In our life there are problems, situations, or decisions where the outcome is obivious and you know the outcome even before you get there. There are times where you can take action beforehand and there are times where you can take action only after the fact. You must access the situation and act accordingly. If you can prevent it, prevent it. If you can't, be prepared for the outcome. DO YOU SEE THE TRAIN COMING? YES YOU DO: PLAN ACCOUDINGLY!
Remember the excitement when you were a kid and you would stirup an Anthill? The delight of the ants swarming in a chaotic, frenzy mass of confusion and then if you were too close or stood there too long, you would be bitten. However, on your return the next day, the Anthill would be restored to its original form. Ants in an Anthill create an enviroment of Harmony. Each Ant knows what its role is: worker, soldiers, drone, nurse and queen. Each Ant carries out its role for the good of the Anthill. If you were to watch us from above, a busy supermarket, an airport terminal, or a downtown in a big city would have a day to day activity of an Anthill. We scurry about. in and out of these places as the ants in their Anthill. The difference between us and the ants is do we know what our roles are or do we want more? do we act for the good of others and not only for ourselves? do we create a Harmony in the midst of our frenzied activity? The Ants are aware of each other and what each Ant must do to keep the Anthill entact. When we go to the supermarket, an airport terminal, or a downtown in a big city do we have the same awareness of an Ant? Only we can create an ANTHILL HARMONY.
Today! This very day, I started my blog here at TMesick Photography 2 years ago and it is still going. I have to admit 2 years ago, I thought I would start out slow writing 2 times a week and then build up to every day. However, once it got started, I realized how hard it is to maintain even a twice a week blog and have stuck to that format. The lesson one learns is some blog post are better than others and one never knows what chord it may strike. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BLOG!!!
