Well, that was wierd. When I heard on the news that Anna Nicole Smith had died, I felt bad. It's always sad when someone dies a premature death, but I didn't expect to really care.
Not that I've followed her in the news -- she seemed to be everywhere - and always pathetic.
A sad life with a sad ending. Now, my goal here is not to bash Anna Nicole - for I feel badly for everyone in her 'circle'. It's all just...sad.
But the learning for me is this: this is the natural end when life is all about 'me'. When the goal in life is to be famous, big, important, wanted, needed, happy, or fulfilled -- that life will lean towards the pathetic. Sad, frustrated and selfish.
I'm convinced that 'giving' is the better way.
Now, I'm no porn star or billionaire and I'm not famous -- but I recognize the tendancies within that make me want to be 'about me'. And I think 'giving' is the way out!
Today: give. Something, somehow -- give. Try it!
