At the risk of sounding self-absorbed or conceited, sometimes I get sad when I realize that people don’t know how awesome I am. If we wore our experiences in life on our sleeves like the merit badges they should be, then people could tell just by looking at me that I have been a world traveler, a performer, an archaeologist – among many other things. But sadly, we carry these extremely important parts of ourselves inside, where only we can see them most of the time.
Let me be clear; I am not just talking about myself here. I don’t know how awesome YOU are either and that is heartbreaking. So next time you find yourself not knowing how awesome the person next you is, you should try and find out.
