As our society becomes more interested in instant gratification and we develop a shorter attention span, I have started to challenge myself and those around me to accept the changing world but take time to enjoy the now and those participating in life as it happens. We are human beings not human doers; Let’s be.Anna Dimaggio

I share this entry because of the amazement I felt having served this particular passenger.
I picked up a gentleman late one fall evening who came out of a care facility. He appeared very tired. I quickly learned that this man had just finished another one of his near daily visits to his wife who had remained in a coma for over 10 years. Many years ago, this man woke up in the middle of the night to discover that his wife lay next to him unconscious. She never regained consciousness.
The stress of this man’s experience had taken its physical toll on him. Despite the stress clearly aging him during this endeavor, he projected happiness and contentment despite enduring what few could possibly imagine. His love for this other human being was simply a different level of intensity and devotion.
The commitment and dedication driven by unremitted love this man displayed moved and inspired me. This man’s dedication could have easily been a Nicholas Sparks novel.
It reminded me that in the darkest of times and places, there is immense love surrounding us, even if we are unaware of it.
When it comes to relationships & love, pride is one of the most hurtful things. The more time we spend holding onto our pride the less time we have to be happy with those we love. Learn to let things go and move past your pride & enjoy more of life.Anonymous
You don’t get to be a certain age without some shitty, devastating thing happening that changes the course you thought you were on. Dig deep, and keep going. It will make sense eventually.Anonymous
Never measure your success in comparison to others. Find your own fulfillment and your own happiness and applaud others on their search for theirs.Anonymous
