Woke up this morning looked out of the window to a surprise fog, there was a low ground fog and a stunningly beautiful Blue sky, I crawled out of bed and got ready for the day, not such a rushed busy day as of late, I could relax a little more, after lunch I decided to sit and work outside in my garden to take advantage of the strange October heat, but before that I took a power walk and noticed the beautiful leaves that are starting to fall on the the ground I love the colour's this time of year.
Why Should We Empower People.
I was just watching the evening news and there was an item on somebody empowering others, you here it all the time, don't get me wrong it's nice to hear that other's are now giving out the strength and there time and energy into helping other's get stronger and I like the way it may inspire other's to do the same, but at the same time I worry that it will all get's to much, I like the fact that while other's in today's society with it's reality based TV program's and everything handed to us more or less on a plate, even if if we do have to work very hard for it, life is easier than our predecessors in general, but I am secretly a little sick of it, is that wrong for me to say? if I was going to play devils advocate, who gives us the right to empower yes, you have been successful in what you have done in life but why do we have to empower someone else to be like you, I hear that word all the time is it our right to do our duty to our fellow human? and not think we can get there on our own, are you saying with a big neon sign "look at me, look at me I'm Brilliant look what I have done, you can do it to" but do we want to be like you? What if we want to be empowered to do are own thing quietly, and still feel as successful and not go on about it and that's enough for us, what is wrong with being empowered quietly and not hold up a massive sign saying "Me, Me, Me" I just worry that we will get sick of the word then what will we use then? People have always been empowered through history or we wouldn't have our heroes. We in this century never truly owned the word.
