This has been sitting in my drafts for far too long. Since I do not have too much time/ inspiration to write an original, lengthy post, and because my drafts are getting too cluttered, I decided to finally tackle some of the challenges you threw my way.
First things first. I would like to thank:
for thinking of me, and wanting to see what nonsense I come up with.
These three blogs are so different from one another, that I recommend all of you click and check it out, because chances are, you will find something you like for yourself.
Today, I present to you a quote by St. Jerome:
Good, better, best. Never let it rest. ‘Til your good is better and your better is best.
When I read that line, I thought it must be written by some kind of rapper, or a song writer. It just had such a rhythm to me. To my surprised it is a quote by a priest.
It spoke to me, because I never settle. I do things to excel at them, not just to do them. There are so many different ways to do the same thing, that I like to explore all of the options. Some of them are good, some are bad, but I still try. It keeps my creativity going.
And why would you not want to be the best version of yourself? I know some people, who just want to “do” (vs. do their best). To me, that is the easy way out. But I guess that is the appeal. In their minds, they are gaming the system, by just sliding under the radar by doing bare minimum.
What does it mean to be human? Do we want to evolve, or not? Do we want to be a great specie, or not particularly?
Let me know in the comments how you feel about trying to do “better”.
*Britchy’s challenge had a “The Power Of One by Bryce Courtenay” theme. I believe my quote satisfies that requirement, because it is all about betterment of self. Of One. Am I right?
