I was looking through the newspaper this morning, and came across this little gem in the horoscope section. While I’m not a big follower of them nor a real believer, I do occasionally come across one that has a real air of truth to it. This is one of them:
“Aries (March 21-April 19). – Because of the unique circumstances of your recent years, you have information to impart. You’re a teacher, and the world is your classroom, filled with students – some willing, some difficult. You’ll make an impression on all.”
I’ve certainly had some interesting things going on in my life in the last couple of years, and I definitely have a thing or two to say about it. Whether I’m really teaching anyone anything, well, that’s debatable some days. I certainly hope that someone is listening to, er… reading what I have to say, and that they are getting something useful out of it. And if not, well, that’s OK, too.
There’s a song lyric that goes “If I can help somebody as I pass along, then my living shall not be in vain.” And if I help no one but myself by sharing my experiences, I’m still helping somebody. That definitely counts for something, because you can’t help someone else, until you’ve learned to help yourself.
I like to think I’m good at both. 🙂
