How deep are the tracks you tread?

By being alive that means we'll touch a life in some way or another. A couple of years ago I'll admit I was on auto-pilot and being curmudgeonly was a common occurrence. I made people laugh with my rants, but I focused on anger most times.

One day I took a good look at myself after some things I had some people tell me, real food for thought and decided I wanted to make a more positive impact in the lives of others.

I also found out that some kind words in the right moment can make all the difference. Does this make anyone a savior? Of course not. It just makes us human and humans trying to help others out on occasion. I've been lucky enough to be in situations where I've made a positive impact in the life of a person and have actually ended up offering words of support when all I thought I was doing was being honest and giving my best.

That's the thing, sometimes you can make a huge difference by just being kind. A little word in the right place can help someone decide to push through.

Does that mean you won't leave negative tracks? Again, of course not. We're human. Mistakes happen and sometimes words fail us in the pursuit of happiness and lead us more to say the wrong thing at the worst time. It happens. But there are many tracks to leave.

For me, it's all about leaving positive tracks in as many lives as you can. Some will be deep, some will blow away with the wind, though it's always within us to at least attempt to make a positive impact.

Will it always be smooth sailing? Will it be perfect? Will you always seem related to Captain Awesome?

Of course not... but that doesn't mean you can't give your best.

Peace, love, and maki rolls.
