Finding Greatness

Another Monday’s rolled around.  School’s started and you’re sitting there wondering if this is all life has to offer.  The Olympics are over, so what is left to hope for?  The humdrum of another week washes over you like a tidal wave, crushing you beneath the depths and threatening to drag you along the reef.

A faint glimmer of hope (obviously, not this blog post).

Perhaps it’s a new video game or movie released this week or a new comic book in your favorite superhero’s story line.  It could just be that your favorite shows are returning soon (but still no renewal of Firefly).

Instead of dwelling on how much work there is to do, blow it off focus on taking one step at a time.  No one wrote an entire novel in one sitting [that I know of].  Nothing great happens without …something.  I’m sure there’s an inspirational quote that describes it, I’m just too lazy to Google it.

We are all great.  We are all meant for greatness.  Sometimes, we like to sit and enjoy our latest accomplishments (even if they happened years ago).  Sometimes, we forget that we’ve accomplished anything.  Often, however, I think that we continue to strive toward a goal that we desire not because it will make us great but because we want to make the world a better place.

Listening to the news (and political debates), it’s clear that the world is damaged, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t good out there somewhere…perhaps far away (NASA potentially just discovered a new planet orbiting Alpha Centauri, so…{Sid Meier was right!}).  You just need to look for it (sometimes with a magnifying glass, other times with a microscope, often with a telescope).

Who knows where the journey may take you (the Andromeda galaxy.)?  Who knows how long it will take (countless generations {2.537 million lightyears isn’t that far, right?}.)?  As Dory says,

The best part of waking up is (coffee?) a brand new day to conquer.  Maybe today’s the day you figure out how to create a way to travel faster than light.  But, even if it’s just the day where you put pants on instead of staying in your pajamas, that’s still a victory [it’s the little things].
