It Is Pure

This is my most favorite and sentimental piece of jewelry. This ring was given to me by Becky when I was her "Man of Honor" in her wedding. The story behind the inscription is that while in college we took a German class together and I always used to say "Es ist Rein?" thinking it meant "Is this rain?". Well, come to find out it means "It is pure." and this ring symbolizes our pure never ending friendship.

Something Bigger Than Myself

I know it's been a while since I've blogged. Sorry if anyone actually reads this but I'm actually more sorry to myself for having let my blog fall to the wayside! Lately, I've been thinking that I want to do something bigger with my life, something that focuses on the bigger picture and not just on myself. What's the best way to do that? Well, the best way to get in touch with something bigger than myself is to do something good for someone else.

I'll be looking into volunteering my time at the local food bank (a perk for me is it's just right around the corner from my job!). I think it important to acknowledge that people out there are suffering and I mean really suffering, not this existential crap that most of us get down in the dumps about. I'm learning it's my (and your) responsibility to help alleviate any of that suffering if we have the means to do so. We may not have money, but we have time. You say you don't have time? Well, just think about all the time you spend on facebook. Is that really how you want to be spending your time? Let's do some good for others and in turn figure out what this life is all about.

Just food for thought.
