I am experiencing heartbreak right now. It doesn't feel good. It's a lump in the pit of my stomach and a fog in the crevices of my soul. My heartbreak is not from a lost relationship. My heartbreak is from the things that people will do to get ahead in this world. What is it about success that makes people want to lie, cheat and steal to ensure that their pictures is posted for the world to see? What is about success that makes one want to do whatever to get a bigger share of that "un-mighty dollar?" What is it about success that makes one become so devious in their actions? What is the lure of success? What's the aroma that it emits that makes it's fragrance so alluring that people loose all sense of themselves?
I don't have the answer. I truly don't. I wish I did because if I did then quite possibly my heartache would disappear. Maybe I could spare you this feeling. Maybe I could convince someone that success may smell very sweet, however, the smell will disappear quite rapidly if you have not earned it. Yet, I know as I write this message....the lure of success will not prevent questionable behaviors as the aroma is far too strong. Yet, I know what my lesson is and my responsibility....To thine oneself be true and most importantly....when the aroma of success drifts past my nostrils, be certain, that it's an aroma I deserve to enjoy.
Until the next time,
