When I observe the affluent people I am acquainted with there is a subtleness and pride that is combined in their aura. I can do doubt write the same thing about the homeless people I intersect with daily.
Each one knows how to separate business and pleasure, and although you may disagree with a compartmentalizing philosophy I see a definite wisdom in such a practice.
Yesterday when I finished my weekly trip to Publix, servicing a client and taking care of some administrative tasks as tax day draws nigh I went to Land Rover. While I was there I had a cup of their Starbucks coffee, and as reality would have it I had to pop a chill pill because frequently my conversations with Michael can delve deeper and more depressive than normal. I’m glad they were in my man purse. I was better able to come back down to Earth as I drove away.
This life is not simple, fair or balanced. Fox News, even though I’m a staunch Republican, lies every day they come on the air in saying they are fair and balanced. If that’s the case than Charles Manson is Mother Teresa. Don’t get me started on ABC, NBC or CBS. I’ll just default to Jesus Christ who sees through all the lies.
But until then I simply strive to do the best I can as I go about subtleness, pride and humility in my business and life, and for the life of me I hope to be closer at fifty than I am at forty-one is balancing the paradox.
