YOU ARE MY HERO

I truly believe that inside each of us there lies an unlimited potential that few of us ever truly realize we have, let alone use that potential for greatness. As human beings it is so easy to look at others and see the great things they accomplish and thus they soon become our "heroes". Don't get me wrong, I think all of us need a hero or two in our lives. Maybe these heros are just ordinary people who we depend upon to help keep us sane at times. These heros come disguised as family members, friends, artists, authors, sports stars, and yes I believe even those we may call foes can really be a hero at times. I classify anyone who helps me along in this world to grow and to learn as one of my heros. I have so many untold heros that have written books for me to read, that have taken a moment to say hello and how are ya, that have turned their back on me and forced me to do the thing for myself, heros who have allowed me to be a small part of their lives, heros who have overcome great odds and accomplished much good while leaving me with hope for myself in accomplishing things I previously thought unattainable.Yes, Ive been fortunate, my life has been filled with heros of all kinds, some that never even considered themselves a hero.I would have us all realize that at any given time we may be a hero to someone without even knowing it. So instead of looking at all the heros out there and saying I wish I could do something grand, look inside, dig down deep, find that unlimited potential for good, and let Spirit lead you on to becoming someones hero if only for a fleeting second. We are all the Light that shines from infinity and thus beyond. I leave you gentle souls with this quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson:"Insist on yourself; never imitate......Every great man(and woman) is unique."

Well said Captain...

This post does a great job reminding us that either recognizing heroes or becoming one ourselves is easier than we think; summed up nicely in this statement:

"I classify anyone who helps me along in this world to grow and to learn as one of my heroes."

Take care.
