Chicken Shit and Chicken Soup

How many of you at one time or another have dreamed of living in a Utopia?

Ummm….Just the mention of the word relaxes like a back massage doesn’t it?

Really, just imagine living in a place of social and political perfection: no worries about our kids being bullied, no mobbing, no wanton property destruction and certainly no rapists, lunatics, liars and cheats. No suffering the disappointment of the unjustifiable or the unreliable. Maybe I wouldn’t even have to struggle for what seems an eternity to get a divorce.

As your day begins, (or to those of us on this side of the pond whose day is coming to an end) think about Utopia and in the same breath think about what motivates you to do what you do. All of it. Don’t tell anyone unless you want to and do not pat yourself on the back here. Be honest. Think about the bad, the ugly, the judgmental, the backstabbing and the downright disgraceful things that come into your consciousness that motivate you to do what you do.

Basically, check your hater status.

We’re all only human and perfect we will never be, but keeping Utopia in mind accompanied by a bit of earnest self criticism and coarse grained honesty, we can come to face what we really are and see what we possibly could be.

It’s the difference between chicken shit and chicken soup.
