Are you prepared? Maybe. I walk the road of "do your best" and "do no harm." I prayed 3 to 7 seven a week depending on how many times I've been told "You Suck" by my ex-wife.
Its the day before I meet my maker and it feels like this threat of creditors "If you don't make a payment today, the full balance is due tomorrow!" Flashes of movers taking all your possessions, the HD3D TV, the leather couch, and your P90x DVDs, zip through your mind. "NO!" you scream and you begin bargaining phase of the grief process.
"Before we meet Mr. (or Mrs.) Maker, I got this thing I gotta do. Its what I love and I always told myself before I met you, this would be the last thing I do. I have been blessed in this life to have the opportunity to do what I love and serve to make this world better with the gifts I've been blessed to possess."
Getting real for a moment, my talent (if there is such a thing) would NOT be music, poetry, or emceeing. It is creativity. I chose the medium of music, poetry, and emceeing to express love for best of human potential to positive changes themselves in the world.
This day being the day before judgement day. I'm doing what I love for the youth Rigler Elementary. I'm performing and sharing my words and ideas to inspire them to keep pushing for betterment. I'm put my heart, soul, nerve, and, sinew into this performance, because tomorrow is not promised, we are living on borrowed time, and depending on the terms you sign to, tomorrow payment is due in full. Unless... we get a deferment.
