Follower or Leader

“Follow me and everything is alright, I’ll be the one to tuck you in at night. Follow me and I can guarantee you won’t find nobody else like me.” I forget the name of the artist of this song but it has been playing in my head all morning. When I was young, I was told that it is better to be a leader than a follower. I disagree now. We spend our lives wearing many different hats- we are leaders, teachers, followers, students. We teach our children and are often amazed when they teach us things back, fundamentals that we have forgotten- given back to us with honesty and innocence. I am a firm believer in teaching others but by teaching others we are learning and so the circle continues. Life is a miracle of knowledge waiting to be shared. Knowledge is power and self enlightenment. Today I will be all of the above and will enjoy each role. As long as I learn something and teach something today, no matter how insignificant it may be to someone else, I will know that I have had a truly blessedl day.

So continues the journey with love and light…
