We Are All Alone Together

About 18 months ago, a friend gave me a DVD of The Secret. I spent the first half of the video watching with my arms folded in doubt, and the second half taking notes.

It was just what I needed – a kick in the ass.

But one crucial part of the process is – action. No one will paint the picture for you – you need to move. I didn’t. I had fifty ideas and didn’t know which one to do. Been there, done that?

It’s a daily process, but it really is amazing how much gets done when you get going.

Social Networking has given us a canvas to paint whatever we want and share it quickly. But we are all just people bumping into each other and each other’s ideas, if we do nothing with those connections.

I was watching what some would constitute a “girlie movie” the other night – P.S. I Love You. It's a cool story with good lessons. Plus I think Hilary Swank is a gifted actress and the cast was excellent.

There is a line in the movie that rang true to what I’m referring to here; “The thing to remember is if we're all alone, then we're all together in that too”.
