I've often thought of this same thing over my middling years. But, perhaps I'm not in the same headspace as Robert. But, as far as inspiration goes, this dude has it in spades.
I have been living in Puerto Rico for almost a year with a couple of months in Panama mixed in there somewhere. At this stage in my life I am trying to find balance and search for profound and lasting happiness. Life is a beautiful precious journey. Not a moment should be wasted. Ever. I have been less than perfect on so many occasions that it seems at times that they became bad habits.
My friends, I can count them on one hand. I am lucky. I have tested every one of them and they have proven to me beyond a shadow of doubt their incredible value. I hope I am worthy of their friendship. I realized a while ago that unless I find peace with myself first I would never be of any use to anyone.
I am passionate about my work. I love what I do. I am good at it and that gives me great satisfaction. That is not to say I haven't had failures. I have had some spectacular ones, personally and professionally. I have however learned from my mistakes. I have grown from them. They are the frame that I hang my essence from.
I have at times struggled to find peace with people who have treated me badly. I still do. I remember asking my son who is now 15 when he was about 5 at the dinner table one night what the most powerful word in the world was. Without hesitation he replied "love." It still brings tears to my eyes. Even more so now.
Keep the ones you love close to your heart. We don't have much time here on this earth. Celebrate every moment. Live every day with sincere honest affection for the gift that you have and the ones that you can give. Fulfillment is an art. You have practice an art to master it.
And Peo ... :-)
I tried to convince my brother this past weekend that Facebook is scared of Google Plus but he didn't believe me. This graph makes me wonder how right I am... Just kidding, I know I'm more right than he thinks :-)
(and of course the h/t to for the find)
If it wasn't for you fine people that I've circled, I'd have little intellectual conversation in my life! (cuz it ain't over on the book of the face)!

If you aren't yet mining Google+ for gold, you're missing out! The platform offers a tremendously valuable opportunity, for those who make the effort.
Miners are able to unearth:
1. Connections with other people
2. Articles and information to share
3. Opportunities to learn
4. Opportunities to teach and help others
5. Opportunities to build Authority
Make sure that you've taken a moment to fully understand what's down this mine shaft, and the riches that await.
