A blog reader donated $50 to the Submerging Inferno ad project yesterday. I’m almost there! $24,450 to go! I kinda expected to have the month pass and not have any donations, so it was a real kick to see that yesterday.
I’ve been surrounded, even more than normal, by completely delusional people at work lately. Not kids, adults. 98% not employees of the school but still part of my kids’ lives. I look at them and wonder how someone can get their perspective so completely out of whack, so far away from reality. Then I look at other people who are trying to make it big as singers or models who have as much chance as a seagull or a toad. Harsh? Yeah, but true. However, they really believe they have a real shot if they can just get a break.
Those people look around at the world and think it is everyone else who is messed up, who can’t see the truth of what they believe.
The scariest part of all this to me is that. What if I’m one of those people? What if it is clear to most everyone else, but I have the true delusion that I can pull this off, see it through. Of course, there are those people who have delusions of greatness and somehow convince the world of it as well—we all know them, actors who can’t act, singers who can’t sign, writers who can’t write, but everyone believes they can.
Where is the line of believing in yourself and doing all you can to do your part to work hard for your goals and being completely self-indulgent and off your rocker?
