“When someone you greatly admire and respect appears to be thinking deep thoughts, they are probably thinking about lunch. ” ~ Unattributed

thinkerMy uncle was recently visiting from Germany and I was telling him that my brother and I used to think that he was the coolest, smartest guy ever!

Seriously, he had the most perfect balance of easy-going, laid back confidence and hipster independent-thinking we had ever encountered in our young lives.

We greatly admired him and certainly wanted to emulate some of his attributes.

He is indeed an intelligent and well-educated man and can easily engage in conversations about most anything.

What’s not to be admired?

There’s nothing wrong with admiring the great qualities of others as long as you recognize that you bring value to the world as well.

You don’t have to be anything more than who you are to make positive contributions today and leave a lasting legacy for future generations.

The next time you find yourself wishing you thought deep thoughts like someone you admire and respect, consider the possibility that they are thinking about the groceries they need to pick up.


Who do you admire and why?
