Sometimes I'm reminded that I am not the center of the universe. Days stretch out before me where I will be a peripheral actor. I'm used to it, and I don't like it. What to do?

As a youngster, I idolized my older brother. I spent a great deal of time thinking his life was awesome, and mine was not. As a young adult, my family grew bored whenever I spoke of what the organizations I supported did. They heard in my voice a distance. They wanted to know what I was doing.

And so I think the answer is to remain grounded in the moment. Reset the stage. Redirect the light. Understand that for me, my world is the center of my universe. Let go of what is being taken from me. Release it. Embrace the supporting role I am given. Live it.

It's time to get ready for the day. I hope you have a great week ahead!
