“When you know a lot, you realize how little you know”
I was told this today as part of public speaking (EW)
Anyhow, well I think it can relate to A LOT of different things, but I relate it to, me, I know sounds very self centered, but at the moment I believe I have the right to be thinking about me…
So then, how can that relate to me? Well, I knew that where I was staying was not appropriate, I knew that something had to change, I knew that my VCE was struggling, I knew that My relationship with god was struggling, I knew A lot of things, and yet really I had no clue about much at all!
I had no idea how much I relied on my parents, I had no idea how easy I really had it, I had no idea how important the salvation army is to me and I had no idea how so many things can go wrong, I had no clue how fast things spread, I had no idea how many people think they are helping but really they are hindering… I had no clue, and there I sat day in day out thinking I knew all there was to know about my situation!
So then, are you like that? Are you actually aware of the situation you could be in, you could be causing? Are you aware of the extent that your actions can have? Are you sure you have thought enough about everyone involved, and what they might think of your decision? Lastly, Are you really aware of how much effect you can have? Do you believe that your actions are small? Maybe to you they are, but I can 100% guarantee you that your actions, while they are small to you can really affect other people, can have a really good, or really bad effect, so, I ask you…
Are YOU aware?
