I tend to do my best thinking when it is late; it allows me to reflect the day and all the work completed - and when I reflect on the day, I really reflect, and try to analyze if I have done things in the direction I should be moving in the most positive way I can, but, more importantly, I ask myself the question "Have I done all I can do for everyone I can?" I won't say this has been easy creating Humanastory; as the idea behind it was to get the stories of success, love, and happiness, through the trials of the human condition we call living, and then show those who would otherwise falter on these small objectives; without support of some kind, some hope, through the support I am personally creating.
I've spent so much time, money and sweat over this creation, the rise has been slow going and it reminds me of how many countless nights I've stayed up late contemplating my own sanity. But I believe in the end, if I can help just one other person out there I would be all the more enlightened myself for doing so. I am honored to say we get so many emails with the stories of humanity from all walks of life and in so many different ways and it is a blessing to know how much we've helped. But I am not without my struggles, I have sustained everything I am doing out of my own pockets, and rightfully so, it is a project I feel must go on with or without the help of others, and it is a much bigger project then just one man alone can do; it is the idea that must live on; Humanastory must go on. Lately I have been getting exhausted from everything both mentally and physically, but then I run across someone whom likes our work and I am reminded, it must continue.
Today I was walking with my crazy wife when we ran across a homeless man, I sometimes do things impulsively and tonight I gave him the rest of the cash we had, and we both told him "Happy Thanksgiving." I am not sure where it would go, but I quickly realized why I am doing what I do - The thought of Humanity is one that often gets left out of subjects in this ever increasingly narcissistic world; the more social media pushes onward, the more anti-social we all become; fixated on our tablets, computers, and mobile devices. Just don't forget to look up from time to time and smile at the sun.
