Crisis of Conscious

So for the last 3 days, on the way to work, the radio station i listen to have been playing Michael Jackson's track, "Man in the Mirror" and by the third day (today) lets just say, "The penny, she is dropping". I have no idea if someone was trying to send subliminal messages to the masses but eish it worked!

My thought process went like this:

Day 1: Ooooh, "Man in the Mirror" by Michael Jackson, talk about a blast from the past! What a jam!

Day 2: Hey that's funny, didn't they play this song yesterday. What a track! Some thought provoking ish being said there...gosh, back in the day MJ could do no wrong could he, now look at him.

Day 3: This song is so right, you have to be the change you want to see. What the heck am i doing to make this world a better, healthy place *long thoughtful pause*...ummm, i guess that means nothing.

I need to be a do-gooder type but am kinda embarressed that i am lazy about nuturing this dormant do-gooder instinct of mine. I seem to lack that i-want-to-save-the-world-and-all-furry-animals gene for some reason. *Cringe* Maybe i just don't care....nah, that can't be it, i do care...i guess i am just Waiting on the World to Change. Dude, if we wait for that, we are gonna be waiting for a while innit.

So here i am, wanting to do good, but have no idea where the heck to start! Baby steps i guess, i will have to put off adopting that baby from Cambodia for now *smirk*

Pretty heavy thoughts for a Friday, i know. But as the saying goes, better late than pregnant, hehehe, i mean never, lol!

Cheer up people, it's the weekend and that's always good!

Stream of consciousness from Vimbai. Brilliant.

Still trying to figure this out to - I have such great intentions but never seem to get around to doing anything!

Yay, we are in the same boat. But i took the first steps (literally) to becoming a do-gooder - i did a 15km charity walk, the sore muscles in my butt are testimony to this.
