My best friend, who recently passed away, shared this quote with me, “When you are in the middle of something, take a step back to see it from another perspective.” This is just one of many quotes that has helped me to refocus my life and help me remember the important things in life.
The one I most appreciate is from the great late comedian, George Carlin. In his book, Say Anything, Carlin explains how he was once asked to perform for a group of reporters. What he said, in his own words, was, “People are so easy to fool.” He goes on to say that, when you are doing something that affects millions, you will be tempted to say “I am not a reporter, I can never be.
I don’t know about you, but I can find something in my life and be tempted to say I am not a reporter and I can never be, but I can be. Sometimes you have to be a little more specific to get you out of a bind.
Carlin says it takes a lot of courage to do what he did. He did it for a large company in order to keep a part of his life. He wanted to be a part of what was going on, but he also wanted to keep a portion of his life. He did it in order to be a part of a larger group.
There are times when we have to take a stand on something that we don’t want to. In the case of Carlin, I believe it is because he chose to take a stand when he was not supposed to and it saved his life.
One thing that really struck me this morning was Carlin’s demeanor as he told me his story. It’s not like he was a man who was so full of bravado and confidence, but you could see the fear in him. I think it was a combination of his own self-doubt and the fact that he was in a bind.
The point is that Carlins story is a cautionary tale about the dangers of taking a stand on something that you dont want to do. When I read it, I began to think that Carlin might not have been the only one who was scared. I mean, I dont think Carlin was so full of confidence. I think he was scared to death that he had made a mistake. That is the feeling I got from reading Carlin’s story.
The story starts with Carlins girlfriend, Sarah. She has been a model for the past few years. She is about to break a record. She has decided she is going to model for Carlin and try to win him back. She knows this because she has already tried to talk to him on the phone to get him to give her a chance. Carlins girlfriend, Sarah, is a very self-aware woman.
Sarah is a model and I don’t think she could possibly have known what was going to happen to her. She’s a very self-aware woman, and I think she was very, very confident in the fact that she had a shot at winning Carlins romantic heart.
