So, having read and reread now repeatedly, I was more than a bit surprised when I read it for about the 90th time yesterday, and actually got a bit choked up when I got to the end, and read:

Today my old skin has become as dust. I walk tall among men and they know me not, for today I am a new man, with a new life.”

Og Mandino, The Greatest Salesman in the World

Like I said, I have read those words repeatedly for weeks now, and they were simply words to me, until yesterday. What struck me for the first time was that I really was trying to become a β€œNew Man, with a new life,” after living over six decades as the old me. For some reason that hit home yesterday.

In all honesty, I am not that concerned with whether others recognize me or not. But I am really interested in personally meeting the new man I become. I cannot wait to see how this all turns out.

  • Hey Wanda, I’m just following your lead. You have been doing great posting, and sharing on Marco Polo, so I am trying to do the same.

  • Thank you, Janet. I am trying to enjoy it, but it also stresses me out, and at times kinda saddens me, because I look back at my actions over the decades, and think of how much better I could have been. But the best time to start improving is now, so…

  • Thank you, Lori. This has been/is an interesting journey so far. I am a typical 60-year-old man, which means I was raised to ignore “The World Within.” I think I like this new way better!

  • Thank you, JJ. I am glad I made you smile. (I was always the class clown growing up. I think it is because I always wanted to see the people around me Happy.)

  • reading “I am really interested in personally meeting the new man I become” just made me smile a very wide & deep smile for you. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  • The cement is chipping off and revealing the gold that has been buries underneath! Enjoy the journey!

  • I can already tell, Dirk, you are going to be very pleased with the new you. Great blog post! πŸ™‚
