Well, last week it was a question from my daughter and now this week, it’s a statement from my son. Since we just had a lunar moon 🌚 eclipse, he proceeds to tell me that the next solar eclipse ☀️will be April 8, 2024. I said “WHAT?” He repeated the date as I became amazed. I was curious as to how he’d know that so I guess he got an alert on his phone. Really? I don’t get those and I’m surprised it interested him. I of course looked up more info, but no number 10’s warriors as that will be the anniversary next year~ so unimaginable. The solar or sun eclipse will last about 4 minutes or so and stretch from Texas all the way to Maine! Here in Ohio, it should be visible (or should I say not visible) around 3:03 PM, but I will follow more as it gets closer. April 8, yeah, I won’t forget…😳
So, moving on to today my readers. One in a million as yes, you should be. The Ultimate Warrior and then Warrior himself mentioned being one in a million and not one of THE millions many times. It does sound intimidating for sure. Very hard to live up to but every single one of us can, and are one in a million if we truly think about it. Nobody and no one is exactly like you at all as I hope you believe that. You are not the same one in a million as Warrior or even myself but you are yours as it should be. We shouldn’t feel pressured and yet we are. Not all of us are cut out to “save the world” or make a gigantic contribution in some way although we can always try. Some of us are more behind the scenes~ guiding and helping but it is hard when we can’t fully “see” the results. Take me for example here. I know I make a difference and have assisted so many on their journeys and yet, it’s not in a grandiose manner at all. Sometimes I undervalue my inspiration when in fact, I shouldn’t. My mission is different than that extroverted healer if you will. The universe reminds me of this in many ways, as I need to always believe I am one in a million too without all the grand gestures.
Don’t just go through the motions but own who you are and what you do. You can do your job but don’t become the job. This one in a million idea sounds like a topic for perhaps a college graduation speech or something. I DO know of a few who have recently graduated from higher learning. Many congrats their way! 👩🏻🎓👩🏻🎓👩🏻🎓 🏻👍☺️I guess it could also be about a eulogy of sorts. That got me thinking. When you leave this earth, I do hope you, or even others can honestly say you were one in a million. I’m not telling you to go out there right now and risk it all to impress but just think about how you want to be remembered. If you get too caught up in the daily grind, it will consume you so please find a creative outlet to fully express yourself. Believe me when I say, it teaches so much as you go along your way. Warrior can attest to that as well.
I also believe we shouldn’t have to live up to any real expectation of what one in a million means to us as individuals. Sure, it can be a role in leadership as Warrior also said to “be a leader for the leader!” If that’s how you want to get motivated, go for it as he always inspires me. If that’s not your thing, don’t sweat it as we all are that one in a million in many ways. You just have to find what works for you and keep doing it with true purpose. Often times, I think many of us feel like we are fighting something inside like wanting more and yet the ropes are pulled in such directions, one side has got to give. I have learned that when you pull too much that rope breaks or you fall. OK, sometimes those things propel us forward but other times, it isn’t necessary. What I mean is we shouldn’t keep pulling when there is no push from another side. If you don’t feel aligned with whatever or whomever it is, it isn’t for you. You’re one in a million moments aren’t meant to be such a struggle. They should flow with ease. Yes, it’s that simple.
Warrior fought hard to be that one in a million throughout his life here and yet to me, he didn’t have to fight so hard. It’s one idea if you are just doing something for yourself, but another all together when others are involved. Being a character like the Ultimate Warrior requires so much of that one in a million way of thinking. I was always so impressed with how he did it all. He was STILL that one in a million with or without being famous, or on my TV. I needed to see that character on my TV years ago to get me where I am today as astonished I still am. He was like no other in the business and that is what he wanted to be despite the somewhat negativity brought his way. Without his fame, we would never have known him.
Look back or even ahead to your life at all the one in a million adventures or moments you made or can make. Don’t just identify with a title, but make something good happen that will be worthy at least to you of being one in a million. I’m still learning as I go but we all need to be proud of the good we contribute, however it needs to be. THANK YOU Warrior for your one in a million self as I continue being ME without regrets. You be the same and fight hard for what will remain after your time here. I do hope that someone will say: “He (or she) was truly one in a million.” That’s who we uniquely are so keep going to always believe no matter what. If pulling that rope, expect a push sometimes from behind that helps you decide to go for it or let go. It’s your one in a million life. Just do YOU…
P.S. Oh, and don’t forgot to shake ropes too besides the push and pull!
P.P.S. My son had a friend over recently and they were outside playing music- YAY! Right after I finished writing this rough draft- I walked by the screened sliding door and heard the lyric: ” I was gonna be that one in a million…” by Panic at the Disco. Yes, that’s me and signs I always get. I laughed yet again… Take a listen to that song if you aren’t familiar. Wow… It has tons of Warrior references to me… “High Hopes” indeed… 🎼💙👏🏻🏻￼￼￼￼￼￼
