What are you willing to die for? Who are you willing to die for?
Neither one of these questions always produces a simple answer. There are so many variables involved, that it actually pains me to think of the answer. Questions come to mind such as: how would I die? Do I have to die? What type of person would I die for? What type of person does it make me if I don’t have a list, that is pages long, of people? Does this mean that I don’t really love others?

Do you ever find it difficult to evaluate how successful of a life you’re living? Do you compare yourself to others in a similar place in life? Or maybe you have an internal barometer that you try to measure up to.
Too often, I find that I compare myself to others in a similar walk of life. Doesn’t matter if they’re single or married, work in a cubicle or are a CEO, have never left the state or have traveled the world, I just check to see if I measure up to how successful they appear to be.
