Sunday Scribblings: You Are Here

I'm going to start trying to do Sunday Scribblings more.  Maybe not every week, but as often as I can.

Today's scribbling prompt was a photo of what looks like part of a map with the words "You Are Here" written on it. Here is the photo.  To me, "You Are Here" is about living in the moment, something I've blogged about recently.  It's also about knowing where you are and what you can do about your surroundings and circumstances.  In some cases, it's about making the best of your "Here" until you can get to a better place.

I've heard a lot of people talk lately about how much they hate their jobs.  Well, in this economy it's not really possible to just go out and find a new job because you don't really like the one you have, with a few exceptions.  But it IS possible to take a "You Are Here" attitude and understand that while you are there, you should make the best of it and do something positive.

So make a difference where you are.  Because, like it or not, "You Are Here," at least for the time being.  Do what you can to make "Here" a great place to be.


  1. This sounds like a very sound philosophy, and you write about it well.

  2. With unemployment as bad as it is, 'here' is the best place to be!

  3. Well said! Excellent thinking.

  4. A great philosophy...appreciate where you are at on the way to where you are going
