Hello, Trouble. It’s been a while since we last met. But I know you’re still out there. And I have a feeling you’re looking for me. You wish I’d forget ya.. Don’t ya trouble? Perhaps it is you, that has forgotten me. Perhaps I need to come find you. Remind you, who I am.
This ad by Gerber wins the internet in my mind. What a call to come alive. Perhaps I need to come find you. Remind you who I am. As I write this I feel guilty that I don’t have an original thought to submit on this topic, only the sense of motivation that I feel right now. Anything I have to say has already been said, and more eloquently by someone else, so again I turn to John Eldredge…
“Adventure, with all its requisite danger and wilderness, is a deeply spiritual longing written into the soul of a man. The masculine heart needs a place where nothing is prefabricated, modular, nonfat, zip lock, franchised, on-line, microwavable. Where there are no deadlines, cell phones, or committee meetings. Where there is room for the soul. Where, finally, the geography around us corresponds to the geography of our heart.”
“don’t ask yourself what the world needs, ask yourself what makes you come alive, because what the world needs are men who have come alive.” – John Eldredge Wild at Heart
