Barack, Ricky, George & Donato

Barack, Ricky, George and Donato. Sounds like a new fab four, eh?

As you can see from the picture below, maybe we could be the new fab four. Wouldn’t that be something, all four of us together for a photo and share one of many stories¬†we have in common.

Barack, Ricky, George, Donato

For those of you that know me, today is a special day. It’s my birthday!

There is the clue for what we all have in common, although not quite all born on same day, but we are all born in same year.

George is 25 days older than me and i’m 25 days older than Ricky. Bizzare. Barack spoils the numbers as he was born 4th August.

I wish you all a happy day.

My dilemma

Something for the weekend to ponder on. A dilemma i have.

I often wonder, and i’m sure i’m not the only one asking the question “why am i here. What is my purpose in life?”

Should i carry on working as i have mortgage to pay and enjoy exotic holidays, or do i jack it all in and do something i really enjoy and make a more positive contribution to society.

Don’t get me wrong, i don’t mean that what i am currently doing and what i have done in the past has not made a positive contribution to society. Far from it!

What i mean is that if i choose a different path, will it also make a positive contribution to society and at the same time be more enjoyable and more fulfilling.

Sometimes life is not simply back and black, but many shades of grey.

What do you think?
