Shake It Up

Today I’m out to shake you up.

What do you stand for?

Superman stands for Truth, Justice, and the American way. Jean Lloyd stands for the emancipation of the human spirit. SCUBA stands for self contained underwater breathing apparatus.

What do you stand for? What do you really stand for?

My dad stood for honesty and integrity in business. You knew where the man stood. When life comes at you, where do you stand?

Some duck and hide. Some people sway like the breeze and pretend they are standing. Some people will say anything to get approval and be liked. And some people stand for things that are harmful to the many of us.

On some level, you stand for something big. Something that’s possible for the world. Something grand for your life and the people and environment around you. You may be dead to it, or you may not believe you’ll live to see it. No one knows what you’re thinking right now while you read this. It’s between yourself and you.

What do you stand for?

Where do you sell it out?

Imagine for a moment that everyone in the world chose to stand up.

“You’ll never get everyone to go along with it.”
You’re right. I won’t.

How about you? Would you?

Just for today, stand for something, no matter what happens.
