Quote to live by

From the movie Gladiator –

“What we do in life, echoes in eternity.” – Maximus

As I age and mature, this is how I’ve tried to live and reflect on my life. Some days are better than others, but as a common man, when you strip it all down at the end of the day, all you truly have is your honor & integrity. And once you lose that, it’s next to impossible to regain it. So, as I begin my blogging journey I will try my best to convey my successes, as well as my failures. I truly view a common life as one of value, of meaning, and of purpose. A common life is not without exceptional moments & triumphs, many of which are hidden or lost in the struggles of daily living. I’m sure I will digress from my stated topic from time to time, but my hope is that you will find interest in my perspectives on the common man’s life, and how common does not necessarily equate with a life of little value, or worse,  a life of worthlessness.
