I spent a lot of time thinking about Columbus Day. Some people call Columbus a hero, others call him a scoundrel. Both could be right. I grew up believing that Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean and discovered America, with a lot of help.
The truth is, Columbus was brave enough to leave the safety of Spain and go where no one (that he knew, at least) had gone before. Years ago, he was spoken of favorably. Over 520 years later, the story is not so positive.
That leads me to ask the question: What are people saying about you and I? Most of the time, I hear good things. I choose to focus on the positive because it helps me move forward and do more. Since I canít please everyone, I will make sure that those that matter most to me are happy. There are some people who will not be happy with me no matter what I do.
Follow your destiny-no matter where it leads. Hopefully, history will remember us favorably.
