A Lemming thinks …

Wait!  STOP!  Look before you leap!  Isn’t the view fantastic?  Sometimes the best things in life do not involve what everybody else wants.  Being the most popular, staying in style, keeping up with the Joneses is a never ending roller coaster that never completely satisfies these “follow the leader” qualities.  Everybody wants to be liked but you must give yourself time to form who you are, to lead others into how to think for themselves.

This is my first blog entry … my first blog.  The seed has been planted.  I’ll make observations about view points and society that may or may not be the most popular line of thought.  I have an ISTJ personality (see Myers & Briggs) and I’m introverted.  My opinions will be from my personality perspective.  All that I ask is that you have an open mind …. that you thinImagek.  You don’t have to agree with what I say.

Now here is a profound paradox of popularity … people want to follow the latest trends but those setting those trends are leaders, trend setters … people that are not following anybody.  So to be popular and on the cutting edge, you have to think independently to be on the cutting edge.
