Life’s ONLY rule

You have to care - it's the only rule in life!

The way I see it life has only one rule……and that is you have to CARE!

How do you express it?

It doesn’t matter how you express it, whether you call it giving a shit, whether you call it stepping up to the plate, rising to the challenge, giving a toss… however you put it there is only one rule that underpins every other rule in life…that is to CARE!

Why caring matters

All the good things in life only happen because somebody cares. (and conversely a lot of bad stuff happens when people don’t care!……remember the quote by Edmund Burke….”all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men (and women) do nothing”  and how many times in history this fact quote has proven correct )

The good things happen because someone cares enough about whatever specific thing it is to do whatever it takes to make something happen. Whether it’s the next big leap in astrophysics… or whether it is picking up the phone and calling to see if you are ok, or leaving a message of support for you on facebook they only happen because someone CARES…..

What about you?

What do you care about and why…… and how do you show it…. share it with everyone in the comments!
