Redefining the standard.

Everyone has standards right? A group of (hopefully) self imposed guidelines on how one should present themselves, how they do their work, or just for overall decorum should be applicable and different from case to case.
Lets at least pretend that people have standards, for humanities sake.

How does one define their standards? I imagine a certain amount of nurture, breeding and surrounding environments has something to do with the bulk of it, for most people at least, and it seems to stop there.

I find myself seriously contemplating the finite and infinite definition of my standards daily, well maybe not daily but certainly close to it.  In thought over the past few weeks I have redefined the way I want to be perceived and all of my thought processes have been affected, for the better I might add.

It was not simple. I spent a lot of time introspectively examining how my being has changed and how the old self imposed standards I lived by were no longer acceptable. Viola! a wonderful sign of growth and progress in my being. A thing i wish more people experienced.

I feel as if i am constantly redefining my standards.

I redefine my standard for appearance so much so that people who typically have an adverse reaction to alternative styles instead find it charming and alluring. In those instances I've always helped someone redefine beauty for  themselves and the way they perceive the world. To help someone unintentionally find a greater sense of something in the world is amazing.

I will spend a great deal of my life being part of a great redefining of life. It is long overdue.

Ive been covered with a blanket of madness. A beautiful lush blanket of madness.

This blanket is lined with the only truth i trust to be honestly truthful. All of us seem to learn that most truths in reality are only truths for a short amount of time.
Carefully stitched in are my companions, giants among men. Relationships that transcend normal bonds.

   Some find it difficult to walk among giants, getting lost in the shadows. It is Difficult enough to walk with one giant  and we keep company with many. Together we form a shadow that can seem inescapable, suffocating or even intoxicating. We pound the earth and move at break neck speeds. It a dangerous buisness keeping company with giants.

While the darkness is broad and sweeping it is not eternal.. The giants will always let light show and give the chance for growth. The opportunity to find ones niche and flourish. The opportunities are given from care, from deep within and are limited.
 One must either transcend  barriers or wither

Take advantage.

This blanket is madness only because the world has since fallen from the truth i know deep within my being. The only justification is madness.

There is not genius without some madness.
