The singer, Hayes Carll’s, song, “Wild Pointy Finger” is about his pointy finger and how it easily finds faults, assesses blame, or judges others. All the while, he says, there are three fingers pointing back at him. His song contains much truth. It’s easy for us to judge others and to find fault with others without looking internally at ourselves. This happens at the individual level and at the larger international level. When we stop pointing, we open the door for honest dialogue and potential breakthroughs to healthier relationships.
I am an optimistic, can do, and never quit guy. The spirit of hope indelibly marks my DNA. My research at The Ohio State University helped people discover the best in themselves and change their personal lives, public organizations, and whole communities. I bring the same spirit and enthusiasm to my blog to help those who grieve who find themselves suddenly alone, navigate their grieving. Join my more than 24,300Twitter (@alwaysgoodstuff).
