Over thinking it
Someone recently presented the question: Who is someone you admire and have always wanted to meet?
This came about after a networking meeting where people started talking about the famous people they had met. I can say that I have met a few celebrities in my time, but I have never been an autograph hound or screaming fan.
I consider celebrities to be people, just like me. Okay, so maybe the entire world knows who they are, but still – they put their pants on the same way I do. Okay, maybe they put the left leg in first, or both legs at the same time, but you get the idea. We are both people.
So, as I considered “someone I admire and have always wanted to meet” I thought about the people I admire. I have actually met most of them, so they don’t fit the criteria for the question.
Then I started thinking about historical figures. There are many great people of history, but still – they were just a person – like me.
Then I thought, who was the “perfect person”, the one I truly admire? That would have to be Christ. But, if that is my answer that means I doubt my faith. You see, I have already “met” Christ, and He is with me always. So that answer doesn’t fit the criteria either.
As I thought more about this whole question, I honestly could not come up with an answer. Historical figures would be amazing to meet, but there are so many great choices, I wouldn’t be able to pick just one.
It suddenly occurred to me that I must be over thinking this and that the question probably wasn’t meant to be difficult. I think my answer will have to be, that I couldn’t come up with one. Is that the easy way out? I don’t think so, I’ve been considering the question for a couple days now.
How about you? How would you answer the question: Who is someone you admire and have always wanted to meet?
