Shameless self-promotion of my writing skills or lack there of.

Forget the dumb stuff. Learn to let the little things go. It is the little things that will eat you up inside. The big things come and go in a flash of glory. Though, it seems when you look back, most of them were not so much one big thing but the culmination of all the little things that have been percolating in the back of your mind. The little things irk us, but maybe not enough for us to do anything about them. Yet, if we don’t do something about them, they grow larger than life in our minds. Let ‘em go or address them, but don’t let them fester.

Understand that you are not in control of everything in your world. Hell, I would be surprised if you were in truly in control of anything. You may think you have it all under control (who among us doesn’t?), but that is rarely the case. Control is an illusion, like freedom or ownership.

Carry your fair share of the load. Carry more if you can shoulder it. Don’t rely on others to do your work for you. Share the load if you have to, but don’t just step back and let it be carried for you.

Keep your friends close and your enemies…well, I think you enemies should be kept as far away from you as humanly possible. Constantly watching your back because your enemy is always under your heels is no way to go through life.

Your decisions will come back to haunt you or bless you, depending on the spirit in which they were made. Take responsibility for your actions; be accountable and no matter how much shit you catch for it, you will still be able to sleep better at night.

Only you can make you happy. You can be given the world on a string, but if your mind isn’t right, not even an injection of pure bliss will make you smile. Hmm, perhaps happiness should be added to that list of illusions. Nah, emotions are truly our own. They may be interrupted or influenced, but they can never be taken away.

Utilize your time wisely. Don’t waste something so precious as your time. Make the most of everyday; you never know when it will be your last. More than that, don’t waste the time of others. You don’t want someone’s dieing thought to be: “If only I had back that two hours that I spent listening to so and so complain about the quality of the shirts she encountered at the Penny’s super clearance sale.”

I thought it was "keep your friends close and your enemies closer."


Though, I totally understand wanting to stay as far away from them as humanly possible.
