What I've Learned



1. At some point in your life you realize it is about you!

2. Everybody wants the world to reflect their reality. What if you're crazy?

3. I don't have a lot of big regrets but, I got little regrets that are killing me.

4. If I took the time to try and figure out my motivation for everything I did, I wouldn't have completed a thing!

5. My mother never allowed me to feel sorry for myself or to brood over anything too long. She said that once something was over and done with, pick yourself up and move on. That's how I learned to deal with adversity.

6. Never get romantically involved with anyone who has more issues than you do!

7. News is what somebody somewhere doesn't want you to know... everything else is just advertising.

8. You never begin a new life, you just continue your current life.

9. At some point in life, you realize it ain't about you!

10. If we realized how short and fragile life really is, perhaps we'd be a little nicer to each other.

You said it all right there. It's a shame that it always takes death to make us live. Hopefully, we'll all start doing and living better.

Love to live; live to love!
