What I've Learned


1. Sometimes, the thing you think is tying you down is the thing that ultimately liberates you.

2. You are basically born alone... and you die just as alone too. People may be in the room for both events... but in the end, just as the beginning, it's something that only you and you alone are experiencing at the moment!

3. I like listening to everybody, even if I don't agree with them. I love an exchange of ideas... just listening to all of my viewpoints is boring!

4. I've come to see each day as a new adventure... a new chapter... regardless of how uneventful the day may turn out to be.

5. Depression may be a luxury that I can't afford.

6. We cannot live in a constant rebellion against our parents... after a certain age, it looks silly.

7. Liberals don't have to put the word "compassionate" in front of their title the way some conservative candidates do to prove (I guess) that they actually give a damn about people.

8. You are never as great as people say you are... but on the other hand, you're not as bad as they say you are either.

9. I worked in a shoe store once, selling shoes to women, and one thing I learned... practically all women lie about their shoe size!

10. My grandfather told me, "Don't waste your life baby. Whatever it is you want to do, do it. Don't get old and have regrets. I don't know if he was just giving me advice or if he was talking about himself... but I tell you what, I've always heeded his advice. I've tried to do most of what I've wanted to do!

Peace!

Hahaha @ women lie about their shoe size. I like my toes too much to lie about that. These feet are not going in a pair of too little shoes.
