What I've Learned

1.Pain is Mind over matter, take it out of your mind and soon it won't matter.

2.I finally understand that a Bird in one hand is truly worth two in the bush.

3.I was alone a lot when I was a child....Probably why I have such an imagination and appreciation for a good story!

4.We've let the concept of the Renaissance man die out. We don't really tell the kids that it's okay to bounce around the world, work odd jobs, and do six different things when they are still young and single.

5. I’ve always liked the idea of walking into a  party where there are all kinds of different people and finding some connection with almost everybody in the room..That's the essence of who I really am. "Mr. Personality", one of my teachers used to call me.

6.My Mother taught me a value that I treasure to this day....To work smart and not waste time..

7.If God has given you a gift...It's an insult to act as though it's your achievement!

8.Marriage has taught me how to fight...I mean...People who live together get into arguments. When you're younger, those arguments tend to escalate, or there's not any wisdom that overrides the argument to keep things in perspective. Shit tends to get out of hand. When you're older, you realize, "Well, this argument will pass. We may not agree, but this is not the end of the world." Experience comes into play then...For the record....I don't argue with my wife!  I was just saying...

9.It's a devine accident that any of us are on this Earth...Living and existing at this time....I'm humbled when I think of it all!

10. I've made a lot of mistakes in life...Some on purpose...but I don't live in my past...Who I was is not who I am today!


Peace!
