Lessons I’ve Learned in my Life

Stop and smell the flowers. It really will make ya feel better.

If ya keep looking back, you are gonna run into something in front of ya. Be aware of what is behind ya, but keep your focus forward.

It’s true. The very best things in life, really are free.

If you try to explain to the officer that the light was NOT red, it was just a little pink, he is gonna crack up laughing, but he is still gonna give ya the ticket. The judge isn’t gonna fall for it either, so ya might as well go ahead and pay the stupid fine.

When the water is cold, sometimes ya just gotta close your eyes and jump in or you are gonna get stuck watching everyone else have fun.

Laugh more often, especially at the stupid things in life.

Someone once told me that the definition for insanity can be found in doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results. I do my best to keep this in mind with everything I do.

If you are going to love someone, do so with your whole heart.

It is easier to find tranquility in your heart if you live your life by the serenity prayer. Change the things ya can. Forget the things ya can’t change, and make dang sure ya know the difference between the two so ya don’t waste a lot of time.

Some people just weren’t meant to be city folks.

    The trees are in bloom all over the place here, so I couldn’t resist grabbing my camera and taking a few pictures. 🙂

    Wow! What a beautiful shot Cricket!

    “Good things come to those who wait.” Sometimes life really tries one’s patience if you try to follow that saying. Be strong, you’ll get there.

    May you find tranquility in your life soon my friend, you deserve it.

    No wonder I was getting it all wrong! I thought it was the senility prayer! To forget those things you changed that screwed up and to try to remember where I put my teeth or glasses.

    Anyone remember what I was doing?
