Living and Learning…A few random thoughts August 17, 2011

Things I’m Learning…

A few things I’ve picked up over the years, and a few stolen quotes that say it all… (all jumbled into one random list…sorry for the scatterbrainedness in this post…my mind is all over the place today lol)

  • We are entitled to free speech only when that speech doesn’t offend anyone else, the same goes for having one’s own opinion
  • If you wouldn’t say or do it in front of your spouse, don’t do it
  • If I pass on my beliefs to my children, beliefs that I get from the Bible, I am wrong in society’s eyes
  • Van Wilder was right, ‘Worrying is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to do, but doesn’t get you anywhere
  • While agreeing to disagree is one of the best ideas out there, adults have just as hard of time with this concept as little kids do
  • Adults are just children who know more ways to call you a cootie filled butt head
  • ‘How are you?’ is a greeting not a question…no one really cares [I’m talking to you grocery store check out clerk!!]
  • NOTHING good comes from quiet kids!
  • Celebrate the small victories!!!!
  • Never pray for anything for yourself…pray for guidance and give thanks for all you have instead. Prayer feels so much better when not begging God for things!
  • It’s okay to be done with someone…no hard feelings or mean words/thoughts necessary, just done…we are adults…life’s too short to spend it surrounded by people who erk you
  • For some reason people think they are entitled to anything they want, from respect to a hand out….I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…If you didn’t earn it, you don’t deserve it, and you certainly aren’t entitled to it
  • ‘Love the life you live, and live the life you love’ – okay I stole this one…not sure where it came from but it’s a good thought!
  • ‘A man’s gotta know his limitations’ Clint Eastwood – this works with anything in one’s life
  • Bob Dylan really is right ‘All I can be is ME, whoever that is!’
  • And lastly, to quote myself, {don’t laugh} ‘No matter how much crap the day throws at you, it will keep going, so I will keep going, knee deep in dookie and kicking ass the whole way’ – Basically, no matter how you feel the day keeps going, might as well attempt to make the best of it 😉

    I’m not sure where the two pictures of quotes came from originally…I *Think* it was from a background app, not 100 % sure though….Sorry!
