It would appear that I have some things to work on this year.
1. CARE LESS -- about things that don't matter or don't make you feel good.
2. CARE MORE -- about the things that do matter.
3. CHANGE IS GOOD -- resist the natural urge to fight it. Instead, try to remember that almost every great thing in your life started with an unexpected change that you initially may not have wanted.
4. SURROUND YOURSELF -- with good people who gives you good vibes. Get away from those who don't.
5. COMPARING YOURSELF -- to others is useless and exhausting. Someone else's story will never be your own.
6. CONTROL -- what you can. Let go of what you can't.
7. NO ONE -- has it all figured out. Some people are just better at faking it.
8. ORDINARY PEOPLE -- create awesome shit every day. Why not you?
9. LESS EXCUSES, MORE DOING -- If you spent even half as much time working as you do complaining, you probably wouldn't have much to complain about.
10. LISTEN -- to that nagging voice inside you, urging you to take that leap.
11. THE UNIVERSE -- doesn't hoard success. Neither should you.
12. HANGING ON -- to anger and jealousy is like walking around with hot coal in your hands. By the time you find the person you want to throw it at, you're the only one that's been burned.
13. PEOPLE -- don't just "get their moment". They work for it; and usually damn hard.
14. KICK YOUR EGO -- to the curb. It can hang out there with fear and doubt. They're all in the same annoying family anyway.
15. RIGHT NOW -- the biggest obstacle is yourself. But it doesn't have to be.
In the monotony of daily life, chasing after happiness can seem like an endless, really big project. And sometimes, it is. But sometime...
Dear Max; We made it, Buddy! Happy 18th birthday! Do you feel any different than you did yesterday? Maybe you should. Today marks...
HEY, YOU. You are enough. That big dream you have, the one that seems far too big and bold and grand to ever really be ...
You take them both, and there you have the facts of life. :P (OK, enough reminiscing about my childhood TV habits.) Dear You, ...
