I Read Something Similar To This Recently, But Thought The Wording Needed Tweaking

February 2, 2023

When you’re ready to change your life (even if you don’t feel ready), you’ll find a way. If you’re not ready, you’ll find an excuse.

The Way It Was Explained To Me

December 5, 2022

I was planning to write something lighthearted this morning, but then I saw in the news about someone accidently shooting their roommate because he pointed a gun he was “sure” was unloaded at him and pulled the trigger.

Yeah . . .

Look, here’s a little public service announcement:

Never, and I mean never, point a firearm at anything you want to keep! I don’t care if the safety is on. I don’t care if your finger is nowhere near the trigger. I don’t care if it’s unloaded. Do NOT point a weapon anywhere unless you are one hundred percent prepared for it to fire in that direction!

Make Your “Reality” Your Own

October 14, 2022

And to wrap this week up with thoughts inspired by this thought, here’s one more:

Just because it was the “reality” of your parent(s), or the reality of your sibling(s), or even your “reality” in the past, it doesn’t have to be your “reality” now or in the future.

And Nobody Ever Concedes When It Comes To What They Consider Reality

October 13, 2022

As a follow-up thought to the other day’s thought though, this applies to other people as well, so do your best to remember this the next time you consider arguing with somebody. The point you want to argue may only be “reality” to you, but it may well be REALITY as far as they’re concerned.

And Even If You’re Not Sole Author, You Can Still Change The Story

October 11, 2022

Every once in a while, I get a reminder of just how much of what we tell ourselves is our “reality” is actually little more than the story we’re just telling ourselves in our head.

So If You’re ANYWHERE Along The Path, Be Prepared

September 27, 2022

As I sit here with little else to do today but watch the path of the storm, I find myself considering just how deeply inland it looks like this one is going to be going. While obviously the coastal regions are going to be hit the hardest, I remember being inland and without power for two days in the wake of a storm smaller than this one because the city infrastructure simply wasn’t prepared for such conditions.

As Quickly And Calmly As Possible

September 26, 2022

In all of human history, I doubt there has ever been a disaster so big that there wasn’t at least one person that “didn’t see what the big deal is.”

Don’t be that person, and if they tell you to evacuate, do yourself and your family a favor and evacuate!

Advice Worth Repeating

September 20, 2022

It’s been said before, but the words you say in anger are the same words that are remembered long after your anger is gone.

Because They’re Not Fighting For Fun, They’re Fighting For Their Life

September 2, 2022

It’s been said, “Don’t pick a fight with an old man. If he’s too old to fight, he’ll just kill you.”

This can also be true of someone smaller than you and someone more scared of you than you are of them.

You can offend or you can change minds, but you can’t do both at the same time. Choose wisely.
