#162 Not Another "I Hated '09" Post

So '09 sucked for you. Grow up. The year was hard in Pennsyltucky too. Some life lessons come hard.

Don't sell your love to the highest bidder.
People say "I love you." as easily as they say "Pass the salt." Don't believe in Easy Love. Just because someone cares about the things you can do for them, that doesn't mean they care about you. They'll stop caring as soon as they stop profiting.

The other shoe always drops.
When you see the headlight at the other end of the tunnel, for God's sake, get off the tracks.

Genuine loyalty is given, not earned.
There are people out there who will stick with you through thick and thin - but they may not be the ones you expected.

Blood really is thicker than water.
When times are the hardest - when worse actally does come to worst - you find out that your family cares the most.

A drowning sage does not second guess the lifeboat.
It ain't the boat that got you here, and it ain't the boat you would choose, but sometimes you just have to climb in and start rowing.

Never argue with someone who buys their own bullshit.
There is nothing in the world as powerful as self-deception. You think you're helping them to see things as they are. You're not. Let life teach them what they need to know.

You do as you feel, but you feel as you think.
Actions are reflexive responses to emotion. Emotions are logical responses to thoughts. If I think you are dangerous, I'll be afraid. If I think you are fascinating, I'll be curious. If I think I'm a loser, I'll despair. If I think I'm a student, I'll move on to my next lesson.

You have no idea how much people care for you.
There are people willing to help, to stand beside you. To be there. There are people who think better of you than you think of yourself. Whether you are at your lowest or at your best, there are people who suffer and rejoice right along side you. No matter what. Love these people with all your heart. They are your friends.

Wishing you peace and prosperity in 2010...
