How simple our lives would be if everything we thought, or did that was stupid or unwarranted … we could just move to the trash.

I’m prone to offering unsolicited advice, or, at the very least, an unwanted bit of wisdom …” Why, you may ask?”

My reply may go something like this:

“On one hand, being I’ve been around the block a time or two, and I don’t exactly know what you may need, although my experience wasn’t exactly the same as yours, maybe this will work for you.” …

….Silence…

“Well, just listen to what I’ve got to say, and then you can see if it makes sense?…

… Silence … “No thanks, I’ll handle it.”

” No, I’m sure I can help!!”

———-

Odd, I hate it when people do that to me. I don’t know why I have such a hard time “zipp’n my lip?’  Do you think it comes with age and you are really trying to help, or, is it just your ego gett’n in the way? I remember when I was a bit younger than now, I wanted to find my own way … be it good, bad or ugly. Even today, I still use the ol’ allege … If it doesn’t kill ya, it’ll just make you stronger.

I hope I’ll get out of this “habit” soon.

But, until I do … I guess I’ll just havta continue …. tak’n my ego and mov’n it to the trash!!!!!!

Thanks for stop’n and read’n my ramblings!!

Bye! Bye!

I went for a walk and decided …. sometimes I’m so full of bull-crap. I don’t  plan to suffer this ailment long. maybe it’s one of them 24 hr. things. Maybe???

So, with that piece of world breaking news… I’m outa here!

Think I’ll go fishing in the morn … that’ll make it all more better.

It could be that “extra” large full-moon tonight?

I Hope!!

Bye, now! … Till later!!

May is upon us, and with that annual fifth month of the calendar year comes reality check for many. It’s graduation time; and whether it be highschool college, or grad-school, the clock starts ticking. You’ll walk out of that hall, or off that field, with a piece of paper in the left hand and a quarter in the right. The left hand indicates how others measure you. The right hand holds the truth.

Are you as accomplished as others say? Or, are you here to fish or cut bait? Are you a Noun or an adjective? Such small questions. Such big answers.

What they don’t tell you when you enter the academic fray is there are only so many top dog spots. Along the way, if you paid attention, read the writing on the wall, listened to people who had a bit more experience at life than you, chose the right mentor, walked the true path, … then the reality you’re about to experience will be a lot easier.

Do not fear the unknown. Acknowledge it, and it will serve you well. Ignore it, or don’t give it it’s due respect, … tears will fall.

———————–

With that small piece of advice (not meant to scare you, just some added motivation for the journey thru the badlands)

I believe, I and everyone else, who are not taking part in one of the most important moments in your life, wish you only the best in the future endeavors you embark upon. Life can be so good, make the most of it and prosper.

The Best Of Luck To You All.

Thanks for stopping bye, and don’t forget to wave!!!!!!

Was I that filled with “attitude” all those years ago? Maybe so, it escapes me … I am however – trying to remember. How to be away from home – the first time ever, without anyone, to really tell you how to act when your backs against the wall, to show the world … how together your act really was; I am however trying – trying to remember.

Was I that filled with “conviction” all those years ago? Maybe so, it escapes me … I am however – trying to remember. How to escape a past – I wanted so badly, to leave behind, to act like that part of me never happened, to show my peers … this is me – now; I am however trying – to remember.

Was I that filled with “stance” all those years ago? Maybe so, it escapes me … I am however – trying to remember. How did I compete with my academic brothers and sisters – the same caliber as me, or better, or educationally smarter, or with money to spend … can I fit to; I am however trying – trying to remember.

Was I that filled with “doubt” all those years ago? Maybe so, it escapes me … I am however – trying to remember. How did I bring myself to level – to walk down the pavilion and a few people call out to me, or invite me to “pal” with them – to the afternoon game; I am however trying – to remember.

Was I filled with “alone” all those years ago? Maybe so, it escapes me … I am however – trying to remember. How did I release myself from that “silence” – to be among the living, to not be scared to let go that “shell” – I was caught in; I am however trying – trying to remember.

——————

I do remember, how it was all those years ago. I empathise … however, I feel no sympathy.

I want to tell my much younger peers how tough life can really be, that their time here in educational “pergatory” should be some of the greatest times ever. Take this time to live, laugh, love, learn and have a bigtime – do not, however, dishonor themselves or the people that care for them.

Thats what I want to tell’m!

But, maybe … ignorance is bliss!  “Yes, it probably is!”
