New Rules

New Rules:

Do not put energy into things where there is no return.

In matters of duty at the moment, do the bare minimum
where there is no return.

See things for what they really are, not what you want them to be.

There are people out there that would like to see you stay
exactly where you are because of their own insecurities
and fears. not ok, have as little investment
and interaction with these people as possible. If you
have to be around them on a daily basis, IGNORE THEM.

Accept reality, embrace logic.

The solutions you come up with are sometimes
not the only solutions. There is not always an
A or B solution. Sometimes the universe has
a solution that you cannot see at the moment.

Never, never, let someone else steal your thunder,
or your sense of well being.

Do not bet on outside sources or other people
for circumstances to change or to “rescue” you
from your situation. Sometimes you
have to take the bit out of your own mouth, if someone
else or you have put it there, or take matters into
you own hands for change.

You may have to be temporarily uncomfortable
if you want change and to make a better life
for yourself.

If all else fails, remember, in the words of the
great Muppets, “Minah~Minah”, Sometimes
this can get you through the day.

An End To Providence

I can no longer rely on providence
my old friend
sometimes it gets so hot
under this big sun
that you just have to put on
your bathing suit
plug your nose
and jump in
to cool off
and you swim to
the bottom for a while
in the deep end
like when you were a kid
and just sit there
and it's quiet
just you and the water
and everything looks different
from down there
until you can breath air again
and come up to the surface
cool and refreshed.
