iconDon’t Say too Much

There are always times in our lives when we wished we had said less and done more, or simply just not have opened our mouths to begin with. There is a quote than hangs on my sister’s fridge, “Speak in anger and you will give the best speech you will even regret,” or something to that effect.

iconWhy do we Complicate Life?

Life is not that hard. It really isn’t, and there really isn’t much to it once you understand what’s worth doing and not doing. ┬áSomeone once told me that they base their decision on a simple preliminary check: If things make them feel gross or badly then they shouldn’t do them.

As we learn how to do new things they by nature become less and less difficult. Walking, riding a bicycle, reading, mathematics are all examples of things, that will practice we can achieve with relative ease. I’ve recently been trying to teach myself new things that I once thought were difficult, and I’m finding they’re still difficult.

iconWe Only get one Shot, but Many Chances

Tonight I had the opportunity to be reminded of how important life is, and it’s not how long we live, but what we do when we are here. The story of the death of someone in their 90s was related to me by and acquaintance, a very miraculous story really, and it made me aware of an innate ability we all have.
