Well, this will evolve more in the coming days... For starters, how about this:
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...
No, not at the same time. It was one, then it became the other. Luckily, the pendulum is swinging back. Don't let it hit you, those things are heavy.
But really, the question is- To be, or not to be?
I choose to be. Or is it 2b? Sometimes I wish life was multiple choice.
But usually not. There wouldn't be enough choices.
When I say "to be", it's kind of like "to be all you can be."
Except not the way the army means it- though they do some cool stuff!
Strive to reach your potential, but relax a little, too.
Make things happen. Don't just watch.
Life isn't fair. You can't change this.
You can't win them all. That wouldn't be fair, anyway.
Plan the best you can. Chance favours the prepared mind.
Be flexible, because circumstances change. Sometimes when you least expect.
Don't bother trying to expect the unexpected. It's rarely successful.
Venture a guess, if nothing else. Don't be afraid to be wrong, or to look foolish. This is easier if you simply accept that you already look foolish, and that probably no one cares.
Don't make fun of others when they look foolish. Making fun of yourself is okay, though.
Laugh, at yourself, and at the world, but remember- in reality, it's a very serious place.
Don't take yourself too seriously. Yeah, I struggle with this at times!
And remember, life is short. So make sure you enjoy what you're doing at least most of the time.
