    Some days you end it with exhaustion and the lack of ability to think one more intelligent though.
    So, a new day starts and its time to embrace a new thought. A new wisdom.

    With a hot cup of coffee in hand and inspiration for a new day I leave you with this.

    People are always judging each other and, the truth is, they're not very good at it. Don't put a lot of concern into what people think of you. You weren't created to please and entertain everyone. You were created to be you.

    One of my favorite quotes from Maya Angelou
    "You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them."

    Share some of your morning coffee wisdom. :popcorn:

    One more because I got caught up in Maya Angelou's morning words.

    "The need for change bulldozed a road down the center of my mind."

    One of my favorite quotes is:
    "The world smells different to a midget."

    Think on that for awhile.

    I've found this to be true but worry less about that than sharp table corners. I take helmet threads seriously.

    I introduced my young nieces to important philosophy on Saturday night babysitting duty movie night. I was able to deploy the philosophy lessons as they fought and niggled on the Sunday.



    Be excellent to each other.....and party on dudes!

    One of my favorite quotes is from Mark Twain
    "It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt."
    They are words of wisdom and should be followed by all that post on the internet.

    also from Mark Twain

    “When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years.”

    New wisdom
    If its important enough to you, you'll find a way.
    If its not, you'll find an excuse.

    I remember even as a kid thinking that Kenny Rogers' "The Gambler" was full of life wisdom if you took gambling as a metaphor . . . I still do.



    Know when to hold em
    Know when to fold em
    Know when to walk away
    and know when to run.

    If you want to know how well your skis perform airborne by themselves, put them down next to some untended locals' skis in the Collins line on a powder day before opening.

    Worrying does not stop bad things from happening, it stops you from enjoying the good things.
