I have found that when in my younger years, if someone said, “Here, try this”–and it was not a yummy treat, it probably was not in my best interest.
Every challenge always pays off– Always. You just have to realize that in hindsight.
The things I thought made me feel cool then, often make me feel silly now.
I would have never gotten that perm if I could have seen my senior picture beforehand. (See previous.)
Some of your best friendships do not end–they go into hibernation.
Whatever people feel they need to take drugs for can be achieved without them.
The best title I have ever held is “Daddy.” (And that it took my wife to achieve this title–and still does.)
Upon reflection, when we say we were “born this way”– that should only pertain to the good stuff. The rest we learned.
Being a loser is someone else’s opinion that I do not have to agree with.
I can understand and be compassionate to something without agreeing with it.
Kids and golf can be the most fun you will ever have being pissed off.
God would never forsake me, I would forsake God. (God waited for my return.)
It is okay to love someone and they not love you back–just don’t do it on their property after dark.
I should have listened more to what I didn’t want to listen to.
I also should have kept my mouth shut a lot more.
Most of the worst stuff I feared I created. (Often it would never arrive.)
I see that most of the stuff that I spent most of my time trying to get; I no longer have, and no longer need.
I also see that most of what I ever needed was always there, I was too busy looking in the wrong places.
Love returns. (Not that it ever really goes away.)
You can’t be totally present always looking back in hindsight.
