Buy the expensive whiskey

Time will pass. The things we worry about will pass. Some of the things we want desperately will come our way, and some will not. Things we aren’t worrying about will blindside us and leave us temporarily devastated, this too will pass. The good is never as good as we imagine, and the bad is never as bad as we fear. Our health may hold, it may not. We may have 50 years ahead of us, we may cease to exist before the day closes.

We have to make decisions we can live with, whether others understand them or not. Let one of these decisions be to buy the good whiskey. Trust me, there is a difference. When your days are gone, know you’ve helped others…but also done a few things for yourself.

Learn to run in the rain

Bad day? Bad week? Can’t get a break in the clouds?

Life is not about the perfect days, it’s about learning to run in the rain. I know this isn’t a new quote or saying, but it deserves consideration.

If we spend our lives only appreciating the perfect moments, only making decisions when the outcome is certain, only doing things we already know we enjoy…we miss what life is about.

Don’t hide from the rain, step out into it and let it wash away the mediocrity the world forces upon you.
