“Everyone does it.”
“All politicians are corrupt.”
We keep hearing this broken record over and over and over and over and over and over and over. It’s getting tiresome. I’m sick of it.Read More
I wrote this up in about 20 minutes. I think it’s pretty good. What else would you add to the list?
The 10 Things I Like to Do:
I’d rather eat bratwurst and drink a beer in a mountain chalet at a ski resort with good friends, rather than dine at any “world-class” restaurant with a celebrity chef.
I’d rather read a good book, than go to a party.
I’d rather drive a reliable and comfortable car, than show off a car that brags about how much money I have.
I’d rather listen to music from the human heart and soul and real instruments, even with the mistakes, than any “perfect” sounds created by Autotune or electronic drum machines or anything else made by a computer program.
I’d rather try and then make some mistakes, than not try at all and make no mistakes.
I’d rather enjoy what I do for a living and look forward to going to work, rather than suffering through a lifetime of dread and being surrounded by people I don’t like and/or who don’t like me.
I’d rather stand up for what’s right and lose some friends and followers and even family members, rather than pretend political and social issues aren’t important.
I’d rather push some boundaries and occasionally do something out of character, rather than to always play it safe and wonder what it’s like to do something a little wild and crazy.
I’d rather have memories than possessions.
I’d rather be corrected and learn why I was wrong about something, rather than to go through my life isolated and ignorant.
Finally, I’d rather ask “why not” than “why?”Read More
