Well, as I celebrate my twenty-seventh year on spaceship Earth, I thought I should acknowledge that milestone here. Last night a friend made me write down some of the lessons/rules of life that I've learned in that time, and they seem worth recording.
- Always tell the truth and always seek the truth, no matter what.
- Heart comes before mind.
- Don't sweat the big stuff or the small stuff. The best outcome will prevail.
- Assume that people are acting out of good intentions until they show otherwise.
- Make no small plans.
- Don't be reckless with other people's lives/hearts/minds/spirits.
There ya go. Words to live by. Well...they're working okay for me, anyway.
