Hello my friends – musings, 6 am Sunday April 26, 2020
The #1 piece of advice I give young adults…when asked of course…is to remember that all decisions have consequences…one must put forth effort and thought when choosing….AND THEN ROLL WITH IT – HARD.
No looking back.
Such interesting times nowadays…what with the pandemic, our political foibles, etc…people expose themselves under times of duress, no doubt!
I try to live by this famous prayer:
“God grant me the Serenity
To accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And the Wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time.
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,
Taking this sinful world as it is,
Not as I would like it.”
WORDS TO LIVE BY, LADIES AND GERMS.
Now here is A WANDERING CAPITALIST’S pragmatic/actionable version of the Serenity prayer, courtesy of Naval Ravicant (best twitter follow in the universe BTW, @naval):
“Fast, lift, sprint, stretch, and meditate.
Build, sell, write, create, invest and own.
Read, reflect, love, seek truth, and ignore society.
Make these habits. Say no to everything else.
Avoid debt, jail, addiction, disgrace, shortcuts, and media.
Relax. Victory is assured.”
