You’re not responsible for everybody in the world. You’re really not.
We all have different personalities that we show different people at different times. Some personalities are zealous (“just right”); others are overzealous (“too hot”); some are under-zealous (“too cold”). It’s not possible, important, productive, or realistic to behave in the same way with everyone because not everyone knows us in the same way. But it IS imperative that loving-kindness and respect for all people be incorporated into whichever personality that shows up.
Mean what you say, and say what you mean. Follow through.
Don’t fight progress even when it looks like regression.
Sometimes, life is not about change, but rather, just keeping things just as they are.
Let’s please not wait until somebody dies to praise them, celebrity or otherwise.
Anyone who really knows you — really loves you.
There ain’t one dang thing you gotta’ do to earn the Love of Heaven. That true, most unconditional kind of Love is already yours.
Some dreams take a little longer to come true. And that’s ok because life really is about the journey and not the destination.
Bring peace to every situation by bringing your smile.
Don’t wait for others to praise those you love so it’s “safer” for you to praise them, too. Instead, you do the praising first.
Laugh WITH yourself, not at yourself — and don’t let anybody give you any malarkey.
Hold your tongue — and instead, smile. Because you know you’re the cool cat with the canary.
Be real — but with sugar on top. Be nice — the kind of person someone wants to have coffee with.
Embrace the carefree spirit.
All that stuff about how crying makes a man a weak? BALONEY! Not only do your tears make you strong — they make you a man, Dude!
Beige and Black — always a workable fashion statement. You can’t go wrong.
When someone jokes with you, that means they like you. It’s a good thing. They’re taking time to kid you because they care.
Any true romance, friendship, or business partnership blossoms over time. Not overnight.
You may want to be a star. But you already are a star in the eyes of those who love you.
