If you’re like me….you’re still in a bit of shock after watching Anderson Cooper trying to swat away a long, slender yellow balloon with his well manicured hands being covered by a pair of leather gloves. I am strong. I am a Patriot. I will recover. I will face the challenges of a New Year and I offer three things I encourage you to do in YOUR New Year. I am not a smart man. I am one who has failed many times. It is from these failures that I offer the following advice:
TELL PEOPLE HOW YA FEEL AND NOT WHAT THEY WANT TO HEAR
Probably the best piece of advice I can give anyone. We aren’t trying to win an election. We aren’t trying to make friends. We must embrace our feelings. We must be honest. It’s the ONLY way we can grow and learn.
SEE A PIECE OF SHIT IN THE ROAD…WALK AROUND IT AND NOT THROUGH IT
My late grandfather Czekalinski actually gave me this advice one summer afternoon while we were in a canoe in Hinkley, Ohio fishing for catfish and bluegill. We didn’t catch any fish but I did catch a golden piece of advice. There is a reason shit stinks. It’s to warn ya it’s coming so you can avoid it. Life is shitty at times. You’ll start to smell it coming. Alter your path and stay away from the approaching smell.
WHEN IN DOUBT….ALWAYS GO FOR THE GIRL WITH THE PONYTAIL COMING OUT OF THE BACK OF HER BASEBALL HAT
There’s a reason these ladies are always with a man at the bar. Simple supply and demand. The demand is high…..supply is low. See her out and alone don’t waste any time. Don’t let her get away. She truly is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Every day is a gift. Every day is an opportunity. We have a New Year. We have a new beginning. Will you join me this year in making it your mission to make it count? Happy New Year my friends.
