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.
Death. It encompasses so many emotions. Sadness, grief, anger and fear to mention a few. This past weekend I lost a dear friend to death as he passed away suddenly at the young age of fifty four. Ironically we had a conversation just three days before passing. We laughed at our differences in political beliefs, jointly expressed our distain for Anderson Cooper and had a conversation about death.
Three years ago this September I came as close to death as one can. I was in a coma for six days and being kept alive by a series of machines and cables. I saw things so beautiful and peaceful that there are no words to provide them justice. I am not penning this piece to urge you to go to church or sell all your belongings. I can tell you without doubt that are journey does not end here.
When we cry at death but to who are those tears actually flowing for? I know it is natural because one that you love and care for so much has left this level. IF only we had the strength and courage to know that we will see our dearly departed again on a level that is incomprehensible in our present world.
I am not a church goer or a bible thumper. I am just a regular guy that happened to see the next step in our journey that is truly amazing. This doesn’t mean we should live a care-free lifestyle. On the contrary we should take time to observe and listen. Don’t be so quick to get angry with someone you disagree with. Try to learn something new every day. I truly believe that life is quite similar to when you were in school. We are handed many challenges and hurdles every day that don’t make sense yet they all serve a purpose. It may take days, years or a lifetime to figure them out but the answer is there. You have to put aside your emotions and open your mind and heart and pray for understanding.
The test will end someday my friends and I believe with all my heart that is when we are ready for the next level. Take solace in your loss and heartfelt pain in knowing your loved one is in a much better place watching you as YOU learn what they already know. Thanks for reading and look for your lesson that will appear before you today.
