#001 "Laughter is the best medicine. So, if you laugh at your problems or at least see the humor in them, they are then easier to overcome."
#002 “Stay persistent in all things. Everything worth anything takes time to build.”
#003 If I am worried about what the future holds, I need to slow my roll and concentrate on what's in front of me right now, today.
Today is now, and it's always today...If I go to sleep and wake up is it tomorrow? No, it becomes today.
So, it's always today, no matter what time it is or where I'm at. Today is all I have, tomorrow is a mystery, and yesterday is history.
#004 "I must always look at this process of growing and learning as a continuous life-long process, not as an event.And, Having a bad moment doesn't mean I am having a bad day."
#005 It's not about what I can get out of a situation, meeting or relationship; it's about what I can add to it."
#006 Today my wife and I were walking down the street and she pointed at a gorgeous house and commented, "Look, that's a nice house."
In my twisted perspective and warped perception, this is what I FELT like she said, "Oh, damn, look at that! Now, I'd sleep with whoever owns that house, because it's much nicer than the one we live in. That house makes ours look like rhinoceros snot!"
#007 "I don't judge people by what I think they should be doing or by how I would have done it. I judge people by the effort they put into what ever it is they're doing. If they could have done better...they would have.
When I do something, if I don't give it my all, then according to my own judging guidelines I have set myself up to fail or at least fall short of my potential...and people will notice it. Most of all...I will know it."
#008 "I was judging me by my intentions while the world was judging me by my actions."
#009 “Barak Obama won my vote from the first time I heard him utter a word. I liked what I heard...and he's Black to the bone. You can't be Black in America and not be Black in America...you know what I mean? O.J. found that out, as did Michael Jackson. Serena and Venus Williams found that you can't be Black in the world and not get treated Black in the world. It's a cold game...racism, and Black's are the last to play it but the first to feel it's sting all over the planet. I don't play the Race Card...I AM the Race Card, and I'll be damned if I get played!”
