Good times become good memories and bad times become good lessons.
Social media should be added to the list of addictions.
If I find my groove this weekend, I will most likely take a months' leave on social media in order to surrender to a made-up world.
Taking a social media break this weekend so I can hear and feel what my characters are thinking, feeling and doing. It's a writer's world.
Give everything you do everything you've got. Yes, it's a cliche.
Detroit was once the 4th largest city in the U.S. Now it's 18th and bankrupt. The Motor City is on E. Shameful.
Anything worth doing should be a challenge. It's what makes us better at it.
Sometimes, we have to learn how to acknowledge the difference between bullshit and what's worth fretting over. Do it quickly.
A lot of us are much stronger than we give ourselves credit for.
Let the life and legacy of Nelson Mandela supercharge us to do better and be better at everything. Without complaining about how hard it is.
I can't believe it's Friday already again.
"...opinion-makers and everybody is stretched across the great divide, trying to unite the nation." - Nelson Mandela
"I am nearing my end. I want to be able to sleep until eternity with a broad smile on my face, knowing that the youth..."
Some people make us stronger. Especially when we are able to see how much they have overcome.
Goodbye Mr. Mandela. You have left a hole in the world where you continuously filled it with grace, dignity and forgiveness. Thank you.

Don't just preach your gospel to your children. Ask them what they think. And how they feel about anything & everything. And listen to them.
Parents can screw kids up more than anybody. And most of them are too blind to see it. Or, too dumb to realize it.
Have a fuzzy-wuzzy Wednesday night everybody. Dream in chocolate.
You cannot be a perfect parent. But you can be a good one.
Your children cannot compensate for nor makeup for their parents' shortcomings. They are not little automatons.
Trying to create perfect kids is impossible.
There is such a thing as over-parenting. And it usually shows in how the children behave. They're the victims, however.
Too many parents today worship their children. It's kind of sad and yet pathetic.
I do, however, feel sorry for spoiled kids who think they need to be the center of attention and are jealous of others when they get it.
Babysat last night for 3 1/2 yr old great nephew for 4 hours. He was so much fun. I never knew train puzzles & fishing could be this fun!
It's sad when your best isn't good enough. But be mindful about who is doing the judging.
Be a sugar or chocolate chip cookie today. But consider, oatmeal raisin, since you'll be the picture of pseudo health.
I don't believe in discounts. It's still enough for the vendor to make a profit.
I'm glad Black Friday and Cyber Monday are done. It's such a major gimmick to get you to spend on what you really can't afford.
It is possible to make sense of your past by acknowledging the impact it's having on your present.
It is okay to walk out of someone's life if you don't feel like you belong in it anymore.

Ikea always has the most attractive customers walking around its showroom, but if you take them home I bet they're hard to reassemble.
Most of the time, it's right in front of you.
Be smarter than you think.
Try, when possible, to surround yourself with good people, smart people, honest people, positive & warm people, and filter the rest out.
I cannot believe it, but I'm actually starting to like basketball.
I wonder should WTF count? LOL
Starting this week, I'm going to try not to use the "F" word. It rolls off my tongue too much. I use it as a verb, adjective & adverb. Bad.
You can't always get what you want. But when you do, don't assume you got lucky. Sometimes you earn it. Or, it was your time.
I'm so tired of ugliness which is why I'm writing about beauty.

Any familial altercations this weekend should be overlooked. Blame it on the alcohol. Or just evil relatives who can't help it.
