What I Learned in 2008

Now I have gone on record as saying that 2008 has been the worst year of my life. But I have not lost the lesson, so to speak. This time that I have spent alone in my funk has given me time to really think. To be honest, I am probably thinking too much. I live in my head more than I live in reality. Out of this, I have learned a few things about myself and life in general.

1. Life never goes as planned. No matter how much you will great things for yourself, it rarely works like that.

2. All you have is you.

3. You keep doing the same shit you get the same shit.

4. I am in charge of how I react. Others cannot make me feel a certain way but me.

5. Accept help. It's there for a reason.

6. As long as you live there will always be a tomorrow. That is a good news and the bad news.

None of these are particularly original nor is the language poetic. I have heard all of these numerous times. However, it only resonates when I have practical life experiences to back it up.
