New Year, Old School…

Happy New Year!

Hey y’all, it’s the New Year and, as far as I can figure, the perfect time to enter the world of blogging. I figure it’s kind of somewhere in between fogging and jogging (two things I’m pretty decent at doing on a regular basis) so I thought I’d give it a try. Feel free to comment, I promise I won’t get pissed if I don’t like what you say.

Anyhoo, I thought I’d start things off not with a list of resolutions (which, from my experience, typically last for 30 days at most) but with something a bit different. As I begin the New Year and ring in the blogosphere, I thought I’d share a bit of “What I’ve Learned” with you.

So, as JFK said in his Inaugural Address “All this will not be finished in the first one hundred days. Nor will it be finished in the first thousand days, nor in the lifetime of this administration, nor even perhaps in our lifetime on this planet. But let us begin.”


What I’ve Learned (v.1.0)
You’ve got to fuel the machine…junk in equals junk out.
When you are in a wheelchair, even if you can push marathons or cycle hundreds of miles, life boils down to a matter of inches. That stinkin’ curb might as well be Mt. Everest and gravity just isn’t your friend.
There’s nothing like putting your feet on the bed, laying down and stretching out at the end of the day. It’s a great feeling to have the blood work its way back to where it belongs.
A good friend of mine recently told me to smile and say “hi” to strangers. You never know if it will make your day or theirs but it’s a great way to connect. She was right. Try it, you might agree, too.
Fresh air and sunshine will help cure almost anything.
Do one thing every day that scares you. And never be afraid to try something new.
There’s no escape from life. Solve the problem and get on with it.
If you watch more than three TV shows a week, you need to be doing more with your life.
No one ever learned anything by talking.
When the soup is good, all is good!

Be well.
