    Default Does it really matter?

    Ask yourself this question:
    "Will this matter a year from now?"
    Richard Carlson, writing in Don't Sweat the Small Stuff

    How many times has something happened and it seemed to throw off your whole day? Well I had mine a few days ago. I let it really throw me off for a lot longer than I should have. If I had only stopped and said "will this really matter in a year?", then I might have gotten over it faster.

    You know what no one is perfect. No one. No matter how hard you might try to be or try to appear to be, you never will be. And pefection, that's a might tall order to try to live up to. Don't strive for perfection becuase you will always let yourself down. Instead strive to be the best you can at whatever you decide to do.

    I think this quote says it best:

    "Never be afriad to try, remember.....Amateurs built the ark, Professionals built the Titanic"
    -Author Unknown

    Live your life for you because in the end you are the one that has to live with your descisions anyway!

    Haters gonna hate is my line.

    It's works effectively both ways for me. It explains my eagerness to hate, and also explains why people begin to exert some hate on me.

    Let's make it SPARKLE!

    nice thoughts, trixie, thanks

    side comments:

    It wasn't the professional builders who doomed the titanic, it was the bean counters. They would not provide enough funding to make each compartment able to be sealed, going against the design plans. If they had built is as planned, it would not have sunk. But the guys obsessed with short-term capital gain were given too much power. It happens so often, you'd think we'd have learned this by now.

    Also, Utnapishtim’s Ark was built by drunken shipwrights, but the design was his own. He forced them to adhere to his designs. Here's a translation:

    So the real lesson is, don't give in to short-term capital gains.

    I don't think there has ever been any "haters" on these. They are great and someone poked fun at them. Far from hating... more like a satire of the original idea. imo.

    I dont think anyone ever said there were "haters" of this thread. (Sorry if I misread something)

    There are "haters" in life in gerneral that always try to bring you down and rain on your parade. This was never meant or directed at anyone. Sorry if anyone took it personally. It was never meant that way at all.
