One of my best friends sent me this link yesterday. It's awesome.
Work hard, take care of you and yours, and don't assume that the world owes you anything. Isn't that the key? We must depend on ourselves. So turn off those "reality" television shows and get to work!
Sorry if this sounds harsh. Just sayin.'
And at the same time as all of the above... be nice. Try to leave the world a little better than you found it. Don't leave messes for others to clean up. That's all for today...
