wisdom shared

It's that time of year when we all contemplate where we've been, realize we've fallen far short of where we want to be and begrudgingly resolve to make ourselves better people.  

an email regarding inner peace came to me this morning while i was doing just that and it was exactly what i needed. bless Dr. Phil
you may have received the same email, but in case you haven't i share it here because i am a firm believer that wisdom gained means nothing if it is never shared.
Eoli, 
This morning I heard Dr Phil say; "The way to achieve inner peace is to finish all those thing you have started but have never finished." So I figured no time like the present and made a list of all those things I had started this month but never got around to finishing...
and, damn if I didn't think to myself; Best Friend! YOU CAN DO THIS!
So, before I left for work this morning, I finished off that bottle of White Zinfandel I opened when you were here on the 8th, the rest of the bottle of Irish Cream, a half package of Oreos, the remainder of my Valium prescription, the rest of yesterdays cheesecake, some Doritos - stale but still not bad - a box of chocolates, and a half bottle of scotch (ick! remind me never to buy that crap again).

But Eoli, I just had to share this with you and you have to do this too, because girl, you have no idea how freaking good I feel right now!

  1. Never start anything you don't plan to finish. In fact, better still, never start anything. You can never be sure what will happen next.
