Triumph And Disaster (‘those two imposters’)

I quit looking for perfection.

Competing for success sucks when it costs you good people.

No amount of material gain makes up for pain and suffering or harm to myself or others.

I like keeping my small failures and small successes.

I’m not looking for a ditch to lay down in or some golden ring that makes me a winner.

To build a relationship with myself and others, is all about learning from success and failure, to correct my mistakes and make a life while adjusting to changes.

I believe in keeping my stuff small and manageable and building on a good foundation in all my affairs.

Kipling said it best “If you can meet with triumph and disaster and treat those two imposters just the same.”

Inside The Mind Of A Seven Year Old Gerbil Owner

When I got my tonsils out, I blacked out in the hospital, but I got jello and ice cream.

My ear ache was really soar, but my mom brought in a warm hot water bottle and a nice towel to heat my ear and help me sleep.

I liked the bike my dad bought me for my birthday.

My dad and I like to go fishing.

My mom likes to watch me eat my lunch.

But I miss my gerbil.

Living The Good Life

I reflect upon good and bad and properly use these impressions,

Command my will,

Some say, I have consciousness.

Understand and know, I am conscious.

Shame not consciousness or do it harm,

Here is my strength: I can get what I want and avoid what I don’t want, use the proper impulse, a careful purpose, use a studied assent.

This is my job: to practice living ‘the good life’.
