Things I Was Taught
Children are to be seen and not heard – this one worked to my advantage most of the time. I sure heard some interesting stuff as a kid.
Look but don’t touch.
Don’t show up somewhere uninvited.
Being bored is not an option and work is mandatory. There is no excuse for lazy.
Playing outside was also not an option. You came in when you were told to and not before unless there was spurting blood.
Give your boss $2.00 worth of work for every dollar he gives you.
Understand that your boss will probably not recognize that you give more than he pays for.
Always return what you borrow. And, if you break it – fix it or replace it.
Don’t come to resent the people who have been kind enough to lend something to you.
Forgive and forget and if others can’t do the same for you, move on.
Be yourself, someone will like you for it – most will not…deal with it.
Allow yourself to be “emptied” at the end of each day so that you can be “refilled” the next.
Respect all living things particularly those that are little, old or depend on man for their survival.
Just because you have an opinion on something doesn’t mean it HAS to be expressed.
Allow others the respect of their opinions whether you agree or disagree.
All conflicts could be ended by one single person deciding to give up power and control.
And certainly not least…realize God is driving your life, you are only a passenger. Try not to jerk the steering wheel out of His hands…you will wind up in the ditch.
