Everyday above ground is a good day

We, as Americans need to quit being such fucking whiners.  I just realized over this weekend that we (or at least I) need to get back to basics.  Quit wanting every fucking thing that you don’t have.  Quit bitching and moaning about stupid shit.  Quit getting carried away and all mad when people in traffic don’t drive as fast as  you want them to or don’t drive as well as you want them to.  Stop for a second and think about a few things.  Are you healthy?  Is your family OK?  Have you spoken to God recently?  Have you read the Bible?  Do you own a Bible (if you don’t contact me and I’ll send you one)?  If you have children, are they healthy and happy?  Are you happy with what you have?  You should be.

I’m not saying that we shouldn’t strive to be better but holy shit do we as a society need to quit bitching about shit.  I fall into the same thing every now and then.  I want a better car or I want a bigger house or I want more knives, or more money or……whatever.  It’s useless.  We need to be happy with what we have at a given time.  Life is not a destination, it’s a journey.  We cannot keep saying “when I get (insert item here) I’ll be happy”.  That’s bullshit.  Everyone is trying to get to a destination so damn fast than nobody seems to stop and look at what’s around them or get to know people.  What happened to going for a hike in the woods and showing your kids about little animals or bugs?  Forget all this Playstation, XBOX, video game, texting crap.  Teach your kids useful stuff.  Heck turn off the TV for a week and read something or go outside.  Hike in the woods or at a local metro-park.

Did you wake up alive today?  Good, now go do something and quit bitching and complaining.  Fucking “Man up” and get shit done.  Stop procrastinating and “Just do it” (Thanks Nike).  Quit being so pissed off at other people for stuff.  Don’t worry about things you can’t change. Don’t even worry about stuff you can change.   Just change it.

90% of life is how you approach it and how you respond to things that happen to you.  The other 10% isn’t worth fretting over.
