    Take it one day at a time.

    Very simple but calms me down at some very difficult moments. And if that doesn't work, try an hour at a time. Or a minute!

    From my father. "There are only three fairs in

    life. The state fair, the county fair, and the city fair." Whenever I complained about fairness as a child. Hearing that everyday helped me cope with the bullshit that life dishes out as an adult.

    My mother told me this a lot

    as a teenager, "Never use absolutes in an argument because you will always be wrong". She is right there is always an exception and people will use that one exception to point out that you're wrong.

    Always make sure you understand what the person

    is saying to you and don't jump to conclusions as I did this tonight and luckily it has worked out well in the end as the person spoke to me.

    Keep Looking Where You Want to Go

    The best advice I ever got was from someone who wasn't really talking to me at the moment.  I was at a Skip Barber Racing School at Road America.  Their emphasis at Skip is on seeing the right line in a corner. Smoother is faster and car control is key. They always...

    This is odd, but the best advice I got was from

    a kid. She was just 14, not quite old enough to know the horrors of the world yet, but she was wise enough to see them coming. She was abused and belittled everywhere she went. The last day I saw her, she said this to me. Now I recite it every night before I go to bed. When I...

    While I was in college I studied a lot of

    depressing stuff. I read about how hard it was for Abe Lincoln battling depression and I read that he said, "People are as happy as they make up their minds to be." His quote helped get me through a lot of sad stuff on my life. People have a choice!
