63: 62 | Things about life I have read and firmly believe in... 1. While you're on your way to "wonderful," you have to pass through "alright". Stop-- take a look around and get comfortable with it, cause this may be all you get. 2. This may not be the party you wanted, but as long as you're here you might as well dance! 3. When I get to my grave I don't want to go quietly with a perfect body...I want to slide in sideways skid to a stop completely exhausted, yelling..."Wow,-what a ride!" 4. When things go wrong in life., remember to always fix the problem,not the blame. 5. Above all else, don't forget to laugh and laugh often... especially at yourself!!
