I ask this today, because a friend of mine was complaining about how they would like to go back to when they were 18.
I do not want to go back, I was very short-sighted, closed-minded, and I will admit a bit of a racist. No, I did not belong to the KKK or the Aryans, but I did not feel the way I do now.
I am not proud of the way I acted back in those days.
I am happy with myself and my ideals today.
I guess you could say I was reborn in the 80’s I changed my thoughts on a lot of things.
I have changed a lot again in the last couple of years and I really feel for the better.
If you have the desire to become a better person, you have to keep re-evaluating yourself.
I am not saying you have to live your life for others, but think about what you say, who you are, and how you effect other people’s opinions of you. Stop judging other people and judge yourself.
I know I am lot happier as a person, sure my personal life is in disarray, with being unemployed long-term, but that is just a new challenge for me to overcome, and I am confident I will. This experience in my life will help continue to make me a better person.
I know that no matter what happens I will have my wife, my family, and my friends, even though we might not always agree, I value and respect their opinions.
So next time you have a few minutes think about yourself and what you are doing, get deep down inside yourself. Are you really having a positive impact on other people, I try to do my best, I am not perfect, and I have a very long way to go, I doubt I will ever reach that goal, but it is still worth setting it.
Well friends that is all for today
As Always Rusty Loves you!
