    Got a life's tip? Post it here. Can be humorous or serious.


    I'll start.

    Take B-complex vitamins.

    Forgive yourself for your past mistakes.

    Suck it up, buttercup.

    Do at least one thing everyday that is a gift to your future self.


    I am in philosophical mode and have also posted this on one of my blogs. Be forewarned, anything posted here that I really like will also be transferred to said blog. And if it's really, really good; I'll even include a link to your subdomain, but don't count on it.

      Mine are nature themed:

      Inspect the well cover if you have a cat.

      Keep the geckos away from your toothpaste.

      If something lives in your toaster stand well clear when you turn it on.

      You can't beat the ants so don't buy food.

      Gonna double-down on the B-complex vitamins. That could have saved me years of expensive supplements and meds!

      Mine: Beauty is skin deep, but changing your look goes a long way towards getting out of a rut.

      Relationships matter. No matter how much of a cool cowboy loner you think you are, every life needs an audience.

      Marrying young isn't a bad thing; the secret is to marry your best friend, and that can happen at just about any age.

      All men will tell at least one lie in their lives, and that lie is, "No, honey, I don't need the GPS."

    Just because you CAN do something, doesn't mean you should.  It might be legal but that doesn't make it right.

    You can't learn what you already know.  Accept the limitations of your knowledge and it's amazing what you might add to it.

    Always use the appropriate tools for the job ... or buy Bandaids in bulk.

    If you're always running against the herd, you can expect to be trampled.  Make it count.

    If every relationship you're in is dysfunctional, it's time to ask yourself why you're the common denominator.

    Keep those cards and letters coming in...

    Life is an iterative process...

    I'm not one to say
    Were my feelings are going when they wither away
    I pray to see another day
    My hearts feeling like a needle lost in the hay
    Restrained to meet again
    My friend do you think that we ever will
    I know we are free...

    The games are played with your life on the line
    Some lose, you win if you keep on tryin
    I don't mind doing the time, I'm happier being alive
    Now I know the means to my oppression were all lies...
    The only truth is your own most sacred lesson I've ever learned
    I know we are free...

    Yeah... Yeah... don't go, no, don't look back... just realize

    I've been robbed, I've been fooled
    I intend now to make my own rules
    Daggers edge cut the life, I've been down that road... too many times
    What's to fear, fear no more
    Show my conscience what fear's for
    Now I know this is so real
    What's done is done so do as you will!

    I'm keeping alive! Go on, no, don't look back
    Just realize, where you've gone
    Where are you going to, No life's not done with you
    You've only just begun, To live your life
    For you...
