The Mamushi Book of Life: 4. Avoiding trouble
Avoid Trouble: by all means
This is going to be a short hub, and direct. When I was a child, old people used to tell me, "by any means necessary, avoid trouble, like avoiding the plague." They used to tell me, "don't go around with a chip on your shoulders." "If you go around looking for trouble you will surely find it," they use to tell me. I have lived to be a pretty old person, and I have never been shot at, or stabbed, or hit in the head with a stick, or ran over by an automobile.
One must proceed carefully as he or she negotiates this path called "Life." Life isn't easy, but it is worth it. I hear people saying "I ain't worrying about anything, God is gonna take care of me." I say, "Okay. Great. God is going to take care of you." But I also tell them, "God gave you a brain, and God expects you to use some common sense, and do some thinking, to help take care of yourself." God expects you to take some initiative for the good outcome that you are expecting from him. Is it asking too much to expect you to help yourself along the way?
I have written this hub quickly and in the wee hours of the morning, hoping that it may help save somebody's life. Take care. As you go from point A to point B proceed carefully. Life is short, at best. But life is good. As you go, Peace.
