Note To Self No. 2
Let's pray and hope that this is the last in the "Note to Self" series.
When somebody whom you haven't even met goads you into throwing down the guantlet with fighting words such as how her friend's bizarre genetic mutation could put my "delusional lower lip ability to shame,"
- It's okay to get riled up. Emotional health is a key ingredient of happiness.
- It is okay to respond with a quick retort, "You know, I can do that too," without really checking to see if you can match the ability. A Can-Do attitude can go a long way in this competitive world.
- Now get to work. This is important.
- And it is perfectly okay to fail and then pick up the pens again and keep trying repeatedly. Perseverance will pay off.
- Don't give up. Your lower lip's glorious and triumphant feat did not come about in one day. As they say, Rome was not built in one day.
BUT FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, DON'T DO THOSE THINGS IN A PUBLIC PLACE like Starbucks.
And be a little more alert to your surroundings before realizing you have a large audience of horrified onlookers with small children.
