This blog is not for the light-hearted or easily offended. If either one of those descriptions applies to you, i would suggest you start drinking before you read this blog. A sense of humor is suggested. If you don't have one that sucks for you … find one and get a life!

In which i share my wisdom

These are some of the little pearls of wisdom I’ve shared with my kids and now I’m going to share them with you.  Feel free to use them as you will!

 

  • Life isn’t fair so stop expecting it to be.

  • Use the assets you were given to the best of your ability and stop dwelling on the ones you don’t have.

  • Everybody has issues; you just can’t see them.  Yes, even the girls who are beautiful.

  • Try things you aren’t good at; you’ll never appreciate success until you suffered from failure.

  • Have a sense of humor; the world throws things at you all the time and sometimes all you can do it laugh.

  • When you’re dealt a bad hand; mourn it and then deal with it.  Shit happens to everyone.

  • It takes three things to be a great athlete; the talent, the heart, and the head.  Not many people have all three.

  • I know you’re hurting but sometimes, things can’t be fixed and you just have to be sad and muddle through it.

  • I know I’m your mother but I’m not a miracle worker and I can’t fix everything…in spite of my awesomeness, I’m only human.

  • Research the hell out of whatever the problem is and then decide on a course of action; knowledge is power.

  • Sometimes you just suck.  That’s life!

  • Good things happen when least expected.  My mom told me that I would meet the man of my dreams when I least expected it.  I didn’t but I met your dad instead!  (HAHAHA…just kidding!)

  • Bad things happen to good people.  I know it’s not fair but see the first rule.

  • Being yourself in the face of peer pressure can be tough; it can cost you friends but at the end of the day, you’ll like yourself more.

  • Just because everyone is doing it doesn’t make it right.

  • All you can do is the best you can do.  Stop worrying about it.

  • Sometimes, the shitty things that happen to us turn out to be the greatest gift of all.  Everyone needs a kick in the ass sometimes.

  • Ranting at me isn’t doing anything but pissing me off.  What the hell do you want me to do about it?

  • Family can sometimes be a pain in the ass but it’s YOUR FAMILY so just deal with it.

  • I’m not interested anymore in the bullshit between you and blahblahblah…figure it out yourself and leave me alone.

  • My blog is awesome and someday, you’ll appreciate it.

  • I’m funnier than you…stop competing with me.

  • No seriously, JUST STOP!

  • That is all!

    Very good tidbits of wisdom. Loved the line “I’m funnier than you…stop competing with me.”

      I’m actually not sure what a ping back is

      • It's a Wordpress thang...
        April 22, 2011

        It’s a WordPress thing, I think; whenever one WordPress blog “realizes” that a post is linking to another WordPress-based blog, the two become aware of each other.

        Actually, I didn’t really intend for my “guest blogger Nyll” post to get fed back to these comments. Anyway, you might want to disable ping backs from my site if you don’t like her.

        In other news, I am babysitting my neighbors dog. I thought it would be awesome, because he is my dog’s best friend. I did not realize the neighbor’s dog has atomic gas, though. Jesus.

          Also, yes, I did just put my name down where I meant to put down the “title” of my reply. It’s well past 4:20 pm on the West Coast. I’m just sayin’

          Oh, I don’t care…I just didn’t know what it was. So you put a link to this blog on your post? That’s nice…thanks

    I gotta agree with every one of them. I especially like the one about “I’m not interested anymore in the bullshit between you and blahblahblah…figure it out yourself and leave me alone”. With teenage girls around, this is sooooooooo true.

    I know I’m your mother but I’m not a miracle worker and I can’t fix everything…in spite of my awesomeness, I’m only human. <— love that one! I may have to use it someday.
