Just Some Suggestions....

Advice is like shit. Everyone has it and it stinking.
But here are a few suggestion I have learn about life. And I learned them the hard way, by living them.

Balances: Most thing in life can be boiled down to a balance of time verse resource. We do it ever day and we don't even realize it. Individuals do it. Families do it. Governments do it. You balance your need to work verse your time spent with family and friends. Balancing your personal needs verse those of your family and/or community. Governments balance the need of their citizens with the resources to serve them.

Be a Whole Person First: I hate the saying "Soul Mate" or two parts of the same soul or one soul in two bodies. It always sounds like half of your soul is missing and that makes you half a person. You should be a happy, whole person first. Don't depend on someone else to make you happy and complete. You will attract complete and whole people to you because you a happy and complete. This will lead to a higher standard of people around you that will lead to higher quality of relationships in your life.
Simply put .5 + .5 = 1 verse 1 + 1 = 2

It's Just Stuff: Mississippi Singer/Song Writer Cary Hudson wrote of song a few days after Hurricane Katrina call "Just Stuff". After that disaster, people learn what was TRULY important to them. You don't need Cars, Big Houses, Cash, Gold or Diamonds to be happy and define who you are. Car are just a way to get from point A to point B. Cash is just paper. Gold is just a metal and Diamonds are just rocks. Those things only have value because people give them value. It is nice to have a new this or a classic that, but don't measure your worth by those thinks. Because stuff can be stolen or sometimes it just might blow away.

If you are bored, it is because you are boring: If you are bored, it is because you are not interesting enough to find something to do. It doesn't matter if you live in Elk City, OK; Detroit Lake, MN; Denver, CO; N.O.L.A.; or N.Y.C. If you are can't find something the do, the problem is not the place but the people that live there. Stop waiting for other people to make your community or "scene" better, Do It Yourself. Your town doesn't have a club, Open one. Bands you like don't play in your town, Start one. Want to bring regional or nation acts to your area, support your local one. Stop complaining and start doing something about it. You will find that you won't be bored anymore, even if you fail....which leads us to....

Leap before you look: It can be scary and that is okay. But sometimes you just got to stop wondering or worrying and DO IT! It is always best to know what you are jumping into, but you will never have all the facts. The problem with this is knowing when to jump in and when to not jump in. Sorry, can't help you with that, but the rewards for success always out weight the fear of failure.
