Truman Capote tells us; Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor.  Often after a slew of fail attempts, success has a well-balanced effect, much like a good meal when all the sides work well with the meat.

Did you know, The bitter truth is better than the sweetest lie.  Yes, the truth hurts, but little white lies often turn into big black holes, and sacrifice calls for self-denial, hard work, dedication, and respect for authority.

Did you know, if your sacrifice did not cost you something worthwhile it was not a sacrifice?  Now, don’t get it twisted, some things we call achievements are really just our responsibilities.

If we never take a chance on how far we can go, we will never know our limits.  Take a risk, and step out of your comfort zone, you may find your purpose or some talent you did not realize you had.  I never could write, and I still can’t, but I do better than I thought because some of you are reading and enjoying me.  Don’t that count for something?

If you want to feel the real satisfaction of what an achievement can bring, make sure the task is difficult.  Anybody can do the simple things and some of what’s mandatory.  It’s the hard things we avoid.  If we put the work in, we may gain the type of success that’s worthwhile.

Remember the choices we make are our own responsibility.  Choose wisely.

Did you know, every family has their black sheep, saints, fools and geniuses?  And not one of them should be treated the same, and not one of them should be thought of any differently than the rest.  Just do unto others as you would have them do unto you, and pray they reciprocate.

Did you know; “The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision?”   Helen Keller

Remember that ole saying, ” I have forgotten more than you will ever know?”   Well, that may be true, but at some point, we all will gain some degree of knowledge, just some more than others.  The success from that knowledge is in the wisdom from the lesson, so in case you didn’t know, that’s what we want to linger.  (The wisdom.)

Did you know, a good friend should tell you the truth?  And their opinions should be valued for their sincerity and truthfulness, if not, find a new friend.  Or change you, if the shoe fits.

FYI: We all have our flaws and our good points, just remember that when taking others into account, you may not be the only one who thinks you’re all that, others may think you are too.  Don’t let them down.

Thank you, Lord, for giving us food for thoughts.  In Jesus name, we pray.
