An eight-year-old boy approached an old man in front of a wishing well, looked up into his eyes, and asked: "I understand you're a very wise man. I'd like to know the secret of life."
The old man looked down at the youngster and replied: "I've thought a lot in my lifetime, and the secret can be summed up in four words.
The first is think. Think about the values you wish to live your life by.
The second is believe. Believe in yourself based on the thinking you've done about the values you're going to live your life by.
The third is dream. Dream about the things that can be, based on your belief in yourself and the values you're going to live by.
The last is dare. Dare to make your dreams become reality, based on your belief in yourself and your values."
i hope i randomly get super hot in the next year or two and everyone is just like “oh shit”
I feel so bad for my dad. My brother is so fucking hard headed and tunnel visioned. If a single detail in his elaborate scheme doesn’t go according to his plan he freaks the fuck out. For example, just a second ago my brother and dad were arguing about firefly. My brother told my dad something about his trip and my dad questions him about his trip. My dad asks him simple questions like, who’s driving? How long? And when my brother told my dad that it was a four day straight concert my dad gets angry. When my brother originally asked for my fathers permission to go, he failed to explain any of the details about the trip. And once my dad told my brother that he didn’t think it’d be safe to drive his old broken car down to firefly and only 50 bucks in his pocket my brother in turn flips out. He’s just suddenly so appalled that my dad would question my brothers seemlessly flawless plan. In turn my brother throws a fit, and keep in mind that my brother is an almost nineteen year old college kid who’s never been exposed to something as raw and drugged up as firefly. My poor brother is gonna get into some kind of trouble I already know it. But other than that I just don’t understand why my brother is so hard headed. Is it because he is a male? Is it because he has some kind of acute mental disorder? Is it just in his genes? I feel so sorry for my dad sometimes. In cases like this my father knows to let him make his own mistakes. In that sense I admire my father… The funny part is that after my dad pokes holes in my brothers plan my brother storms out of the house and fucking gets in his car and fucking speeds away super loud and shit. Ugh. I literally hate him for being so immature sometimes. My 18 year old brother truly is trapped in the body of a seven year old. Aren’t these signs of autism? Oh well, shit, I could write a drama about my brother.
