Do Overs


I was taking a trip down memory lane, and it was a pleasant trip for the most part. Thinking about how stupid I was at times.
I found this picture that Brenda took of me exactly 20 years ago this month. Man would I like to talk to that guy. What I would tell him is that life is not just a party to be enjoyed, but it is always a training ground for bigger and better things to come. I would tell him that there are going to be things he cannot control. Mistakes that turn tragic. Potholes that would make any road guy happy.
I have been given a second chance at something I cherish deeply, so the reason for the trip. Sometimes even we as an adult get do overs.

Just Happy

If I could go back I would tell that kid that was/is me: Don't worry 90% of the stuff you worry about happening won't happen anyway.
