“Things don’t happen. Things are made to happen.” -John F Kennedy
I read this quote two days ago when it came in an email along with the lunch menu and after school activities in the Metcalf Jr High newsletter. I’d not heard it before and it’s really got me thinking…
About the ludicrousness of coincidence or accidents- accidents are by far are more like carelessness.
What about circumstances? Have you heard about the egg and the potato? It’s not a joke. You put each one in boiling hot water and what happens? The potato softens and the egg gets hard before it cracks. Same circumstances, different outcomes and reactions.
Life is what you make it, damn it.
It’d be nice to avoid responsibility and blame everyone else for every shitty thing but it won’t make ME any happier. It won’t improve things. If I control it (take responsibility for it) I can change it…
Ha! I’m not calling anyone stupid… everyone has lapses in judgement from time to time. The most important thing is to learn from it and move on.
