The Indispensable Man

Sometime when you're feeling important;

Sometime when your ego's in bloom;

Sometime when you take it for granted,

You're the best qualified in the room:

Sometime when you feel that your going,

Would leave an unfillable hole,

Just follow these simple instructions,

And see how they humble your soul.

Take a bucket and fill it with water,

Put your hand in it up to the wrist,

Pull it out and the hole that's remaining,

Is a measure of how much you'll be missed.

You can splash all you wish when you enter,

You may stir up the water galore,

But stop, and you'll find that in no time,

It looks quite the same as before.

The moral of this quaint example,

Is to do just the best that you can,

Be proud of yourself but remember,

There's no indispensable man.

I don't pretend to be something I'm not. Well, normal...sometimes I pretend I'm normal:)

Someone said everyone is strange in some way – so don’t upset yourself needlessly, it only places

pressure on you, that you should be something different than you are. (Janet Vargas)

I finally got it all together--but I forgot where I put it.

When I'm not in my right mind, my left mind is twice as crowded.

I have never agreed with my other self wholly. The truth of the matter seems

to lie between us. (Kahlil Gibran)

I will always decide not to decide...unless I change my mind!

Old age ain't no place for sissies. (Bette Davis)

I could agree with you but then we would both be wrong:)

I never make the same mistake twice, I make it three or four times, you know, just to make sure.

Everyone wants your happiness. Don't let them take it!!

Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.

When nothing is going right, go left.

Of course I talk to myself... sometimes I need expert advice.

Some people are like clouds. When they go away, it's a brighter day.

The great pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.

Sometimes I pretend to be normal, but it gets boring so I go back to being myself.

Got to work this morning and my boss told me 'have a good day',

so I went home and had a great day!

Taking a shower is awesome, it makes you feel nice and clean, makes you

sound like a great singer, and helps you make all of life's decisions.

More Coming!
