Snowflake Melting Resolutions

Cool off. Go jump in a lake. With your phone. When you come up for air, you will be ready to get to work. And your phone no longer will.

Opinions are like belly-buttons: Everyone’s got one. And whining doesn’t enrich the discussion. It’s just more pee in the pool.

School is outway out. And whatever you’ve learned will just have to be unlearned. The fundamentals of everyday life are discovered outside the classroom, including the journey’s most essential ingredients: Character and faith.

Punctuation, use some. And learn how to spell. Auto-correct shouldn’t be smarter than you.

Social media is not. Anyone you know only on social media, you don’t know. And anyone who knows you only on social media, you don’t want to know.

Get a pair. Of boots. Self-esteem is a mirage (it’s free and worth as much). Only the respect of others has any value, and unlike your student debt must be paid for.

Do something… anything, where you hafta show up, get your hands dirty, and the boss fumbles for your name. Maybe with a little humility you’ll find some consideration for that little gal who takes your latte order. Or maybe you’ll just find yourself.

Drop your pants (…speaking of finding yourself).  Figure out what you are then act accordingly. If you’re still not sure, ask someone else to drop theirs.

Be the same. Everyone’s different, just like you.

Look up. You are not the center of the universe. Thank God.
