"Chickens Can't Fly"
Written by Harold C. Smith- Germany February 23, 2008
Don't spend major time with minor people. If there are people in your life
that continually disappoint you, break promises, stomp on your dreams, too
judgmental, have different values and don't have your back during difficult
times...that is not a friend. To have a friend, be a friend. Sometimes in
life as you grow, your friends will either grow or go. Surround yourself
with people who reflect your
values, goals, interests and lifestyle. When I think of any of my successes
and my failures, I am thankful to GOD from whom all blessings flow for
blessing me and bestowing upon me experiences that I can learn and grow from,
and to my family and friends that enrich my life. Over the years my phone
book has changed because I changed for the better. At first you think you're
going to be alone, but after a while new people show up in your life that
make your life so much sweeter and easier to endure.
Remember what your elders used to say, "Birds of a feather stick together."
If you're an eagle, don't hang around chickens: Chickens Can't Fly !!!!!!!
