Weekly Fortunes

When people used to listen to records they had to get up and flip the record to hear the whole album. In life no one flips records for us. Every person has to do this for themselves. If you don't feel like getting up to flip the record, do it anyway. Get up and flip it if you want a new song. Rock on!

"Daisy Daisy Give me your answer true I'm half crazy over the love of you!" Let's focus on the mid section of that old song "give me your answer true." When someone asks for your true feelings this week give them the truth, even if it is an inconvenient truth.

Don't waste too much time on trivial pursuits. Even if you live till you are one hundred life is too short. Get crackin. Release the Kraken on haters and time wasters.

Silver has to be polished otherwise it will be tarnished. All beauty takes a little work. The same is true for relationships.

Instead of painting by numbers this week just use your instincts.

Say prayers for wild animals who are losing their homes for the sake of progress. Consider what you can do to make a difference. Wear something beige midweek.

We all know that if life gives us lemons we need to make lemonade. But what if life gives us lemonade? Don't feel guilty for being blessed this week. Enjoy your luck. Drink up.

Nothing is perfect. You have the experience and insight to help someone move in the right direction.

Remember running in the dark of night? You ran not from something but just for the sake of feeling that night air and the freedom of no one knowing where you were. Take a trip by yourself in the night.

It doesn't matter if you are a model citizen if you hate other people. It would be better to litter and to love people than to pick up trash and think you are superior to others. The one rule is to love your neighbor as yourself. That doesn't just mean the neighbors you like or agree with or who never hurt you.. that means all your neighbors even the assholes and the ones who broke your heart.

What does the moon look like? We have seen pictures but unless we have been there we just don't know. The same goes for other people's lives. You could watch someone all day but unless you are in their head and heart you just don't know, So don't think you do. That would be foolish.

Tender is every night if you make it so.
