Don't Take Yourself Too Seriously, Among Other Things

*This is addressed to myself (john)...

Don't take yourself too seriously. Seriously, it's not worth it. 

Don't try to do or say things to look cool and fit in when you know it's not who you really are. Don't get too caught up in fleeting thoughts and recognition. Do all with integrity. Focus on things that actually matter; things that will last.

Just be. Try not to always worry about doing.

If worry you must, at least put it on worthwhile things, such as Sarah and Harvey's safety and health. But remember, God will take care of them; always. There's nothing you can do to change certain outcomes. 

Don't ever make someone else feel stupid so that you can look cool. Don't pretend to know things that you don't know anything about. 

Don't forget who brought you to the dance. Don't forget that someone's watching your every action, especially Harvey in a few months. Don't forget the little things. 

Don't let work take over. Don't let pride get the best of you. 

Always remember that you don't deserve any of what you have.

Love your bride above all else; she is your number one. Remember that you have been commanded to do this; and you vowed to it.

Love well. Love strong. Love always.
