On the Carpet:

Simple lies

Are we ruled by our circumstances and past, bound to our fate?
Are we masters of our future, based on our attitudes & actions?


All of these factors have important roles to play, but to pretend there is no luck, no randomness, no legacy from the past is to lie to yourself.

To pretend there is no luck, no randomness, no past is also to lie to yourself.

Lies do not help. Generally, they make things worse, more messy, not better.

The truth?

The more we try, the better our attitude, the better our odds moving forward. Over time, better odds tend to offer better results. We can only find out what’s possible by trying, not by deciding before we try. Generally, far more is possible than we assume. “Impossible” is not a fact, it’s an assessment that is often flawed.

Truth trumps lies. It is the language of winners. Self-deception is for people you run blindfolded off cliffs with a great attitude of lots of optimism… smiles then splat!


Don’t splat…. Win!

About Big Red Carpet Nurse (1750 Articles)
Along with other stuff I enjoy that pays the bills (a plus!), I'm a budding nurse comic. I plan, like fake Opthomologist Rand Paul, to create my own professional organization solely so it will grant me a Doctorate. In my case, the org will be something like the AANC (American Association of Nurse Comics), and it will (trust me on this point) agree to make me the first ever DNC: Doctor of Nurse Comedy. I'll keep you posted!

I love your comments! Please, take a moment & share.
