Compare Yourself to Yourself

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

The Thang! QIC had one thought for the day…compare Yourself to Yourself. The previous day’s F2 lunch discussion was about EHing men and the big excuse was that they “had to get in shape before they joined the group.” We all know that’s Bravo Sierra…we also know that that’s how Sad Clowns operate. So we […]

Lewis “Happiness is the absence of striving for happiness.” Some […]
