Red Cowgirl Boots and what I learned from them.

January 24, 2013
  1. bootsI have been looking for Vegan Cowgirl Boots forever.
  2. I finally found a pair at Plasticland.
  3. Everyone looks at your feet when you are wearing Red Cowgirl Boots
  4. Red Shoes make you happy (I’ve actually believed this for years).
  5. When you only ever wear Converse Chucks or my one pair of  Toms even a small heel makes you feel like a giant.
  6. When you only normally wear Converse Chucks or my one pair of Toms and you put on a pair of Red Cowgirl Boots and you walk on non-carpeted floors you make a loud clomping noise. (View Video)
  7. I need to wear a thicker pair of socks with my Red Cowgirl Boots.
  8. My calves are large and my Red Cowgirl Boots can’t come up all the way.
  9. Because of my calves my Red Cowgirl Boots bunch up a bit at my ankles and I like them better that way.
  10. Red Cowgirl Boots are much warmer than my Chucks and Toms.

The Paradoxical Commandments
by Dr. Kent M. Keith

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.

This is quote is often, incorrectly, attributed to Mother Teresa, who had this hanging in her orphanage.
