A Working Class Hero Is Something To Be

The title of this came from a John Lennon. I want to subtitle it "If you see me as a someone, thats what it is I'm trying to be" from a Jeffrey Gaines song.


I am writing this rather depressed. I tend to enjoy my solitude from time to time although I run the risk of becoming too introspective.


Anyway, I know in this blog, I at least once said to follow your passion. I will probably say it again. To me, it is the single most important piece of advice. (that along with take care of your teeth).


As I sit here and type this on 3/10/15 at 12:51 am, I have been unemployed from selling cars for just over 2 months. My resume is a little all over the place.


As you get older, and decide what it is you would like to do with your life, follow your heart. If I have any regrets in life, it is that I didn't go to college (honestly I was nervous and didn't like school), and that I didn't really take any chances. I didn't go for what I really wanted to do in life.


Whatever it is that you wish to do, you are going to be surrounded by people who tell you it can not be done. I may even be one of them, you then have my permission to throw this back in face.


I do not want you to be a 45 year old man, with no job, a family to feed, and it being too late to do what you always wanted to do.


I love you RJ, you are an extraordinary peorson with lots of God given talent. Make use of it.  Don't be an exceptional person who lives an ordinary life.
