Just So You Know
I am not a cynic, but I have to admit that I am a little tired of how our society gets so wrapped up in certain celebrities! Now I do get star struck from time to time, but I am very selective. When my sons were young, I waited in a line for an hour with them to get an autograph from Bo Jackson. Bo was with the Memphis Chicks for a short time and he was in Birmingham playing the Barons. I also once stood in the rain on the streets of New Orleans to see President Ronald Reagan and Nancy Reagan pass by in a motorcade. Both were a long time ago and I do not regret either incident. Neither “celebrity” has ever disappointed me.
My point is this…I am happy that Prince William and Kate finally had their baby. Unnamed Prince is healthy….Mom Kate is healthy. That is all that is important. I really do like the royals, I just don’t want to hear about every little thing that this child does. He is a BABY. He does what babies do. A weekly report will suffice. I will have to admit that I did watch the wedding of Charles and Dianna. This was before DVRs and the wedding was in the middle of the night. I don’t regret that either. What I am trying to say is this…I can live the rest of my life without hearing or reading about immoral, shallow minded, self absorbed people like Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus or the Kardashians. They could not even stand in the same room with the previously mentioned “celebs”. I suppose that is what the delete button and the remote control are for.
Studies by psychiatrists have proven that one out of every four people suffers from some form of a mental disorder. Check out three of your friends. If they seem to be okay, guess what?
Until next week…remember…Judge your success by what you had to give up to achieve it.
