After the last couple of days and my latest post this t-shirt from Her Kentucky seems more fitting than usual. I definitely realize that I’m not the most popular guy, and to be honest the older I get the more and more I’m ok with that. In other words (like the shirt says) I’d rather be someone’s shot of bourbon than everyone’s cup of tea. Life’s way, way too short to be anyone other than your 100% authentic self. Once you realize that the right people will come into your life, and they will stay.
It was recently brought to my attention that someone made the statement, “Josh doesn’t have any friends.” Which is partially true. I have a lot of “acquaintances”, but very few true friends. That’s partially due to personal decisions, stubbornness on my part, and a whole slue of other things, but when it boils down to it at this point in my life I no longer have time/energy/room for friendships/relationships/business ventures that do nothing to grow or better me in some way, shape, or form. One of my favorite quotes sums it up best, “Do not chase people. Work hard and be you. The right people who belong in your life will come find you and stay. Do your thing.” And that’s exactly what I plan on doing.
