The Company you keep

I am almost reluctant to even post this. It seems almost ridiculous that I need to. However, for the sake of the youth that may read this and the adults that at some point should I shall post this blog.
It is very imperative that you be mindful of he company you keep. Didn't your mother ever tell you that "birds of a feather flock together"? Mine did. It took a while for me to understand what that meant. Now as an adult, I really see it. It seems that daily there is some celebrity that shows up in trouble on a news blotter, or scrolling across the bottom of ESPN. Inveribly, it happens at some night club at 2,3,4 am. Why is it that the people with the most money. The people that parents let their children look up to, that people that grown men and women don their jerseys on Saturdays or Sundays; these are the people that seem to get in trouble for the stupidest of reasons. If you're making over $150K/ year, you can afford to hire someone to drive you around for the night to make sure you don't get a dui. Or you would think they would have enough since to not allow yourself to get in trouble at the same places their teammates seem to always get in trouble with. Apparently, in some cases, we are dead wrong.
Now you probably ask, what this has to do with you. EVERYTHING! Odds are you are not a highly paid athlete, whose skills are in high demand and whose ability is difficult to replace. The truth is there are probably 100 other people out there just waiting to get your spot. Therefore, it would behoove you to be mindful of the places you go and the company you keep. If you show up in the wrong place at the wrong time. Your life as you know it can take a drastic turn for the worst. But then again, what do I know. Until next time...
God Bless and dress well,
