After reading a post by Joe Mazza (@JoeMazza) called #10Assumptions I had as a kid, I felt compelled to come up with my own #10Assumptions. I was compelled because Joe actually emailed me the link to the blog and asked that I consider my own assumptions. So here goes.
#1. Money can buy happiness. It doesn't. It just buys things.
#2. Everyone wants what's best for everyone else. It's not true. Some want what's only best for themselves.
#3. My family was like everyone else's. It's not true. Every family is different, and that's a good thing.
#4. The only good basketball officials are male. My sister proved me wrong over and over again.
#5. Coaches had to yell to get players and teams to be successful. My high school track coach proved that wrong with his constant positivity.
#6. The only happy couples are a boy and a girl. My good friend Tony, and his friend Felix, proved me wrong.
#7. I could only be friends with people I knew face to face. Twitter and voxer have proved me wrong.
#8. People that smile at you like you. That's not always the case. Sometimes they are laughing at you and don't like you at all.
#9. My grandparents would always be there. They aren't "there" now, and I should have done so much more to connect with them.
#10. Your best friend in grade school will always be your best friend. That's not true. Sometimes you move away. Sometimes they find a new best friend. Sometimes you find a new best friend. My best friend is my wife and I didn't know her in grade school.
What would you add to my #10Assumptions?
