The story begins on Sunday at 5:49pm
I did something... well... let's call it foolish.
And 72-hours later...
I have had to re-learn (the hard, painful way),
Something I've always known.
No matter who you are or what your blood genotype is
Every action... every choice... every decision you make...
Comes rushing back in your direction with rewards or consequences
Don't... in the name of having fun temporarily...
Endanger your health or life or reputation.
You may think you're getting away with pushing your luck
We always fall into that trap
And it always ends in regret.
This is not the classic Andy Mukolo email
And maybe one day...
I'll expand on why I chose to send you a message like this
But for now...
Avoid anything that endangers your health or life
I don't care how much fun it promises
Careful what you put in your body
Careful where you go
Careful who you hang out with
Think about your loved ones
Think about your goals... dreams... clients... mentees... students
All those people you help
Or intend to help
Be conscious of the choices you make
There are many ways to have fun and live a fulfilled life,
Without risking your health, life and reputation.
Always think about the after-math.
Would you want to do things differently knowing what the consequences and aftermath would be?
Only you can answer that question.
