Life Lessons...


Today is my birthday and with birthdays come reflections - reflections of where I’m at in life and where I want to be in the next year or so.   
Here are some of the lessons I’ve learned along the way…
I’ve learned – every day should be lived like it’s happy hour.
I’ve learned – to laugh often, at both myself and others.
I’ve learned – not to take things too personally because some people are just asses.
I’ve learned – you should always follow through on a dare – at least once in your lifetime or until such time as you get caught.
I’ve learned – some people won’t be there for you when you think they should be.  It’s these disappointments that make us stronger.
I’ve learned – what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
I’ve learned – swearing can be good for your mental health.
I’ve learned – I’m my own best friend.  I have to be – my real friends are crazy.
I've learned - if you lick a light pole in the winter, in Canada, your tongue will stick to it.
I’ve learned – my family may love me, but sometimes they can be a pain in the ass.
I’ve learned – to say NO and not feel guilty about it, when to pick my battles and when is the best time to simply walk away.
