Lessons I Have Learned (2013)

Nothing great happens without sacrifice

Great relationships happen with patience and forgiveness (on both sides).  If you cut off the people who irritate you, you will be very lonely and miserable.

We all have a serious problem or addiction in our lives.  We need to recognize it as a problem and try to keep it from hurting others.

If you want to change the world, you will hurt those around you.  Really consider if the sacrifices you make them pay are worth it.

Generally, you aren’t important enough for others to talk about.  Don’t fret about what others say, they are probably saying nothing.

The more you want something, the more you strive for it.  The more you strive, the less likely you’ll get it.  Give it time.

You may not think you need balance in your life.  You do.  Listen to those who went your path before you who had to learn about balance the hard way.

The only people who don’t need balance are those who die young.

The more you practice something, the more natural it becomes.  Practice kindness now so you don’t become a nasty old person.

You’ll never accomplish anything unless you do something different than those around you.

Listen to Ms. Frizzle: "Take chances.  Make mistakes.  Get messy."
