22 things I've learned in 22 years.

1.) No matter how much you care for someone, you can't make them care for you.

2.) Laughter is the best medicine.

3.) Be in the moment.

4.) Being a mother is the hardest job in the world, so be kind to your mother. Although it wasn't the best to you, it may have been her best.

5.) Being able to admit your mistakes shows real strength and character.

6.) Talking, writing... it really does give you clarity.

7.) Never put work before your family. If you do, it's something you'll always regret.

8.) Don't judge. You won't really understand this until you've judged someone and then found yourself in their shoes. It will be a really monumental moment in your life.

9.) Sometimes you have to chose to be happy.

10.) A dog really is a man's best friend.

11.) Never discuss sex, religion or politics at the dinner table... or facebook :)

12.) I believe in all paths to God.

13.) Besides education and global communication, television and the internet are pretty worthless to society.

14.) You will not understand your parents' love until you, yourself have a child.

15.) Just when you think you have the world figured out, something will happen and you will realize you still have a LOT to learn. I'm pretty sure this will be a life long thing.

16.) Sometimes taking a moment to reflect instead of react will save you a lot of trouble.

17.) The world doesn't stop to grieve with you, but hopefully a few close people in your life will.

18.) Strive to know more about the world and the people in it.

19.) Never trust someone selling something door to door.

20.) If it sounds too good to be true, you're probably right.

21.) If you're looking for a job and it costs money to start- you're getting screwed.

22.) Live like your days are numbered. Because they are.

  3. So wise and insightful :) I to agree you never know how much your parents love you until you have a child. Now I defiantly know how much they do!
