The older I get, the more I realize how important it is to cling to the lessons my life has taught me. The things we believe, the ways that we choose to live our lives, are all based on what our experiences have taught us. We always have an option: we can willingly change or we can continue to repeat our mistakes. The choice is always ours.
Here's what I believe:
Life isn't fair or perfect. It rarely makes sense.
If you use "things" to fill the holes in your life, they will never be full.
After a hard day, you do deserve that glass of wine. Just one glass, though.
Humor can be found in every situation. If you haven't found it, keep looking.
Family is the single most important part of your life.
Your job should be your passion. If it's not, it's time to find a new job.
Zits are nature's way of bringing you down a notch.
When things go wrong, there's always a lesson to be learned.
Follow your heart, listen to your brain--but ultimately--trust your gut.
Black paint makes everything look better.
Some days, running is the only solution to my problems.
"Thank you" is the simplest, but most meaningful, thing you will ever say.
Whether it's misery or happiness, you'll always find what you're looking for.
Approaching life with "cautious optimism" is the best way to avoid disappointment.
What is meant to be will always find a way.
The best things in life aren't things.
