When I was just shy of 34, I decided to compose a list of things that I’d learned over the years. Each year I created a new list. This became my testimony. Here is Volume 36:
- I LIVE…I LEARN
- LIFE is a series of question and quotation marks, commas, colons, semi-colons, ‘suspenseful dots’ and emoticons.
- Don’t believe in periods.
- Except precisely every 28-35 days… O_o
- LIFE is a game. Enjoy the sport.
- You can’t W(in) the game if you’re not (in) the game.
- Participation ribbons are bullshit.
- But then again, so are some 1st place trophies.
- Don’t break the rules. Create the rules.
- Perfect PEACE and perfect LIFE aren’t necessarily synonymous.
- They are, however, one in the same. #confusingiknow
- CONCEIVE…BELIEVE…ACHIEVE… #foolproofformulaforsuccess
- Hardest part? Preparing yourSELF to RECEIVE.
- As above, so below.
- Change the voices in your head. Make them like you instead. #wordtoP!nk
- Thoughts are worth more than a penny. Don’t sell yourSELF cheap.
- It’s 2AM…BREATHE
- Trust your GPS but pay close attention to the road signs to make sure the path hasn’t changed along the way.
- Thinking like a man is overrated. It can make a woman hard.
- There is value in femininity.
- Mars and Venus may be different planets, but together they are a part of a beautiful galaxy. #ONE
- Earth…air…fire…water…. #justnotallatonce
- Playing with filters are cool, but appreciate the original snapshot.
- Everything is more beautiful by moonlight.
- Never allow the illusion of death to interfere with your gift of LIFE.
- Cherish and protect your time, but hoarding or obsessing over it is a waste.
- If you lead with your heart, there’s no room for regrets.
- The story is still unwritten.
- Carry a variety of pens, pencils and markers at all times. #tagyourshyt #graffiti
- Dogs and kids are the greatest teachers of how to express unconditional LOVE. #ThanksKedarandallmyGoddies
- It’s exhilarating to LOVE like you’ve never been hurt before and sing like no one’s listening.
- But if you dance like no one’s watching, be sure your webcam’s not on. #awkwaaaaard
