After having such an amazing birthday, I found myself spending a little time reflecting on the past year. I started to take note of the good things that happened and to reflect on where the last year took me. I learned some really good lessons that I don't ever want to forget.
It may have taken me 23 years to learn a few of these, but at least I finally learned ;) Some are serious and some are fun--what are your favorite life lessons?
1}Growing with your friends over the years is so rewarding. Regardless of what you go through...at some point you become family.
2}Don't take those special people in your life for granted.
3}Listening always leads you in the right direction. Sometimes you have to just shut your mouth and open your ears. This one can be especially hard...
4}Save money. It really matters and makes a difference in your life.
5}Try not to have tunnel vision. The long away future isn't what you have to worry about everyday. Just enjoy the moment.
