What I learned in 2014

  • A few storms in your life will rock you for a short time, but when they die down you get to see who your fair-weather “friends” really are.
  • At the end of the day, if something you thought you can make work isn’t going anywhere, learn from it and move on. You can’t make a rock sprout roses by continuously dumping fertilizer on it.
  • The support of a few true friends outweighs the collective mass of haters in the world.
  • It doesn’t matter how many people believe in you, if you don’t believe in yourself.
  • That LuluLemon stock was a bad idea.
  • Be reluctant to let go your first impressions. They’re usually right.
  • Learn to accept when somebody knows something you don’t (and should) with grace.
  • If you want to be successful, look at what successful people do. They got that way for a reason.
  • “We see the world not as it is, but as we are” is the one universal truth discovered by men. Proven to me TIME AND TIME AGAIN THIS YEAR.
  • New Area Rug + Aging Dog locked inside house for 6 hrs/day = massive cleaning bill
  • You can’t move forward by turning in circles. (well, I guess you could, if you moved forward while turning circles, but would you know you were doing it? And it’d probably take a lot longer.)
  • “To thine own self be true,” is a lot harder then it seems.
  • ALWAYS accept the map the park ranger offers you.
  • Don’t stop writing.

    Very true! Love these ones especially “The support of a few true friends outweighs the collective mass of haters in the world.” and the fair weather friends one. And all pet lessons are priceless! But best of all “Don’t stop writing!!!!”
