Life Lessons Learned (Usually the Hard Way)… or I’m Doing It My Way. Someone Please Stop ME

I feel compelled to jot these bits of wisdom down.  Vanity, an attempt to clear my own head, trying to help my fellow man… what-ev.  Take them for what you will.

  • If you wear the beautiful diamond necklace your ex gave you, the chain will grab your hair all day just to remind you of him.  I swear men put curses on these gifts.
  • Just because it costs a dollar doesn’t mean it won’t be good.  You don’t always get what you pay for, but sometimes you get more than you expect.
  • Instead of trying to eat the entire Pepperidge Farm cake in 1 sitting just to see if you can, face the fact that indeed you cannot BEFORE you make yourself sick.  Eat half at a time and be able to enjoy it.
  • Never plan to leave work early because those are the days you will end up working overtime.
  • Waterproof mascara is hard to wash off at the end of the day.  Do I really need to explain why?
  • Dollar store sunglasses will last 5 times longer than name-brand sunglasses.  When you pay $125 for the suckers, you WILL sit on them before the end of 6 months.  Another curse thing.
  • On days when you feel like “going down the road”, remember that tomorrow you may feel like running “across the street” to have tea with a friend.  Things are not always as bad as they seem, they could be worse, and some days make it all worthwhile.
  • Hang on to every detail of the worthwhile days to get you through the rest.
  • The big things are great, but it’s the little things that really matter because you have the little things every day; the big things only come once in a while.  Appreciate the little things.
  • As much as I love chocolate and wine, too much of either is not beneficial- though the latter gives my friends something to laugh about.
  • At the end of the day, no matter who you share the bed with, you always end up with yourself.
