Life Lessons

Life lessons are swirling around in my head today, and they are as true in love as they are in work, or any other part of our lives…

Nothing happens in a vacuum.  There are circumstances surrounding every event.

Perception is everything.  Realize that other’s perceptions of an event may not match yours.

Never yell and curse at the same time.

Try never to yell.

Respect others, no matter what.

Don’t make mountains out of mole hills.

Be patient, especially with people.

Don’t be an “evil doer” trying to make bad things happen for others.  It will come back to you.

Remember love is an action word… it’s something you do, not just something you feel.

Soak up the love from those who give it freely.  (doggies are great for this!)

Laugh a LOT.. every chance you get!

Breath deep.

Don’t just listen to music, feel it.

Move your body.

Find art that resonates with you and spend time really looking and appreciating it.

Make something once in a while.

Play with your kids.

Hug everyone you can, without being inappropriate.

Rest your head on someone’s shoulder once in a while.

Share your dreams, and thoughts and feelings.

Let people in.

Listen to your heart.

Heed your intuition.

Beware of red flags.

Don’t lie to yourself.  (at least try like hell not too!)

Be good to yourself in every way.  This world is harsh enough… be your own greatest ally.

Work hard.

Play hard.

Love hard… with all that you have.

Don’t let fear run your life.

Relax.  (this is probably the toughest one for me)

Let the cards fall where they may. (or this one)

Appreciate the importance of chemistry and connection.

Live passionately!

Be what you see is what you get!  Be genuine!

Have the confidence to know that you are an incredible unique person, and then live your life accordingly.

Most importantly, get out there and REALLY LIVE!!……………………………….

Are you really living???
