16 Most Important Things I've Learned

I love October!!! The change in weather, college football, reviewing the year and planning for the next and, of course, my birthday. It’s been 45 Octobers since the digits one and six defined my age. Hmmm ---- from sweet to seasoned? Well, maybe, but I would prefer to call it from sweet to splendid and skillful.

Please indulge me as I tell you the 16 most important things I’ve learned. There are actually 61 things, but my graphic artist says I have to keep it to one page. The list is in no particular order.

1. Don’t worry about what people think—they don’t know all the facts and they are usually only thinking about themselves anyway.
2. Our problems and/or challenges always seem worse at night.
3. You are smarter than you realize, and certainly smarter than most politicians.
4. Little fibs grow into lies that become uncontrollable.
5. “Bad” days are a part of life --- suck it up and look forward to tomorrow.
6. There are times we think we are doing the right and good thing that later prove to have been wrong and not so good ---- don’t beat yourself up over it.
7. God and answers reside in my garden.
8. Every time you criticize someone you define yourself.
9. You cannot visualize yourself out of a problem or challenge ---- it always takes action and usually more that you think.
10. It’s okay to air your anger on paper, but remember to destroy it after you’ve read it to yourself a few times to get it out of your system.
11. NEVER air your anger in an email.
12. Gracious trumps every time.
13. Don’t pretend to care; it’s insulting for the receiver and chips away at your integrity.
14. Get dressed and comb your hair before you leave your bedroom in the morning – the day always goes better when you greet it with respect.
15. Reminisce often but don’t live in the past. The future is too exciting and rewarding.
16. Know when it’s time to move on and welcome the next step; endeavor in life’s journey.

Ahhh, October ---- what a wonderful month! Take this month to compose your own list of 16 pearls of wisdom. It’s a great way to reground yourself, take a breath and prepare for the hectic holiday season just around the corner.

Please share with me your important lessons. Thanks! Bevv
