10 Things I’ve Learned As A Person (So Far)

In no particular order.

  1. At 43, I think I’m finally starting to get my shit together. Sometimes I wish that had happened a lot sooner, but I wouldn’t be who I am today if that were the case.
  2. Let go of regrets, annoyances, grudges, and general negativity. You don’t need that in your life. Deal with it at the moment, and move on.
  3. Say “I love you” to those you love. Constantly. Especially your spouse/significant other. Don’t let anyone ever wonder about your love for them.
  4. If someone decides they don’t want to be a part of your life anymore, let them go, even if it hurts like hell. You can’t force people to be in a relationship with you.
  5. Don’t pass up a chance to eat a donut (or your sweet of choice if you’re not into donuts, although seriously, who doesn’t like donuts?).
  6. Always tell your spouse/significant other “I love you” before going to sleep, even if (especially if) you’ve been arguing. You’ve heard this before. Do it.
  7. Take care of your finances. Today. Seriously. Draw a line in the sand and start from this day forward. And when you fall off the wagon (because we will), dust yourself off and get back on again.
  8. Time with your loved ones is far more important than some extra bucks on the paycheck.
  9. Travel. Whether far or near, it doesn’t matter. Just travel.
  10. Nurture your spirit. For me, this is about nurturing my relationship with God. For you, it may take a different form. However you do it, nurture your spirit. We are far more than mere flesh.
