Life Lessons Beyond the News, Politics and other Noise.


As I recently hit the ½ century mark I thought it was a good time to share some basic reminders that have been beneficial to me to get through this thing called life.  We can only control ourselves and how we act and react. Life is what we make of it regardless of those around us.

50 years of life lessons… here are some of my favorites:

  1. Don’t sweat the small stuff (Life is full of challenges, focus on what is truly important)
  2. Smile and say Thank You (you might just brighten someone’s day)
  3. Be humble and laugh at yourself when you can (We all make mistakes and do silly things)
  4. Remember that each of us are important and can make a positive impact on others
  5. Find time to pray and be thankful for the opportunity of Life that GOD has given us
  6. Never stop learning and trying to better yourself
  7. Enjoy the blessings along the way (time goes by fast with no guarantees)
  8. It is OK to ask for help when you need it, in turn help others when you can
  9. Today’s technology can make a 50-year-old feel really stupid but we “middle-agers” can still offer a lot to the next generation
  10. Never forget to tell those that are important to you that “They are important to you”
