What I Know For Sure

Recently I have been pushing myself to take the time to reflect, write down and share with you all lessons these past 21 years have taught me.

  1. Cherish the ones you love, they can be gone in the blink of an eye.
  2. Paradise is not a place, its a state of mind.
  3. Love is the greatest gift you can give.
  4. Don't judge people, everyone has their own stories and struggles.
  5. Be honest with yourself and with others.
  6. Don't talk bad about someone, it only reflects on the person you are.
  7. Respect is not given, it is earned.
  8. Do what makes you happy, not what society or your peers want you to do.
  9. Always be kind, everyone is facing their own battles.
  10. Trust takes a long time to build and can be broken in seconds.
  11. Always go with yourself, never against yourself.
  12. Free yourself from negative people.
  13. Words can hurt just as much as actions.
  14. Give compliments often, it can transform someone's day.
  15. Your heart is your best compass.
  16. Relationships are meant to help you, not hurt you.
  17. Lies only exist if we believe them.
  18. Jealousy and insecurity are ugly and will eat up your own beauty.
  19. Always smile, it can open many opportunities.
  20. Always tell the ones you love that you love them.
  21. Have confidence in yourself.

I encourage you all to take a moment and reflect on your own life lessons and share this with your friends, family, co-workers or blog audience. You never know who needs to hear one of these lessons to help get them through their day.
