01. 16 LESSONS I LEARNED IN MY 20's

1. You're beautiful.


2. Despite what we've been told, you can't have everything in all ways all at once. Anything worth having requires a lot of work and time.


3. You must do what scares you.


4. Adult friendships require constant effort and time.


5. When opportunity knocks, you have to answer the door. And when a door closes, you have to open a window.


6. Go to therapy. You probably need it.


7. Strike a balance between saving and experiencing.


8. Make exercise a habit, like brushing your teeth. You'll be exponentially happier as a result.


9. When someone shows you who they are, believe them.


10. A drama-free and boring life is actually a great thing.


11. Know that everyone is fighting a private battle. Respond to rudeness with kindness when you can.


12. Your attitude is everything.


13. Be grateful. Don't take anything for granted.


14. Try not to make fear-based decisions, especially in business.


15. The effort it takes to be supremely organized with your paperwork is worth it.


16. Everything you think you know for sure will probably change. And that's okay.


02. Don't bother putting your hand over my mouth to shut me up. I will lick you.


03. Teenage post: I feel so helpless without a hairband on my wrist.


04. Calm down bro. It's P.E. not the Olympics.


05. I threw a shotgun shell at my daughter's date and he caught it. Told him it travels much faster after 10pm.


06. Being sick is just your body's way of saying you're way too awesome and you need to slow down so everyone else can catch up.

13. Keep calm and dream on ...


14. Turkey is coming. Get your fat pants ready.


15. I've lost people and found them again. The second time around, things just made more sense. Honestly, timing has a lot to do with everything. Sometimes you aren't ready for each other yet.


16. I love you so much my baby darling, but the second your Father comes home I'm gonna bust outta here like I'm escaping Alcatraz.


17. WAKE UP and WORK OUT !


18. There's no such thing as a mean dog. They are products of their environment. Cats on the other hand, can be real b******s just because it's Wednesday.
