Lessons


Some things that 2010 taught me:

  • Always listen to the little voice within. 99% of my 'good' life choices and decisions have stemmed from listening to this instinctual utterance.

  • Also related to this is paying heed to gut instinct. Everyone has instinct for a reason but day to day life tends to divert our attention from it.

  • Don't listen to naysayers and don't underestimate the power of being determined. The only one who should make the final decision to do something is you.

  • Regardless of their actions and words, don't take it for granted that someone feels the same way about you as you do about them.

  • Respect is not instantaneous. It is earned. Ditto with trust.

  • Don't throw out leftover wine: Freeze into ice cubes for future use in sauces/casseroles.

  • Exercise is important-it helps keep the mind and the body healthy.

  • Despite the facade I've constructed of being impervious to other people, I'm sensitive and rather than continuing to see this as a weakness, I've embraced it.

  • Keeping the previous statement in mind, i also adhere to the adage of "walk softly but carry a big stick".

  • You can have a fancy car, a huge apartment, a wardrobe full of clothing, a number of the latest technological gadgets but at the end of the day; if you don't have your health and your friends, you ain't got jack.

  • True friendship is priceless and gratitude for it should be expressed regularly.

What is 'leftover wine'?

I don't understand.

Lovely post, though.

Radge: It's what happens when a whiskey drinker attempts a whole bottle of vino by herself :)
