One of my mothers favorite things to say was "live and learn," and I hope I have. One thing I have learned is that there are some things I wish I had learned sooner.....
How to take a compliment.
Being kind matters more than than being right.
If someone takes something out of the refrigerator and says, "smell this," don't!
That a healthy looking suntan is not really so healthy.
The person I least expect might someday be my best friend. Give everyone a chance.
People will still be nice to me, even if I'm not wearing any make-up.
It is sometimes okay to let someone do more for me than I can ever possibly repay.
The difference between good fats and bad fats.
I really shouldn't put metal in the microwave.
Whatever I think kids know, they always know way more than I think they know.
If I've forgotten some one's name, it is okay to ask.
It isn't always my fault.
There are some people with whom I will never be totally comfortable.
Wasting time isn't always a waste of time.
Another one of my mother's favorite things to say was "pretty is as pretty does." There's a lot of learning in those few words.
I posted part of this a looong time ago, but I keep learning more things I wish I had learned sooner.
