I’ve Learned – Lessons 1-10

I've Learned

For the past decade or more I have written little notes to myself of life’s lessons I have learned. My goal was to put them all together when I had saved enough and publish them in a book. The only problem is they are on little scraps of paper around my house, in random Word documents or in saved emails.

Now that I have this forum, I have decided that I am going to start publishing them here, one at a time. Some of the lessons are positive. I hope very much that most of them will be viewed that way. Some will likely sound quite negative, but all of them are lessons that life has taught me.

  1. Great lessons here, Wolfe. Thanks for sharing. One I’ve learned is to laugh at myself, for if I can the world will not take me seriously. 😉 No really, if you can learn to laugh at yourself then then you will be much happier in the world because life is beautiful.

    1. I agree completely. I may borrow that idea and write a post in the future. Thanks for leaving a comment.
