    • Some important lessons learned in the last ten years for me were:

      *YOU are your own best company

      *Happiness is within, no person, place or thing is the key to your happiness

      *If it is to be, it’s up to ME!

      *The Universe (or your beloved deity) ALWAYS has your back, whether you believe it or no

      *What thoughts we think determine the outcome of our lives

      *What you put up with, you end up with

      *Think of what you want and NOT what you don’t

      *If standing up for yourself constitutes being a BITCH to the general public, so be it. It’s nice being a  Babe- In- Total- Control-of  Herself

      *You are smarter than you think

      *A man is a luxury, NOT a necessity, so choose wisely

      *Living Well is the best revenge

      So many lessons...shall I go on? estatic

    • Dorothy THAT is a great list!

      I can say that those would all be on my list along with:

      It truly is better to give than receive
      Don’t look back at regrets but forwards with anticipation
      Bigger is not necesarily better

    • Life is too short to hold grudges.

      If you keep reliving the past and revisiting old wounds, you will become bitter.  Best to try and forget and move on.

      Forgive and forget.

      You can’t please everybody.

      Sometimes you just have to listen to your heart (and gut feelings).

    • That even though your body is sending you signals that it wants to get pregnant(when I was 35) don’t fall for it.  I was dating again and my body was sending me signals to get pregnant.  I was dreaming of pregnancy alot.  Not fun especially if you don’t have a solid relationship with someone.  I was actually interviewing all my dates for the possible fatherhood role.  How disgusting.  I think alot of women are running into this problem these days.  Hooking up with just anyone because their body is ready to have a child.  Then the divorce factor is so easy.  My advice to all women who have not conceived by the time they are 35, DON‘T! You will seek out men with blinders on.  Your offspring deserve better than the chump on the street corner.  At least go to a sperm bank where you can choose the background of the donor.  You have a better chance of great genes and at least you will prepare yourself on taking care of the child yourself.  This running around trying to collect child support from dead-beats is the outcome of a biological clock ticking, if you aren’t married before the bio bomb is set to go off.

    • Actions/Things/Events I thought were earthshatteringly important meant nothing when one single person was taken from this earth. Add another person taken 2 months later...yet a third almost taken...

      Outlook on life is Drastically different, I respect things I thought were miniscule, and I cherish  things I would have not thought twice about.

      Likewise things that seemed utterly urgent are significantly unimportant.
