A friend of mine says there's nothing like a lesson you buy and pay for yourself. It's her way of saying you learn more from lessons that cost you, and I couldn't agree more. As much as I adore the teachers in my life, there have been times when they could not have taught me what a choice I made did.
You know, like when you go on a shopping spree simply because you feel like shopping and the next morning, your car won't start and suddenly you're having to scramble for the money to get it fixed? I call that a life lesson. Or when I don't bother to put my reading glasses on because I'm sure that the recipe called for a tablespoon of cayenne pepper and not a teaspoon. Yep. Life lesson. And I won't make that mistake again. That's why I'm grateful for life lessons today.
My thoughts, experiences, challenges, and goals. Right here. At least once a week or so. Oh, and opinions, too. Those will definitely come in. Join me!
