Life Lessons: A to Z

If you know me at all, then you know I'm not one for organization. My book collection is not sorted by authors last name. My notes for class are usually haphazardly stuffed within the pages of my book. I've used bought several planners that usually only end up opened a few times. BUT I am going to alphabetically organize this blog post. Here's 26 little life lessons and tidbits that I hope you find useful:

A Apologize. Apologies can mean the world to someone. Whether you meant what you said/did or not, you can always apologize for how you made the other person feel.

B Believe in yourself. Without self confidence, you can do nothing. Bite the bullet and just do it, girlfriend. As my Mama always says, "Can't never could do anything"

C Carry deodorant. At all times. I'm serious. You never know when you (or a close friend) will need to be smellin' fresh.

D Drink wine. It makes everything better.

E Eat things that are good for you. I'm not saying don't eat. Just because I eat things that are good for me doesn't mean I am not eating things that don't taste good.

F Forgive. This one goes hand in hand with apologies. Without forgiveness, your relationship with yourself, family, boyfriend, or husband will never be 100% successful. Who are we to hold grudges when our Father has forgiven us our sins?

G Be Greatful. Never take anything for granted. Always try to thank anyone that does something for you... holding the door open, buying you dinner, carrying the heavy groceries in. Let the people around you know they are appreciated.


H Hustle. When you say you'll do something/be somewhere do it in a timely manner. No one likes anyone that is late.

I Iron your clothes. No, not all of them. Definitely not your yoga pants or tee shirts. But your "I want to look important today" pants and "I'm classy and sassy" shirts should always be wrinkle free if you want people to take you seriously.

J Just because your body has orifices doesn't mean you should put things into them. Get your mind out of the gutter, I'm talking about peas in your nose or bugs in your ear or picking your boogers.

K Kiss everyone. Your boyfriend/girlfriend. Your mom, dad, brother. Your dog, cat, ferret. Your in-laws. Neighbors. Mailman. Okay, maybe not those last two... unless you don't think they'll hit you. In that case it may be pretty funny to try it once or twice. Point is, let the ones you love know how much you love them.

L Laugh often. They say laughter is the best medicine. I believe that 100%. And you should always be able to laugh at yourself. If not, you're taking life way to seriously, my friend.
.... ; )[via]

M Make mistakes. Mistakes are okay to make. They are what we learn from, what shapes us in to better, smarter, happier people.

N Never fart on the first date. He probably wont think its as funny as you do.
Also: Never throw a brick straight up. Self explanatory.

O Originality is key. Seriously, no one likes a copycat. Yeah, yeah its the biggest form of flattery blah blah. Its okay to get ideas from other people, but you should always give them credit.

P Preserve your memories. Take pictures. Lots of them. Every day. With modern technology, you should have no excuse not to be able to snap a quick pic with your iPhone when the moment seems right.

Q Question. Its okay to question things. If no one ever asked any questions, this world would be a sad, sad place.

R Read often. Whether its Cosmo, trashy romance novels, romcom fiction, or historical nonfiction, reading is an excellent way to expand our minds.

S Swim parallel to the shore. If you have ever gotten caught in an undertow, you know what I'm talking about. If not, well just remember this.

T Try new things. Where's the fun in life if you're always doing the same thing over and over? Whether its tasting a new fro-yo flavor or jumping out of an airplane, new things are fun and exciting.
 [via]

U Don't underestimate. Anything, really. Especially the distance of a jump, that one can bite you in the ass.

V Voldemort/mean girl memes are amazeballs. They will brighten any day.


 GOD VOLDEMORT!

[via]

W Work hard. Nobody likes anything done half-assed. If you're going to do something, do it right and do it well.
Work it.[via]

X Don't do X. As in ecstasy. Or any drug for that matter. Drugs are bad.

Y Yelling "heads up" does not mean to turn your head upward. You may get hit in the face.

Z Zucchini is good and good for you. Okay, that is true but really I was having a tough time coming up with something that started with "Z"

I hope you all found this useful or at least readable!
What are some things life has taught you along the way?
