Lessons Learned

As much as I sometimes hate to admit it, I do believe that everything happens for a reason and we should learn something from all of our experiences.

As you may or may not know, I'm not 100% happy with my job currently. There are a lot of reasons that would require a whole new post, but it has caused me to think about a few things lately.

Some lessons that I've learned along the way, that (hopefully) will make me a better person.

{A.} You can tell a lot about a person by the way they treat the people they manage.

{B.} Kind of a subscript to A. - When you are the person managing - try to remember how you like to be treated and treat others that way. It will go a long way to building lasting relationships.

{C.} Life is short and every day is precious. So put the to-do list aside to take your nephews on a "field trip." You'll be glad you did.

{D.} Dance! Do not concern yourself with what your abilities as a dancer are - just get out there and have fun! I may look like an idiot on the dance floor, but trust me, I am having more fun out there than you are having sitting on a stool watching me.

{E.} Be yourself. If you are true to who you are in your soul, everything else will work itself out. (It may not be on your timeline, but it will work out.)

{F.} The only way to get love, is to give it away. So love freely
