Lessons learned . . .

In no particular order of importance . . .


Stay active, and don't give in to society's perception of how a person of a specific age should act . . .


Keep learning, no matter what it is . . .


Seeing the humor in things will take us a long way . . .


Find the silver lining . . .

The Universe is speaking to us all the time . . . It's a good idea to listen!


Minimize worrying, because so much of the worrying we do is completely unnecessary and unproductive . . .


Be consciously grateful . . .

Stay away from extension ladders as much as possible . . .

People always show us by their actions, more so than their words . . .


Be in sync with the Universe . . . 

Never wish harm to any other person .  .  . VERY bad for the karma!

Take me for granted at your peril . . .  LOL  

When looking after an inebriated friend, it's wise not to stand in FRONT of him . . .


Recognize the Divine nature of all human beings . . .


What goes around comes around . . .  ALWAYS . . .

We can be the teacher, and the student, at the same time . . . 

Timing is everything, and we can't force something to happen before its time . . .

Listen to the Voice . . . When it tells us something isn't right, it usually isn't . . . When it tells us someone is bullshitting us, they usually are . . . The VOICE!


We are not always as important to another person as they are to us . . . It's just a fact . . .

Wearing something red is a good pick-me-up . . . 

We often don't realize what the lesson is until much later . . .


When we screw up, recognize it, take responsibility, and if necessary, take the steps to make it right . . .

Too much thinking can be dangerous . . . 

When I was twenty-one, I had a knee injury that necessitated a full leg cast for a few weeks . . . When the cast came off, I told my girlfriend, I don't need these crutches anymore!  She said, That's a VERY bad idea . . . For the next three days I was in the worst pain of my life . . .  Lesson?  Listening to the advice of a wise girlfriend is ALWAYS a good idea! 

Foreplay baby . . .


Never close the door to a person who has wronged us . . . They can change, we can forgive, and they may yet have a huge role to play in our lives . . .

A good lasagna recipe is crucial . . .

Don't be late for anything . . . 


The opposite sex has a lot to teach us . . .


Alone time is to be treasured . . .


Time with friends and family is to be treasured . . .


We never know where inspiration will come from, or when . . .


Don't be a punching bag . . . Stand up for yourself, and don't put up with unnecessary crap from people . . .


Forgive . . . And that includes ourselves . . .

Happy feet . . .


Being on a spiritual Path does NOT mean putting up with crap from people . . . Being spiritual does not mean meek and mild . . . Meek and mild doesn't get us far . . .

Awareness and thinking are not the same . . .

Wisdom and understanding are not the same .  .  .

 A person who is wise and aware functions at a higher level than one who is thinking and understanding . . .


Treat people with love and respect, and they'll usually respond in kind . . .

Everything is a teacher . . . 

Smile and laugh baby! 

Watching comedy videos on Youtube can be just the ticket to feeling better . . . Nothing like humor to get the endorphins pumping . . . 

Besides our health, the most important thing we have is our attitude . . . 

Spirituality and assertiveness are completely compatible . . .

And finally . . . People always remember how we make them feel . . . Make them feel special, and they'll love us . . . Make them feel taken for granted, and they'll eventually leave us . . .

Life is beautiful!!


Peace and love . . .


Until next time . . . Ciao!!
