Sunday, August 10th, will be my 47th birthday. Today I started reflecting on all the life's lessons I have learned so far.. so I decided to make a list of idioms, clever sayings and just plain truths that represent where I am developmentally. Some might not agree with any of these, some may say WTF? is she talking about, and some of these lessons may change as I age and mature. Either way these are some big philosophies that shape my thinking every day. I will probably add to this list until Sunday. If anything... this list is some tangible advice for myself to hold onto when times get uncertain.

My blog sucks but I am okay with that.
Live every day fully. You can sleep when you're dead.
Love yourself before you can love another.
Just because you are alter-abled doesn't mean you have to give up fun and/or challenging yourself physically.
Life really begins at 30, not 50.
