Life Lessons

Throughout my life, I have come to understand that there are some basic truths in the world. Below is a list of some of these truths:

1) You can not change the way a person is. You can only change the way you react to that person.

2) Few people ever change. The reality is that years do not change a person's fundamental being. How they are when they are young is the same as they will be when they are older.

3) A person will promise almost anything to get someone else to give them something they really want. Then, after they are given that special gift, they will quickly search to find some reason or excuse to refuse to keep their promises.

4) There is ALWAYS a way to accomplish what you wish to accomplish.

5) If you left someone behind in your life, there was a reason. You may not remember why you chose to take a path that did not include them. However, if you choose to reconnect with that person, you will quickly recall your reasons for leaving them behind. Each choice that you have made has a reason.

Oh, I'm with you on #5...sometimes when you choose to reconnect with certain people you see all that was good in the first place and then "other things" come flooding in...oh yeah...

#1 is one of the most important life lessons I've ever learned, and passed on to my kids.
