  To
 celebrate
 growing
 older,
  I
 once
 wrote
 the
 “
 45
 lessons
 ”
 life
 taught
 me.
 
 
  This
 is
 something
 we
 should
 all
 read
 at
 least
 once
 a
 week!!
 
  Please,
 make
 sure
 you
 read
 to
 the
 end.
 
 
  1)
 Life
 isn't
 fair,
 but
 it's
 still
 good.
 
 
  2)
 When
 in
 doubt,
 just
 take
 the
 next
 small
 step.
 
 
  3)
 Life
 is
 too
 short
 to
 waste
 time
 hating
 anyone.
 
 
  4)
 Your
 job
 won't
 take
 care
 of
 you
 when
 you
 are
 sick.
 Your
  friends
 and
 parents
 will.
 Stay
 in
 touch.
 
 
  5)
 Pay
 off
 your
 credit
 cards
 every
 month.
 
 
  6)
 You
 don't
 have
 to
 win
 every
 argument.
 Agree
 to
  disagree.
 
 
  7)
 Cry
 with
 someone..
 It's
 more
 healing
 than
 crying
 alone.
 
 
  8)
 
 It's
 OK
 to
 get
 angry
 with
 God.
 He
 can
 take
 it.
 
 
  9)
 Save
 for
 retirement
 starting
 with
 your
 first
 paycheck.
 
 
  10)
 When
 it
 comes
 to
 chocolate,
 resistance
 is
 futile.
 
 
 

 


 

11)
 Make
 peace
 with
 your
 past
 so
 it
 won't
 screw
 up
 the
  present.
 
 
  12)
 It's
 OK
 to
 let
 your
 children
 see
 you
 cry.
 
 
  13)
 Don't
 compare
 your
 life
 to
 others.
 You
 have
 no
 idea
  what
 their
 journey
 is
 all
 about.
 
 
  14)
 If
 a
 relationship
 has
 to
 be
 a
 secret,
 you
 shouldn't
 be
 in
  it.
 
 
  15)
 Everything
 can
 change
 in
 the
 blink
 of
 an
 eye.
 But
 don't
  worry;
 God
 never
 blinks.
 
 
  16)
 Take
 a
 deep
 breath.
 It
 calms
 the
 mind.
 
 
  17)
 Get
 rid
 of
 anything
 that
 isn't
 useful,
 beautiful
 or
 joyful.
 
 
  18)
 Whatever
 doesn't
 kill
 you
 really
 does
 make
 you
  stronger.
 
 
  19)
 It's
 never
 too
 late
 to
 have
 a
 happy
 childhood.
 But
 the
  second
 one
 is
 up
 to
 you
 and
 no
 one
 else.
 
 
  20)
 When
 it
 comes
 to
 going
 after
 what
 you
 love
 in
 life,
  don't
 take
 no
