Life Lessons at age 31

I haven’t posted anything on here in quite a well, just because I haven’t. No good excuse really. My free time is spent doing other things, but I am going to try and blog more, it really is quite therapeutic. I found something on StumbleUpon today that got me to thinking. I may not have all of life’s answers, but I have found a few on my first 31 years on this earth. So I spent a little time today writing down 31 Life Lessons I have learned thus far. I know people stress about getting older, but I for one cannot wait to get older. Imagine all the things you will know when you are 80?!
