As 2014 draws to a close here is a (not nearly complete) list of the lesson I learned this past year:
Ignore the sign: Jump in the bouncy castle.
There are two ways you can look at your life: What happened to you or What you did. You only get to pick one.
If you want the truth ask a 5 year old.
Find ways to forgive mistakes.
Not every problem has an entirely acceptable solution.
To get things done tell an amazing story.
Travel every chance you get. Travel makes you brave.
Be grateful for every moment you have. Every single one.
