lifeI decided to pull put my journal and I remembered that I had started to make a list of life lessons, most are personal lessons but some I’ve learned through other’s experiences. The wonderful thing is that as we age, we have different experiences that we can learn something from. Whenever I’ve been through a bad break-up or something difficult I try to consider what lesson did I need to learn. I believe that sometimes, people are placed in our lives to teach us about ourselves. So, here are a few lessons that I’ve learned along the way. I’m sure there will be many to come…..
