APRIL 8, 2009

I just turned 26 years old today! Yeah right! I'm now officially on the beginning of my LATE 20's! Michelle said that statement earlier today! It doesn't scare me though. I'm even excited! I wonder what's in store for me this year! Whatever they are, I hope it's better and brighter! Lol!

I was searching through Google for relevant post about turning 26 today and I stumbled upon the website Marc And Angel Hack Life where the author posted about 26 Life Lessons Learned by Age 26. The post really made me think over my life and how I lived it. I definitely can relate to the 26 Life Lessons listed on that post. I also want to share what I read. Thus, here's the list:

  1. Being an adult can be fun when you are acting like a child.
  2. Love has nothing to do with looks, but everything to do with time, trust, and interest.
  3. Laughing, crying, joy and anger… All are a vital. All make us human.
  4. The greatest truths in life are uncovered with simple, steady awareness.
  5. Greed will bury even the lucky eventually.
  6. Bad things do happen to good people.
  7. Paving your own road is intelligent only if nobody has gone exactly where you are going.
  8. Uncertainty is caused by a lack of knowledge. Hesitation is the product of fear.
  9. Time heals all wounds… regardless of how you feel right now.
  10. Most of the time what you are looking for is right in front of you.
  11. Your health is your life.
  12. Chance is a gift, so act on chance when given the opportunity.
  13. Kindness and hard work will take you further than intelligence.
  14. People deserve a second chance, but not a third.
  15. Marry your best friend.
  16. Take lots of pictures. Someday you’ll be really glad you did.
  17. Money makes life easier only when the money is yours free and clear.
  18. Carelessness is the root of failure
  19. Your actions now create memories you will reminisce and talk about in your elder years.
  20. Stepping outside of your comfort zone will put things into perspective from an angle you can’t grasp now.
  21. Motivation comes in short bursts. Act while it’s hot.
  22. Purposely ignoring the obvious is like walking backwards toward the enemy.
  23. Taking ownership of failure builds the foundation for success.
  24. First impressions are completely worthless 50% of the time.
  25. Personal glory lasts forever.
  26. If you never act, you will never know for sure.

Belated Happy Birthday, Ally.
I came here by way of blog hopping to Jena Isle's.

I'll be going to read your story soon. I'm in the middle of making some wild game jerky. Just took a short break from that.

Those 26 life lessons learned are all wonderful thing to go by throughout our lives.

Have a great weekend,
