We all wish we had that REALLY smart friend or mentor we could call on when we need guidance.
But instead we have Reddit. And sometimes that’s good enough. 😀
32. Bragging Not Allowed
Have more than you show, speak less than you know.
31. Life’s Not Easy…
Getting drunk is easy, having a life takes work.
30. Water That Garden!
The grass isn’t greener on the other side, it’s greener where you water it. Don’t spend life daydreaming about ‘what could be’ in a different place or circumstance. Instead, invest your energy in what is right in front of you and see how it can be cultivated into something beautiful.
29. The Tables Have Turned, Judgement!
Good judgment comes from experience. Experience often comes from bad judgment.
28. Love Yourself
If you do not love, honor or respect yourself, you will never get that from another person because external relationships are a reflection of the internal state. You did not deserve to be abused, but how well you sat back and accepted or rejected the abuse depended on what you thought you were worth. If you thought you were worth better, then you would demand better. If you don’t want crap, stop accepting crap and demand something more.
27. The Blame Game
Stop blaming other people for your problems and take responsibility for yourself.
26. Just Do It!
No one who is great at something was always great at it.
25. Save. Save. Save.
One for me was just “Spend less than you make and actively save”. Simple but life changing.
Don’t sweat the petty things, and don’t pet the sweaty things.
