Locked and loaded

I'm was a Groundhog's Day baby. I'll celebrate Saturday for the 55th time. And I'm not going down without a fight.

Here's a few Things I Have Learned:

  1. In high- stakes poker, sometimes you have to be willing to lose everything to win.
  2. Kids are far more intuitive than they’re given credit for.
  3. Everyone has a story to tell and something to teach you.
  4. Follow your instincts.
  5. If your feelings are hurt, don’t show it.
  6. Travel is the best teacher.
  7. It’s a full-time job managing yourself -- let alone anyone else.
  8. Keep on the sunny side.
  9. If you’re lucky enough to work at something you love, enjoy the hell out of it. If not, find a really cool hobby.
  10. You’re always the same age inside.
  11. Don't worry about things that haven’t happened -- it’s the unforeseen that will blind side you.
  12. Hold fast to your values.
  13. There are many paths to enlightenment.
