Lessons 2010 Taught Me

  • Everyone should live alone, no roommates, for at least a little while. You'll learn a lot about yourself.
  • Humans aren't meant to be alone.
  • Protect your heart. It's your most precious possession. Be careful about who you let in.
  • Life after college is more different than you ever could have imagined. Don't stress about it. Just roll with the punches
  • Forgive, and move on.
  • Learn from your mistakes. Living with regrets is no way to live. It pollutes your heart.
  • Be nice to people whenever you can, especially strangers. You may make someone's day without realizing it.
  • Knowing who you are is sometimes more important than knowing what to do with your life.
  • It's not the destination that matters so much. It's the path you take to get there.
  • It's okay to be an adult. Everyone has to grow up sometime.
  • Don't settle.
  • God has amazing plans for you. You just need to be patient. You'll discover them on His time, not yours.
  • The world is full of stupid people. This will never change.
  • People hurt you in ways you won't expect.
  • God will always send you a friend. You just have to keep your eyes open.
  • Being a loyal, trustworthy friend is important. Be a fierce friend. Defend your best friends. Keep their secrets. Treat friends like they're family.
  • It's okay to ask for help. Everyone needs it at some point.
  • There are some people in this world who are inherently manipulative and selfish. These people are poison, and will contaminate your soul if you let them.
  • Amidst all of the growing up and being an adult, don't forget to be silly. Laugh about stupid things with your friends.
  • Being a people person is not really as hard as it seems. You just have to be brave.
  • "It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are." --E.E. Cummings
