34

I turned 34 today. Thought I'd share some life lessons that I've learned along the way.

-No matter how hard you try, you can't fight adulthood.

-We all want to love and be loved. The harder one tries to fight that notion, the harder that person's life is.

-Hipsters live in the now and don't often think about the past. Historians try to live in the now by comparing it with the past.

-The wrong person dissuades you from fulfilling your potential. The right one encourages you no matter what.

-You don't have to be friends with everybody, but try to be as friendly as you can.

-Don't wait until someone's funeral to say how much that person means to you.

-One of the best icebreakers in a conversation is saying, "Hi."

-Like Mr. T says, if you can believe it, you can be it.

-Life is what happens when you're not on social media.

-If you're going through hell, just keep on going.

Happy Birthday, Eric! Looks like you have some wisdom accumulating there. Wow...34. Makes me feel OLD, because I think, when I was 34, my daughter wasn't even in Kindergarten yet, and now she's a jr. in HS! So if you start feeling old for some odd reason, just think, "hey, I'm not as old as J!"
