Reflections, Thoughts & Ponderings

It has indeed been an adventure. I have learned a lot from this trip, and had a pretty good time. Mostly, I have learned to appreciate where I live and what I have, and the happy and uplifting people in my life.

To conclude this journey, I have put together some reflections, thoughts and ponderings from this experience and past ones:

    * Always show your appreciation and gratitude.
    * Call it like you see it.
    * Think before you act, before you react, before you speak.
    * Give people the benefit of the doubt.
    * Look at the big picture.
    * Live and let live.
    * Shit happens; roll with it.
    * (Some) People are strange.
    * Expectations lead to disappointments.
    * You're not going to like everyone, and not everyone is going to like you.
    * Don't take life too seriously.
    * More love; less hate.
    * Oh, the games people play.
    * Karma can be a bitch.
    * First impressions aren't necessarily lasting impressions.
    * Never say "Never".
    * Maximize life.
    * Stick up for yourself.
    * Patience is a virtue, but patience has a limit.
    * Be caring.
    * You can't always get what you want.
    * If you make a mistake, admit it.
    * You choose your own path.
    * Trust and respect are two things that are earned.
    * Life is too short to sweat the small stuff.
    * You don't have to take crap from anyone.
    * If you don't have a sense of humor, you have no sense at all.
    * You just can't see it all.
    * Don't hold grudges.
    * If you are unhappy with your life, then change it.
    * Don't ever let anyone tell you who or what to be.
    * Appreciate what you have.
    * Sometimes you just have to suck it up.
    * You can choose your friends, and you can choose your family.
    * Compassion is key.
    * Remember to smile.
    * Power, greed, and control will kill us all.
    * If you can help someone out in a small way, do it.
    * To help get thru life, take deep breaths.
    * Ask questions.
    * Be humble.
    * Be happy.
    * Life is what you make it.
    * Sometimes the truth hurts.
    * Give back.
    * Be kinder.
    * It never hurts to ask.
    * Perception is not everything.
    * Assuming makes an ASS out of U and ME.
    * Look people in the eye.
    * Things always get better.
    * Before you judge or draw conclusions, put yourself in that person's shoes.
    * Learn from the past; live for the moment.
    * You pack it, you carry it.
    * Fold and roll.
    * Listen more; talk less.
    * Jealously can sure run deep.
    * No matter how tough you think you have it, there is usually someone else worse off.
    * Focus on the positive.
    * Take time to smell the roses.
    * People make all the difference.
    * The world is definitely pink.
