Kelsey's List

I took this from my friend Kelsey's blog. It is her list of things she has learned thus far in life. Very true, insightful, and moving. Thanks Kelsey! : )

Things I’ve Learned...
- No matter which path you choose to take in life, even if it is the wrong one, you will always end up right where you're supposed to be.

- If someone doesn't change the first time they say they're going to, chances are they aren't planning to at all.

- You can only get by on charm for so long. After a while, you better know something.

- Don't waste your time with fake friends. After a while, you will realize who the fake ones are. Once you do, move on.

- Never expect anything out of anyone. If you do, you will be let down the majority of the time. It's better to be pleasantly surprised.

- No matter how thin you slice it, there are always two sides.

- It's much easier to react than it is to think.

- Always leave loved ones with loving words, even when you're angry with them. It may be the last time you see them.

- You can always keep going long after you think you can't.

- Either you control your attitude or it controls you.

- Sometimes a good cry is all you need.

- Learning to forgive takes practice.

- There are people who love you dearly but just don't know how to show it.

- Sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down will be the ones to help you get back up.

- Sometimes when you're angry you have the right to be angry but that doesn't give you the right to be cruel.

- No matter how much you care, some people just don't care back.

- Maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you've had.

- No matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

- It isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.

- No matter how bad your heart is broken, the world doesn't stop for your grief.

- Our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are but we are responsible for who we become.

- It takes years to build up trust and only seconds to destroy it.

- It's not WHAT you have in your life but WHO you have in your life that counts.

- Two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.

- No matter how many friends you have, if you are their pillar you will feel lonely and lost at the times you need them the most.
