31 Things I Know for Sure

On my birthday I was thinking about all the bullshit I've been through and the lessons I received from them. I have learned so much from past situations, good and bad, that have made me the woman I am today and to be honest, I'm grateful for them all. Listed below are some daily affirmations that I live by on a day to day basis:

1. Don’t take any wooden nickels. In other words, don’t take any bullshit from anyone.
2. Be polite.
3. Say what you mean and mean what you say.
4. Don’t bite off more than you can chew.
5. Keep throwing shit against the wall until something sticks. Trust me, something will stick.
6. If you see the invisible, you can achieve the impossible.
7. Bring your A game in everything you do.
8. Your net worth is determined by your network.
9. Never take anything personal, it’s just business.
10. When people show you who they are, believe them.
11. Stop comparing yourself to the next person. You are you for a reason.

26. Give your loved ones their flowers while they are still here. 
27. Don't make permanent decisions off of temporary feelings.
