I follow a blog, marc & angel HACK LIFE, that has lots of good, interesting ideas throughout it. At the end of one particular entry, Marc Chernoff writes, “But above all, laugh when you can, apologize when you should, and let go of what you can’t change. Life is short, yet amazing. Enjoy the ride.” I second the motion. It’s advice I wish I had followed everyday of my life. But, you live and learn, and life goes on. The operative word there is “learn.”
So, today I’d like to quote a part of one of Marc’s writings. As a matter of fact it’s there that I got the quote from the previous paragraph. The name of this particular entry is 18 Things I Wish Someone Told Me When I Was 18. It has lots of advice that would have been great to tell yourself when you were 18. Things like “Commit yourself to making lots of mistakes,” “Find hard work you love doing,” and “Invest time, energy and money in yourself every day.” They’re all good ideas. I wish they, and many more like them, had been drilled into my thick skull before I’d left home.
