What things have you learned so far in your life?


  1. Love it! I've really enjoyed your lists. I love #17. Everytime I lay down for a nap, the phone rings. So annoying!

  2. I love this list, Suey! And now I need to listen to some Josh Groban ... while eating chocolate, of course. :)

  3. This is so amazingly beautiful and resonating! I have truly enjoyed your lists, but this is one I want to remember and revisit often!

  4. I love this list. Some many things made me laugh and think, yep. #2 resonates with me so much because that's how I feel about my life. It also makes me kind of sad, but I try not to dwell on it. And, #28 is SO TRUE.

  5. Wanna know which ones resonate with me... #10, #15, #47... which leads me to #4! And of course... #42!!! BooYah!!!

  6. Love this list! Number 31? So true. I sometimes think I enjoy my adult kids even more - they get to be friends, too.
