33 Years of living has allowed me to accumulate various life lessons along the way some were tough some were easy and effortless but each holds their own place of importance.

1. Accepting things as they are is both good and bad

2. People will come in and out of your life, not because they can but because you allow it to happen (Related: How To End Toxic Relationships)

3. Be comfortable being in your own skin (Related: You Are Your Outcome)

4. Notice your reactions both from you and others, as this will not only provide answers to future questions but inform you about previous behaviors as well

5. Stop wasting your time, take advantage of the present moments as you get older the time will pass at a much faster pace

10. The hardest pills to swallow will come from the least expected situations and the most unexpected people
