9 of #365LifeLessons – Everyone Doesn’t Win

Despite what school is teaching you by giving everyone a trophy, a ribbon or an award, life doesn’t work like that. You don’t get something you haven’t earned. There is only one first place. And sometimes, not winning is just what we need.  It isn’t always about winning, but rather about the journey and the lessons we take from the experience.

What I’ve Learned, What I’m Learning – #365LifeLessons

It’s my first born son’s Birthday today. In thinking about such a tremendous day and how it changed my life, and in honor of him, I’ve decided to post one life lesson a day for the next year. He’s always asking me why/how/what I’ve learned – and he’s always teaching me new lessons – and his Birthday inspired me to record some of those things here. They will be simple little snippets that will cover what my life entails: motherhood, running a business, managing others, pushing myself – essentially, sharing, learning, living.

If they help inspire you in any way, that’s a bonus. Thanks for reading.

Trust your gut. 99.9% of the time it knows what’s best for you. Listen to your inner voice and really hear it above all the other noise. You know you better than anyone. This doesn’t mean following it is always easy – the best, most rewarding things in life are those for which we work hardest.
