Today is pretty much a copy and paste job, but so worth it. Marco is one of my dear friends, and yesterday on his 23rd birthday, he decided to share 23 lessons on his Twitter. The nature of our friendship is wholly inappropriate, but all about love, so I’m trying my best to not slip in a genital joke here, seeing as he kept it so classy. He’s also an avid reader, and regular follower f this blog. So this is a well-deserved shout-out. When I phoned to wish him, he said that he realized that some of them were clichés, but I say “Boo you whore!”, they are fantastic!
You all know that I’m all about a good lesson. So here are the 23 lessons from Marco:
#23 dont drink more than one cup of good filter coffee.
#22 throw caution to the wind… but beware the wind doesnt blow in the wrong direction…
#21 age is really only a number no matter what ignorant people tell you. But…act your age. When its done its gone
#20 give. Give until you cant. Then give some more.
#19 be aware of who you are in and outside of what others perceive you to be. You are your own ambassador.
#18 Take a moment. Breath. Theres more to life than notifications.
#17 find someone that you can trust. It takes a lot of bruising at first but once you find that person… never let go.
#16 family is everything. Find yours wherever you need to and live for them.
#15 be nice. There are no points for winning arguments. Even when youre right.
#14 dont diet. Your body is yours take care of. The key is balance.
#13 work smart. Hardworkers usually get a lot done. Smart workers get it done right.
#12 dont compare yourself. Everyone has their own journey and yours is up to you by you FOR you.
#11 money isnt the root of all evil. Allowing it to rule you is.
#10 dont burn bridges. The world is getting smaller and constantly turning. Some day that friend will be needed.
#9 take care of something. A plant a pet a family member. Take the attention away from you.
#8 try. Whenever things look out of reach keep trying. Failure is only a guide to the right destination. Success.
#7 silence is mandatory. You need time to reflect before you speak or sleep or leave. It makes interacting easier.
#6 find yourself before you go looking for love. You kinda need the one before the other.
#5 fads never last. You dont have to own everything to OWN EVRRYTHING.
#4 the truest beauty is found beyond the chiselled features of good bone structure. Focus on what matters.
#3 love deeply love truly but never love freely. Not everyone you befriend is friendly. Take some time to forge bonds
#2 dont take life too seriously. Its transitory so shits bound to happen. Let it. Then learn from it.
#1 Do unto others as…you would LIKE them to do unto you… Even when/if they dont. Especially 🙂
