One day not too long ago..2 Australian mamas were sitting on a back deck, sipping wine.. and talking up all the oxygen available.. when the conversation turned to life lessons.. and what they thought were the ones that certainly and without doubt needed to be learned. The two teenage daughters of the 2 mamas were, in turn, amazed, amused, and repulsed, by the words of wisdom tumbling forth from the mamas' mouths. These are, in no particular order, those words.

When someone lets you in in traffic, have the courtesy to wave at them in thanks.

Let people in in traffic.  It doesn’t cost a cent.

When someone won’t let you in in traffic, flip them that special one fingered wave.

Celebrate life’s moments.  Sit on the beach, buy fish and chips, have a coffee.  Do something to savour the moment.  Life should be a celebration.

There is such a thing as a glass ceiling in the workplace.  Do not be someone who just cleans it, help smash through it.

If you are horrified by something that is happening in your world, let the politicians know.  Start with the opposition members because they are just a little bit more hungry.

Sometimes in life, you need to just pull up your big girl knickers and just deal with stuff.

Yes, these boots are made for walking, but they do come in handy when we need to kick some arse.  And we can do it fashionably at the same time.

In the words of Michael Franti, you can bomb the world to pieces but you cannot bomb it into peace.

If you think there is a new life form developing under your bed, you probably need to vacuum.

Consume less every day.  Think before you buy: can I get this second hand?  Do I need to replace this?  Is this a want or a need?

Be true to yourself, no-one else will unless you set the example.

Sometime in life, you just need to swear like a drunken sailor.  Just make sure the windows on your car are up first.
