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.

If you are fortunate enough to receive an invitation to something, have the courtesy to RSVP by the due date and via the method requested on the invitation.

Never let a fool kiss you, but more importantly never let a kiss fool you.

You will never be happy once you have everything you want.  You will only want more. Be happy with what you have.

Do not be afraid to stand up for what you believe in.

You have the right to walk out of an event rather than stay and listen if what is being said is offensive to you and your ideals.

Don’t come out on a Monday morning and tell us you need: clean socks, forms signed, a 3D (to scale, working ) model of Notre Dame.  We could not be less interested.

A bit of planning saves a whole lot of time.

It won’t happen tomorrow unless you do something about it today.

No matter how hard you try, you will watch your waist disappear sometime in your 40s.  Wave it farewell and get on with life, albeit with a slightly larger circumference.

There will always be someone who’s car is newer, house bigger, income more disposable.  Don’t try to compete.

You are not qualified to give advice unless you have lived it first (or happen to write a blog about life lessons, then knock yourself out).
