Lorie Sheffer, Mid Life Celebration’s regular Sunday Guest Blogger, returns with her very special top ten list. Take it away Lorie:
In honor of both Mother’s Day- I am the mother of two and grandmother of one- and my upcoming birthday, I am offering a partial list of things I’ve learned over the years. I figure if Esquire magazine can have their Ten Things I’ve Learned segment featuring famous people, then I can do a Ten Things list as well. Why not share some of the things I’ve figured out? So, in no particular order….
#1. Nobody is as bad as you think they are; nobody is as good as you think they are.
#2. Believe the sunscreen hype. Wear it!
#3. It is totally possible to raise children who will become respectful, wonderful adults without ever spanking them.
#4. The chances of a hand reaching up from under your bed and grabbing you by the leg are slim to none.
#5. Sometimes good things happen to nasty people, and the right person doesn’t always win.
#6. The older you get, the sexier intelligence becomes.
#7. A mullet isn’t just a hairstyle, it’s a lifestyle.
#8. Just because you can get your butt into it doesn’t mean it fits.
#9. Squirrels are evil geniuses.
#10. Graciousness is a life skill well worth learning.
