Oh whew, I am turning 32 this month. In honor of that and to show how grateful I am to you for all the support you have shown me, let’s make this post a bit more personal. I wanted to make a list of important life lessons in the 32 years of life. So why not make it that number? Most of it is stuff I wish somebody told me when I was younger. Then again, not sure if I would have believed them, because some things you just have to experience in order to learn. If it helps or inspires even one person my job here is done. Thank you for all the love, kind words and support you gave me on my journey to this moment. Cheers!
