I'm 26 Now Today & Here's What I've Learned!

Last Update: November 24, 2014

I know! You're here for the inside scoop huh? Lol. Awesome! Why? It's awesome because I'm happy to have YOU here. Tonight or today, depending on your neck of the woods - I'll be sharing with YOU a little on what made my birthday really special this year.

Ready to know what it is? Great! Let's get started!

How My Day Went

To be honest. It was GREAT! I got a lot of well wishes, lots of gifts and I writing this blog post now at 11:08 pm because I pretty much just got in from an event that went well too. So yeah, I enjoyed today:-)

What I've Learnt Since Being 26

I have learned that I am happy to be alive. I have learned that conquering the fears of each day is important. I have learnt that there are still good people out there in the world. I have learned that my mind is constantly on WA, for even when I'm away from the community for too long it makes me sorta sad not being here (love you guys).

I have learned that respecting people is important. I have learned that being a lady's gentleman is necessary as a guy. I have learned that TIME is extremely valuable. I have learned that no matter what I WILL always have something new to learn each day (whether at WA or otherwise). I have learned that I have an important role to play in life.

I have learned that I love to eat (I'm a foodie, deal with it). I have learned that the BEST thing that I can do for and give myself was to create my OWN online business.

I have learned that I can do more and offer more to the world because "Mind is the king of the senses. He who has conquered his mind, senses, passion, thought and reason is king among men" - B.K.S. Lyengar and that this heart of mine makes me a humanitarian.

I have also learned that "Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up" - Thomas A. Edison

I have learned that my finding WA online, was for a reason.

So, What Did I REALLY Learn?

If I told you ALL that I've learned, honestly this blog would become too long to even publish. Lol. BUT, fact is - I learnt sooo much today guys!!!

From the Birthday boy!

Yeah, 21, and a grandmother. I was pretty disappointed myself. I thought I would a least get to 30 before being an Oma (German for grandmother). : -( lol, I am loving my life as an Oma.
Signed, 21 and holding.

Hello Doug and Debbie! :-) Thanks so very much for the best wishes you guys. And yes, I'm guilty of that "learnt", another lesson which I learned is that you really should not be writing blogs when you're either sleepy or drinking, lol. I was guilty of the first:-)

So, thanks for pointing out the error for me.

Hope you both have a lovely day! :-)
