I turned 35 in August, and as a result of the recent sale of DOYLES, I’ve had some time to reflect on my life as I prepare to pen a memoir. My success has been mirrored by much failure, however, what I’ve learned in the process is invaluable.
Life has taught me that…
1.) We hurt the ones we love the most and vice versa
2.) You don’t know who you are married to until you divorce them
3.) Business partnerships are a bad idea and seldom work
4.) Religion is the most divisive topic known to all mankind
5.) A man with an ego is like a baby with a bomb – God help me
6.) We learn more from children than we teach them
7.) Life is too short and death too permanent
8.) Attitude is the key to happiness
9.) Love is an action not a feeling
10.) I love myself
Surprisingly this wasn’t a premeditated list. I’m sure I could come up with many more of life’s lessons, but I like the flow of the first 10 that came to mind. Life can be hard, and can deliver a crippling blow when you least expect it, or even when you most expect it. Nevertheless, tomorrow brings the promise of hope and a future.
