The next chapters of The Last Lecture, by Randy Pausch, are all about the lessons he learned along his journey.
Here are the lessons I've learned (or some of them):
1. Accidents happen, and start at an early age. Things can be replaced, people can't.
2. Trust your gut, I've found it's that intuitive sense that becomes much clearer the closer you get to God and there is NO better guide.
3. Never underestimate yourself. You are exactly who God says you are and can do what God says you can do. That's a pretty big picture, so...
4. Don't sweat the small stuff, it all works out eventually, and the lessons learned are unbelievable!
5. True love RARELY happens with that first boyfriend and life is NOT over.
6. It is true, when you quit trying to find him, your soul mate is found.
7. Aging is not the worst thing in the world. With aging comes wisdom and assurance that is SO lacking in youth.
8. Blood is thicker than water.
9. ALL wounds heal...eventually.
10. Some wounds do leave scars and that is to serve as a reminder.
So...what other life lessons are out there?
