"The only way to learn from life is to live it."
That was a quote from your Grandmother, after I inevitably did something that she had advised me not to do.
We are going to tell you what to do. We are going to tell you how to live your life. Most of the time you won't listen. I just want you to know that it's o.k. That is how you are going to learn. You are going to make mistakes, you are going to get your heart broken, you are going to screw things up once or twice.
Just learn from it... and don't do it again.
