Lee Sinclair | 14 comments Have we learned anything worth sharing? (I hope so.) Perhaps there's something we wish we had discovered much earlier in life. But to be honest, as soon as I thought of this topic, my mind went blank. So apparently, one thing I haven't learned is how to ask a question in a way that inspires profound thoughts. Heck, at this point, I'll take any old bit of advice that's marginally useful to at least one person somewhere in the universe.

Ruth Harris (ruthharris) | 4 comments I'm sure I've learned lots of things. Problem is, I can't remember any of them. lol

Lee Sinclair | 14 comments Yes, if only we could learn how to remember the important stuff.

Here's something ironic - I've learned that almost everything I learned as a child isn't true. Either it never was true or it's not true any more.

Nell Gavin (nellgavin) | 2 comments Here's something that I learned as a child. Thunder is the sound clouds make when they bump into each other. I swear my mother told me that. Why, oh why would she have done that? Sadly, I believed her for years.

Though I also believed people who told me I had scary big muscles when I was five years old.

Sandra Nachlinger | 4 comments Sometime in the past few years, I learned to quit doing things that I don't enjoy. Sure, there are times when I have to do something unpleasant (can't be avoided), but when I have a choice, I've learned to say "no." I always get that sigh-of-relief feeling afterwards, a sure sign that I've made the right decision.

Dee | 5 comments I've learned that it's okay to let friendshipas lapse. I still have my best friend from the fifth grade, but those high-maintenence women that I clung to are gone. I have to work hard at so many things, I can't justify working hard at having fun.
