As 2014 draws to a close here is a (not nearly complete) list of the lesson I learned this past year:

**Ignore the sign: Jump in the bouncy castle.**

**There are two ways you can look at your life: What happened to you or What you did. You only get to pick one.**

**If you want the truth ask a 5 year old.**

**Find ways to forgive mistakes.**

**Not every problem has an entirely acceptable solution.**

**To get things done tell an amazing story.**

**Travel every chance you get. Travel makes you brave.**

**Be grateful for every moment you have. Every single one.**
