33 Lessons taught by life and by best friends

Are you living today better than you did yesterday?

This is one of my favorite questions and one we should ask ourselves from time to time.  It allows us to really pinpoint what is working and what is not, what life lessons we have learned, what progress we have made, and what more we need to learn and unlearn.


We are all aware that life is a journey and our goal should be to take as many steps as we can in the right direction. To know that despite the fact that we may make mistakes along the way, when we look back on where we have been, we will be able to see just how far we have come.  Our views and beliefs are more developed, our understanding of our purpose is becoming clearer, and overall we are just living today in a better way than we did yesterday.  We are learning from the life lessons that have come our way.


Here is the list of 33 lessons that life and my best friends have taught me. The list is not exhaustive and the lessons have no particular priority.
