    The years teach you things or you just notice something from experiences or what have you. Share your wisdom here. It could help someone else (or not).

    Here is my first one:

    Life is a series of ups and downs, seldom in-betweens. If you get an in-between relish it because after ups usually come downs. I can't tell you how often that has proved to be true for me.

    Don't wallow in the bad times so often. If you're feeling down occasionally, all it means is that your life is usually pretty good.

    1. Things almost never really happen too fast. You're only finding out something's not meant to be sooner than you otherwise would.

    2. When saying the word "poop", your mouth makes the same movements your sphincter does.

    People often show you who they really are though actions- don't be fooled when they tell you otherwise.

    It's none of your business what others think about you. Be the best you you can be. Someone, somewhere loves you, even if you don't see it or don't feel it, it's out there and so are they.

    Oddly enough, I was thinking about posting a thread like this the other day. "Post some of the best advice you've ever received". But I never got around to it, which I guess leads me to some great advice I've (repeatedly) received:

    If you want to do something, do it now, don't put it off. Make it a priority.

    Something a teacher told me while I was getting ready to apply to colleges last year:

    There's a difference between a good college and the right college.

    A person in my life i looked up to told me this once and it is so simple yet so effective.
    "Never get truly comfortable with anything, cause if you do that is when it falls apart" That simple statement has stayed with me and hit me like a ton of bricks.

    Things I learned from my depression phase:
    - You are not the only one who gets bad days.

    - When you think you're having it tough, remember that other may have it worse but still happy with their lives.

    - No matter how sad you get, killing yourself will make everyone sad.

    - There's always a second chance. One sad day will be replaced with a happy day if worked harder and moved on.

    Hawkke's rule #1 Don't ask questions you don't truly want to know the answer to.
    sub-rule #1 you'll get the answer, and it will be the one you want to hear the least.

    1. If everyone you deal with day in and day out is an asshole, maybe you need to figure out what every person you deal with have in common.

    2. You don't need a College Degree to do well. You just might have to do harder to do as well though. I know a guy working at Target as a night stocker with 2 degrees. I know a high school dropout/GED guy that is making around $130-150k a year.

    3. Pay attention to everything around you. It's called situational awareness and it will most likely save your life someday in one form or another.

    4. Learn how to throw a punch, and how to take a punch. This is a thing to know in life. You may never be out looking for a fight, but a fight can find you very easily. See #3.

    5. There will always be someone better at a thing than you. You just want to strive to have more people below you than above you.

    6. There is a huge difference in knowing that you are smarter than someone, and trying to convince others that you are smarter than them.

    7. Smile at random people when they look at you. A genuine polite smile have gotten me many things in life. From being 8th in line out of 10 at a check out, and the lady opening a new register looked at me and I smiled at her, and she asked me to come over to check out, THEN #2 and 3 in line. All the way up to the smile being the catalyst for a sticky, temporary relationship.

    8. You don't have to be a dick all of the time.

    If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs, you've probably missed something important.
